Isn’t it amazing just how the computer has taken charge of our lives. Ten years ago, email and the cyber world was thought to be little more than a useful tool that would assist communication sometime in the future. Only four years ago when we first set up the Residents Association, the ‘useful tool’ label had changed to ‘essential tool’.  And today the computer with all its accessories  and facilities is central to and at the heart of any campaign and it is unthinkable to operate without one. Indeed what misery manifests when something goes wrong and we find ourselves isolated from the cyber world out there!  But while usage of the cyber world has intensified at an amazing rate the number of people who understand how to operate it and how to sort out its problems has not moved quite so fast.

However we in The Sellindge and District Residents Association have been very fortunate. For the moment we realised we needed a computer genius, a computer genius emerged like a longed for prophet and has guided us through storms and gale force winds towards the promised land.  This genius is Dave Motley who not only had to develop our computer communication techniques and establish our web site but he also had to tolerate people like me who thought a computer was merely an impossible to understand typewriter. Now, not everyone would say Dave is the most patient man on the planet but I would like to say that he has showed over the years not just great reserves of patience but amazing tolerance and incredible fortitude especially when dealing with computer illiterates like me. And at the same time he inspired us to organise our thinking so that our principles remain steady and unalloyed. I owe him much as does the Residents Association and the people of Sellindge.  But as they say, all good things come to an end. We wish Dave well as he now devotes his energy and skills to new and challenging issues.

Fortunately holding sway today is God’s evolution (as distinct from Darwin’s – God’s meets need while Darwin’s does desperate battle with survival). So as one genius retires another  steps forward. Kyle Clark, young and creative, has now taken charge and a new vision is developing which will emphasise why Sellindge is a great place to live. As I watch Kyle at work on the computer I want to kneel in humble adulation. What is important is that he sees his contribution as a development, evolving what was established  before by Dave Motley. And that makes me happy for I am a believer in creating conditions whereby evolution rather than chaotic devolution operates.  Please do make a regular date with the web site –  We remain dedicated to bringing to your attention together with all who support us, issues and developments that affect the whole area. And good fortune to Dave Motley and Kyle Cark.

It’s recently come to our notice that a gang of tarmac layers are offering their services in carrying out work on householder’s drives.

Needless to say, this gang is targeting the old and vulnerable and ripping them off; not just overcharging by hundreds of pounds, but by thousands.

If you are approached by this gang, have nothing to do with them, but try to get their truck registration number and telephone the police. If you suspect that a friend or neighbour is being targeted by this gang please do the same.
