AONB clarification letter


It is with great sadness and regret that Crowborough Town Council has taken the difficult decision to cancel its planned Fireworks and Christmas Fair events scheduled for later this year. The decision was taken due to restrictions on mass gatherings and difficulties involved in enabling such events to be socially-distanced and COVID-secure.

Looking to the future, the council hopes to be able to host a weekend festival in summer 2021. This event would be a fantastic opportunity to bring the community back together after what has been a difficult year for all residents. Further details will follow in due course.

Crowborough Rock Snake

The council had decided to create a permanent feature from the rock snake which has been lovingly created during the pandemic lockdown. It proposes to have the stones installed on the lower, triangular area of Chapel Green. The current design proposal involves a low, semi-circular wall which can contain and display the stones to their best advantage. This feature will then be surrounded by a planted forget me knot and lavender maze, providing an enjoyable area for all to enjoy and preserving the beautifully decorated stones. The initial design is below.

The final designs and costings will be discussed at the meeting of the Communication and Events Committee on 11th August 2020 before being presented to Full Council on 15th September 2020.  Once approved, it is anticipated the feature will be installed during autumn 2020.

Recent weather conditions are impacting the condition of some of the stones and the council would encourage anyone who has placed one to check on its condition, and to re-paint or varnish them ahead of the project’s installation in the autumn if necessary.
