Accommodates children from 4 to 11. After this most children go on to
Oathall Community College in Haywards Heath.
There is a bus provided by West Sussex County Council to take the children to
and from school from outside the Post Office at 08.10 on schooldays.
N.B. This bus had been somewhat unreliable in the past meaning
that the parents had to organise a car rota, however things have improved
dramatically and this bus is now very reliable.

Activities planned include a drum session, “Junk 2 Funk II” show, bowling/Laserland
trip, the Christmas Party and taking part in the Pink Variety Show as well as
regular Club Nights. More details when we have them, but in the mean time
if you would like to turn up at the Martindale Centre after school at 7.15 to

of the village and the total area to the North and North East.
The Princess Royal Hospital.
RH16 4EX 01444 441881
The Princess Royal has recently reorganised which patients are
treated there and which are "offloaded" to Brighton (yes 20 miles away!). You
can find a press release about this "reorganisation"
opinion is that you might do better falling ill in a different area, like Leeds
or London or Liverpool or... ;-)

Web site which is extensive but fails to give some of the most basic information
Once again Horsted Keynes is in the middle, and is situated
midway between two major hospitals. The larger in Haywards Heath has a full 24/7
casualty department and has a specialised neurological unit. If your problem is
of a more minor nature then the A&E at The Queen Victoria Hospital in East
Grinstead (famous world wide as the home of Sir. Archibald McIndoe's "guinea
pigs" during WW2 and known as "The Queen Vic" without an Eastender in sight!) is
far more homely. Here you are likely to be seen by one of the National Health's
new Nurse Practitioners who can do most of the jobs of a doctor and you often
don't have to wait so long. The Queen Vic Casualty is only open from 9 until 6
each day but they are well able to set broken bones and put in the odd stitch.
Beware if visiting The Princess Royal, their parking charges are
astronomic, they don't give change on principal, and they have been known to
clamp people who parked their cars without paying because they are bleeding on
the floor! Just entering the grounds means that you have accepted their
stringent parking terms and makes you liable to pay their parking fines and
unclamping fees. The Queen Vic charges less, and are rather more interested in
helping you than making money on the side running a car park!
The Princess Royal now have a new money making scheme,
personal televisions! Patients have a unit by their bed where they can make
outside telephone calls which they will need to use if they want to watch TV. An
organisation then takes your credit card number (yes, in hospital!) and then
activates the TV set. The schemes' owners do however allow all patients to watch
one hour of breakfast TV for free! Seeing as there used to be a free set in the
corner of the ward this is not exactly generous. We would love to hear from a
recent patient to hear what they think of this service - you can guess our views
on making a profit from ill people already we hope!
The Princess Royal has its own radio station which is not that
unusual, however this radio station can also be heard on your radio!
Provided you have a good receiver Mid Downs Radio can be heard in Horsted Keynes
on 1350 KHz.
Contact them for requests if you have a relative in hospital.

There are National Health and private dentists and orthodontists in East
Grinstead and Haywards Heath. The Main Haywards Heath Health Centre is located
centrally in Heath Road, Haywards Heath. A very good place to contact for health
information, child clinics, contraceptive advice (including "morning after"
pill), chiropodists, N.H.S orthodontics, speech therapy, hearing tests, etc.
etc. 01444 414767. The health centre itself can be hard to find
first time but is actually underneath the large doctors' surgeries in Heath
Road. A small car park adjoins but can get crowded and blocked, better to park
in the road if you need to get away without delay.
You do not have to get the car out to get your prescription made up as there
is a local service which will collect your prescription if you leave it at the
shop, get it made up, and then bring the medicine to your door! There is no
charge for this service which is provided by Abbotts Pharmacy in Lindfield. As
this service is only provided on certain days obviously many people will prefer
to get their 'script made up themselves so for you there are two independent
chemists in Lindfield. The nearest Boots Chemists are in Haywards Heath and East
Grinstead, both about the same size; whilst Sainsbury's in Haywards Heath have a
pharmacy which is sometimes closed when it is expected to be open!
Abbotts Pharmacy 83 High Street, Lindfield, 01444 483130
This chemists shop have changed their name rather often lately which is
confusing for some. They started out as "Abbotts", then went to "Harmony
Pharmacy" for a couple of years when they tried to offer rather more than
National Health fare with treatment and massage rooms etc. This seems to have
died down a bit now and their latest sign has restored the name to one similar
enough to that they used for the last century.
Opening times awaiting confirmation. Closed Saturday afternoons.
We have been serving Lindfield with pills and potions, perfumes
and toiletries for over one hundred years. The remedies have changed but the old
world courtesy and service remain. Cantassium vitamins and minerals, Homeopathic
and herbal remedies, Aromatherapy Oils Animal Medicines, Horse Wormers, Pet
foods and medicines Babies toys, clothing and accessories Prescription
collection & delivery service.
Selbys Pharmacy 33 High Street, Lindfield, 01444 483614
Twenty doors away the other chemist in Lindfield is next door to the
supermarket, a bit more modern and they seem to open later into the evenings
until about 6.30 or so. Less health foods, more Chemists things. Take your pick!
Open 8:30 to 6:30 pm weekdays, 8:30 to 5:00pm Saturdays.
Collection and Delivery service available.

St Peter and St James is set in 28 acres of countryside on the border of
Wivelsfield Green and North Chailey and serves the towns of Lewes, Uckfield,
Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and surrounding villages. We provide in-house, day

Old Peoples Housing
We were not sure how to title this paragraph but if you have an aged parent
and they live in sheltered accommodation you will most likely find them at The
Abbeyfield Society (Mid Sussex) otherwise known as Westfield House.
This recently extended building is divided into two halves with a
nursing home on one side and small flats (called bungalows) on the other.
Residents eat in a communal dining room and just make light meals for
themselves. To be honest this is one of the better residential homes that we
know of, the staff are kind and there is none of that shall we say "musty" smell
that is the sign of a badly run care home. There are clubs and things to keep
them stimulated and the whole ambiance is light and airy. Unfortunately to gain
access one must still ring a buzzer, explain oneself and then ask to be let in,
which reminds us of establishments owned by Her Majesty! We have never been sure
why sane old people have to live behind such a rigid security screen. There used
to be two care homes on the road to Lindfield, Paxhill Park was one of the most
depressing places that we have ever visited (both our parents died there) and
has thankfully closed down, the other is friendly and still open. N.B. Paxhill
Park Golf Club which occupies the grounds of the former, is NOT to
be confused with the previous sentence.
Birch Grove Rd,
The village used to have its own policeman who covered Horsted Keynes
and Danehill on his push bike (the police house is still there) but to have a
face to face meeting with the police (unless they come looking for you ;-) can
be a little awkward in these cash starved times.
The nearest police stations are:
East Grinstead open 08.30 - 16.30 Mon to Fri and 09.00 to 13.00 Sat.
Haywards Heath open 08.30 - 20.00 Mon to Fri and
10.00 - 18.00 Sat and Bank Holidays.
Crawley is open 08.00 - 20.00 Every Day.
The only Sussex police station with a manned 24/7 front office is in Brighton
(in Kemp Town, just up from the Palace Pier).
March 2011 - It is
extremely likely that there will soon be NO police stations open 24/7 in Sussex,
while others such as Heathfield are closing completely "except for
appointments". Please check before travelling, especially with the present cost
of petrol! A Sussex Police spokesperson said "Sussex Police are committed to
improving its service to the public" - this is NOT a joke.

The dust cart collects from the road outside village homes weekly.
The current collection day for Horsted Keynes is Thursday,
normal rubbish one week, recycling the next. Full details on the
Mid Sussex web site.
In addition several
times a year on Sunday morning (much to the chagrin of church attendees ;-) you
can bring household and garden waste to the car park by the British Legion free
of charge courtesy of a deal with the Parish Council. This saves the car journey
to the nearest council tips which are at East Grinstead and Burgess
Hill. A welcome service which is well used, so get there
early as the lorry leaves promptly when full. For weekly collections it is now necessary to leave your dustbin
on the roadside with the lid closed. The men will not open gates to look for your bins. There is
also a recycling scheme and you are given two different coloured boxes, in one
you leave paper and newspapers, in the other you leave clean recyclable plastic. The
boxes' contents are collected on alternate weeks so you need to get (and
remember to stay) in sync with the current weeks collection schedule! The Parish
Council ask that you bring your box in after the collection especially if the
men have neglected to empty it. Newspapers blow everywhere, and there is no
chance that the men will come back to see what they missed.
Route 270 Runs sort of hourly to East Grinstead and Haywards Heath 6
days a week with just 5 busses in total on Sundays.
www.metrobus.co.uk will show you the
gory details. We have been contacted by MetroBus who tell us that
the service is much better that it used to be, perhaps it is but busses still
often run empty (apart from the driver;-). Shame as it's use it or lose it!
The main village bus stop is located on Station Road about 20 metres from the
Post Office. There is under cover seating and public toilets. You will probably
spend quite some time there waiting for the busses but punctuality has improved
lately and the service is quite reliable.
Some people who work in Haywards Heath, and even London, manage to travel
regularly by bus
for part of their journey.
We can't not mention Horsted Keynes railway station run by
The Bluebell Railway.
At present the line runs South to North from Sheffield Park to Kingscote a mile
or so South of East Grinstead with Horsted Keynes in the middle (again!). When
the line is extended to reach East Grinstead in 2010 (or 2011 or 2012...) there
could be a very handy local service. The full trip would be just 15 minutes and the
new Bluebell station is right outside East Grinstead Sainsbury's. So there
is no reason why you won't be able to leave the car in the garage or at the
station (free parking) - and get your shopping by train in the not too distant
future! We must also mention that local residents get a very substantial
discount on The Bluebell Railway Details Here. This isn't
particularly well publicised and you have to ask at Horsted Keynes station and
show a locally addressed document to qualify but the discount card is worth
getting. The Bluebell also own the line of the track from Horsted Keynes to
Haywards Heath via Ardingly. Reinstalling this short line would be a real boon
for commuters, but it isn't going to happen anytime soon! Parking in Haywards
Heath is expensive at £5+ a day to park near the station! If you become a life
member of the Bluebell you receive free First Class travel on all
services FOR LIFE, at just £400 this could prove quite a bargain!
Until recently we were lucky to get a 2 Meg connection in the centre of the
village. Fortunately after a lot of nudging from your village web site BT have installed
a mini exchange in the green cabinet opposite the Post Office. This means that
most subscribers in the village who pay for a fast connection are now able to
connect at a minimum of 4 Meg. We are right on the edge of the village but have
a well configured system that gives us a speed just over 7 Meg. So if internet
connection speed is important to you it can be done! Naturally some villagers
don't get anywhere near these speeds although distance seems less important than
before; some outlying farms connect at amazing speeds. Low speeds can be due to a poor telephone line
but is more commonly a result of using a cheap ISP who makes users connect with
too many others. With broadband you do get
what you pay for! For the avoidance of doubt the Dane Hill exchange is not one
of those where ISPs can install their own equipment. So "up to 20 Meg for £6 a
month" just does not happen here! Sky and Tiscali for example charge an extra
£10 a month to connect in this area. This is sometimes not made as clear as it
Wireless broadband in our area is not good although the Three signal has
recently improved but could not be described as good anywhere. There was an
advanced scheme to install a mast just on the edge of our village which would
have given us all great mobile phone and mobile broadband. Unfortunately the
"not in my back yard" brigade soon put a stop to that with warnings of headaches
and other scares! Now the same people are complaining because they can't use
their mobile phones or i-Pads on the village green! You might find it
interesting to see what we wrote about it at the time as despite being one of
the nearest houses to the proposed masts we were firmly in favour
Orange mast application .
The phone box in the centre of the village does not take coins and may not
even be there much longer. This is because of "lack of use". Trouble is this
village does not have a very good mobile phone coverage so we think this loss a
We think it fair to say that Horsted Keynes is not well served by mobile
phone services. When one operator (Orange) tried to put up a new mast in the area
there was an outcry. We think that if you use mobile phones then you should be
prepared to put up with the resulting infrastructure. Oh well!
If you live in Church Lane or beside the church then you will have great
difficulty connecting with a mobile whatever network you use. If you are
thinking of changing provider then without doubt O2 give the best coverage. In
many parts you can get an O2 signal inside your home. Perhaps not everywhere but
standing beside a certain window or in a certain place which at least saves
having to go outside in your nightie!. Of the other operators their service
coverage goes (in OUR opinion) from best to worst, O2 (best), Orange, Vodaphone
with T-Mobile last of the list! However we think that the T-Mobile signal has
increased recently possibly due to a new transmitter in West Hoathly "leaking"
signals our way. The 3 mobile broadband
package seems to work well around the Green and in higher parts of the village,
elsewhere it's probably best to use a landline.
Incidentally, Tesco mobile now use the O2 network so if you see a special
offer phone on their network it is likely to connect well in the main parts of
our village. We know people who use their iPhones on Tesco inside the village
Our telephone exchange is located a couple of miles across the fields in Dane Hill
but as mentioned elsewhere on this site there is a mini broadband booster
exchange in the green cabinet opposite the post office. This gives a fast
broadband connection to the village. The Dane Hill exchange has not yet been upgraded so you
cannot yet take advantage of the cheaper offers for a direct line from the likes of Sky etc. The
latest info that we have is for a planned upgrade in the latter part of 2010.
Cost of Calls
We get not a penny for writing this small section, it is just
for the information of villagers.
If you use BT for your telephone calls then
they have just increased the cost of connecting you - each and EVERY call that
you dial even a quick "hello" now costs 9p PLUS VAT just for connection. When
you add the minimum cost of the time component then the cheapest that a call
will cost you is probably 11p! That is each and every call INCLUDING those where
you just dial the local number without the 01825! We have found that many
villagers, particularly those who are older do not realise this. So what can you
do? There is an excellent service provided by
www.18185.co.uk . Register with them (it is FREE and there is no
obligation). Then dial 18185 before each and every call and you will be
astounded by the savings that you can make. 18185 charge just 5p including VAT
for connecting you and then charge much less or even nothing for the time. For example at present ALL UK fixed line calls are FREE
after the 5p is paid! Yes, dial 18185 and then the full number that you want to
speak to and you will be
charged just 5p for a 1 hour chat to anywhere in the UK! Overseas calls are
extremely cheap too, just 1p per minute to speak to Australia or half a penny a
minute to speak to a mobile phone in America! We understand that this may seem unbelievable but it does work and the call quality is perfect - often
clearer and louder than BT! Don't be misled, these are NOT internet calls.
Their service even tell you how much your call will cost just before they put you
through. For example calls to mobile phones are at present 6p per minute in the
daytime and 3p a minute at weekends. So you hear "6 pence per minute" just
before the call rings when you dial a UK mobile.
To repeat we have received nothing for mentioning 18185 but as many local
readers tend to trust us we are passing on this information. We would love to
hear how you get on with this service.
So far two positive reports from villagers, both
mentioning the extremely good call quality. Another says that it's cheaper on
some other services - yes but they are probably internet calls which are of
Horsted Keynes is supplied by EDF Energy (the new name for Seeboard). Whoever
you actually pay for your electricity it is through their wires that your supply
comes and it is these overhead wires that can give problems. It is not at all
uncommon to have power cuts lasting several hours especially in Winter but
recent cable updates seem to have helped.
The village is supplied with electricity from two directions which splits it
very roughly into South East and North West halves - the dividing line is across
the green between the two pubs. It is almost unknown for both halves to be off
supply at the same time so whilst your neighbour may be tucking into a hot meal
you might well be huddled around a candle, and of course vice versa! The upshot
of all this is that many residents have their own portable generators to keep
the central heating pump and a few lights going, others use rechargeable
batteries with inverters. The problem got so bad recently that the local old
persons housing had their own full size mains back up generator installed in the
garden - you have been warned, prepare for winter (or adopt a granny at Westall
You can read about our power problems here .
Electricity Emergency Number
0800 783 8866 - or from a mobile use 01243 50 8866 which is cheaper, it is pre programmed into our 'phone!
DO ring them if your power goes off as they have no automatic
detection equipment for small blackouts in this area
and rely on being told about faults so that they can get the engineers out.
For the sake of completeness we should mention that there is no mains gas
supply in or near the village, nor is any connection mooted. There IS a high
pressure underground gas supply line a couple of miles to the South which
carries the main UK gas grid but we don't recommend a drill and long hose pipe
;-). Quite a number of local houses run their central heating and cooking from a bottled gas tank in the garden.
A surprising number of homes still cook using kerosene.
in Horsted Keynes
Horsted Keynes is at the extreme range of all the television transmitters so
it will entirely depend on which part of the area you live in which television
service you will receive. Most parts can get signals from the Heathfield
transmitter meaning that they will get the Meridian East ITV service together
with the "Tunbridge Wells" BBC local news. Others have a tall aerial pointed at
Crystal Palace so they get the London ITV and BBC stations albeit with rather a
lot of aircraft flutter from Gatwick Airport. There are even a few nooks and
crannies to the West where the only usable signal is from Midhurst, meaning that
these viewers have to watch stories about Southampton and the New Forest before
all else! Unfortunately Channel5 is NOT available to any terrestrial viewer in
Horsted Keynes without using Freeview*. In Summer continental interference can
virtually close down all TV reception (including Freeview*) for hours or even
days on end so for a good service Sky satellite, which is not affected by this
sort of interference, is to be firmly recommended.
* If you want to watch the new digital "Freeview" channels then you may well
need an aerial upgrade. Despite the Heathfield transmitter being only 20 or so miles away it
seems that due to the range of channels used by the new services older aerials just aren't good enough to get all the Freeview
services. With an older aerial you may well just get the main BBC channels
losing the extra ones.
You can get television, DVD,
satellite, Sky, video and TV repairs advice on 790406.
We will be happy to install your new equipment too!
We will also be happy to put you in touch with a local aerial fitter who won't
rip you off!
There are aerial firms who have featured on ITV "House of Horrors" working
in our area - be careful!
On another television point you can't miss the fact that Horsted Keynes is on
TV in one shape or form (usually Horsted Keynes Bluebell Railway station)
almost every week (and
sometimes several times a day if you watch the Satellite Channels ;-).
Occasionally they need film extras at short notice; the best way to join in is
to join the Bluebell
Railway as a member. The film people are very good and usually do their best
to clean up very
well after themselves, although there are exceptions. Our office still has a
broken window caused by them "blowing up a train" with a massive explosion on
two nights in succession at 2 a.m. for the movie
Charlotte Grey. This
crew were extremely arrogant and didn't even try to let villagers know what was
happening. We lost
two nights sleep, didn't even get free tickets, and the film flopped. (moan
Unlike many (perhaps most) of our neighbouring villages Horsted Keynes still
has a shop and Post Office available to all. Before getting the car out
therefore please don't forget that unless these businesses are used our green
will become like many others, houses (owned by weekend residents), parked cars,
and little else! The businesses in the village between them stock most regular
things that a family needs and after taking petrol or fares into account
shopping locally for day to day items can work out cheaper than driving into
Horsted Keynes Stores
Open every day including Sunday mornings, sell food, drink, wine and
newspapers. Newspaper delivery service.
Horsted Keynes Post Office
Open Monday to Saturday for pensions, benefits, cards, stationery etc.,
as well as the usual Post Office items, and yes you can tax your car there!
Monday to Saturday 9.00 to 5.30. Closed for lunch 1.00 - 2.15.
Closes for the day at 1.00.p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.
Haywards Heath and East Grinstead both have the usual rather limited
range of shops. In East Grinstead Woolworth's have gone but W.H.Smith, Sainsbury's, etc. are
in both towns although Haywards Heath tends to have larger stores and also a
small Mark's and Spencer store in the "Orchards" shopping centre. "Shopping
Centre" is something of an exaggeration as there isn't much else there! Tesco
have a small store in Haywards Heath round the corner from Boots the Chemist. With their limited
range of goods there's not really enough for a weekly stock up, and they can't
at present compete with Sainsbury's who tend to exploit their monopoly
with some of their prices, apparently one of the most expensive branches in the
East Grinstead has most of the above shops as well as an Argos store,
together with some smaller specialist shops.
In contrast Crawley has the South's largest indoor shopping centre
right in the town centre at County Mall. If a shop isn't found in or next door
to County Mall then it isn't worth visiting anyway! Vast car parks giving easy access
to the shops with reasonably priced parking. Crawley is about 15
minutes drive away from Horsted Keynes if you keep to the speed limit. This is
highly recommended as Crawley's 30 m.p.h. speed limit (otherwise known as "The
Crawley Crawl") is well enforced even at 2 a.m. with cameras a plenty. You have
