Emergency Alert Test – Sunday 23 April 2023, 3pm

Do not be alarmed! On Sunday 23 April 2023 at 3pm, there will be a national test of the UK Emergency Alerts service. An alarm will go off on your phone and/or tablet.

Emergency Alerts is a UK government service that will warn you if there’s a danger to life nearby.

In an emergency, your mobile phone or tablet will receive an alert with advice about how to stay safe.

The government does not need to know your phone number or location to send you an alert.

Reasons you might get an alert

You may get alerts about:

  • severe flooding
  • fires
  • extreme weather

Emergency alerts will only be sent by:

  • the emergency services
  • government departments, agencies and public bodies that deal with emergencies

What happens when you get an emergency alert

Your mobile phone or tablet may:

  • make a loud siren-like sound, even if it’s set on silent
  • vibrate
  • read out the alert

The sound and vibration will last for about 10 seconds.

An alert will include a phone number or a link to the GOV.UK website for more information.

You’ll get alerts based on your current location – not where you live or work. You do not need to turn on location services to receive alerts.

What you need to do

When you get an alert, stop what you’re doing and follow the instructions in the alert.

If you’re driving or riding when you get an alert

  • Do not read or respond to an emergency alert while driving or riding.
  • Find somewhere safe and legal to stop before reading the message. If there’s nowhere safe and legal to stop, and nobody else is in the vehicle to read the alert, you can listen to news on live radio to find out about the emergency.

It’s illegal to use a hand-held device while driving or riding.

If you cannot receive emergency alerts

If you do not have a compatible device, you’ll still be informed about an emergency. The emergency services have other ways to warn you when there is a threat to life.

Emergency alerts will not replace local news, radio, television or social media.

If you’re deaf, hard of hearing, blind or partially sighted

If you have a vision or hearing impairment, audio and vibration attention signals will let you know you have an emergency alert.

Alert languages

Emergency alerts will be sent in English. In Wales, they may also be sent in Welsh.

New replica milestone marks Limpsfield’s unique history

You may have noticed a new addition to the Limpsfield Village Conservation Area opposite St Peter’s Church. This small but not insignificant replica milestone – Croydon 10 – marks a key part in Limpsfield’s unique history and a significant time in its development during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.


THE OXTED HEALTH CENTRE is a very large health centre, located in Limpsfield Parish (Gresham Road) that services Limpsfield, Oxted and the surrounding areas.  Having existed on the site at 10 Gresham Road for generations, many people in Oxted and Limpsfield have used this health centre their whole life.

All health centres have been through a lot of change over the last few years and Oxted Health Centre is currently undergoing its own changes to develop and grow with the demands of our ever-growing community.

There will be some more updates from them soon, but in the meantime, courtesy of the Oxted Health Centre team, here are some things you should know, that may help you navigate your own healthcare journey with them…

Wolf’s Row – Old Allotment Site clearance

There has been a lot of chatter over the last week or so about the activity going on in the land by Wolf’s Row – a site that was previously home to the Plumbers Arms allotments, which were moved to their new site near the Community Orchard by Grub Street in 2007, or thereabouts.

This area is designated Green Belt and is privately owned by the Innes family (Titsey) and we are told by the Titsey Estate managers, Strutt & Parker, that it is not being cleared for any specific development.

Flo Wolfe, Senior Associate Director at Strutt & Parker: “[It] isn’t being cleared for specific development, [the work] is just removing the old allotment paraphernalia and clearing the grass and hedges, which are getting overgrown.”

It may look a little bare and decimated right now, but with spring growth, we’re sure it will green up and look much better.

There may even be some vestiges of the old allotments coming through, so we might even see some veggies, shrubs or flowers popping up!
