Welcome from the Chairman   


The East Dean and Friston Residents’ Association (RA) is run by local

volunteers with the task of giving support to the community, representing

your views to various       authorities such as: Parish Council, WDC, SDNPA

and our local MP, plus other groups where they can influence our community’s

wellbeing. It is also instrumental in providing village activities and

addressing    environmental issues to maintain and enhance the village

atmosphere and appearance. The RA communicates effectively via a regular

email platform conveying current local information & news


Our aim is to enrol and represent as many members in the community as

possible, thus enabling the RA to represent a broad spread of opinion on

aspects which may require an appropriate response.


We believe that with the many recent property changes in the area, we are

becoming   a more diverse and    younger community and our planning for the

future must reflect this.

If you are not at present a member of the RA I hope you will join us by

completing the attached application form to ensure we can reflect as many

opinions as is possible and   keep you advised of current village news.
