Licensing and Charity Collections

Mid Sussex District Council is responsible for licensing such things as bars, taxis, and charity collections. Pease Pottage gets its fair share of dubious charity collectors, such as the Little Treasures Children’s Trust, whose plastic bags seem to drop through letter boxes whenever a genuine charity such as Barnardo’s are due to make a collection. The Little Treasures Children’s Trust operation is run by East London Textiles Ltd, a commercial company which sells the donated clothing for profit and passes on a token amount of the proceeds to the charity.

Enquiries about the legality of particular charity collectors can be made to the council’s Licensing Team on licensing@midsussex.gov.uk or 01444 477419.


Voting in Pease Pottage usually takes place in the sports hall in Finches Field.
