From us all at Frant Parish Council

MyAlerts

Did you know that you can sign up to receive weekly emails from Wealden District Council? The emails provide details of refuse and recycling collections,  news and information about local events and council services. Wealden no longer sends out letters to notify neighbours to nearby by planning proposals. If you subscribe (for free) to receive MyAlerts, you can opt to be sent an email notification about any planning applications near your property.  Visit www.wealden.gov.uk to subscribe.

Severe Weather Emergency Protocol for Rough Sleepers

Wealden District Council has put in place the above initiative, until 3rd January 2022.  If you have concerns about anyone rough sleeping, please go to www.streetlink.org.uk/ and Wealden and/or an outreach service will be notified and will step in to help. If you think someone sleeping rough may be under 18 years old, please call the police on 101.

COVID-19 – getting to your vaccination and booster appointments

Are you able to get to your vaccination appointment?  Dial 2 Drive is a volunteer car service based in Tunbridge Wells. If you live in Frant Parish and need help to get to a medical appointment locally, including for a Covid-19 vaccination, you can be registered for free transport paid for by the Parish Council. For further details ring Andy Macdonald-Brown on 01892 891273 or 07989 555 957, or email Andrew.macdonald-brown@frant-pc.gov.uk
