The water supply to the upper parts of Cuckfield for years has not been very satisfactory due to the non existence of a high level service it is now proposed to remedy the matter and £120 is to be applied for the purpose by the Water Board.

A committee consisting of Mr T Best Cuckfield Mr G Box (Ardingly) Mr S Knight (Cuckfield) Mr Plummer and Mr Pannett (Haywards Heath) and Major Lister JP has been appointed to consider the new scale of water charges.
