Angmering in Bloom Report
The roundabout outside the Cala Homes Development will start on 30/10/19, this has been designed by the members of A.I.B and until it is discovered what is underneath the earth will determine what will be planted there. The subject of the lack of lighting along the pathway from the A259 entrance coming out at Rowan Way and Parsons Close was raised. Cllr. Oldfield confirmed that the APC was fully aware of the situation. It is anticipated that lighting will be installed at the time that the proposed new primary school is built in Mayflower Park however the APC will seek opportunities for earlier funding.

New Trustees required

The Angmering Community Centre Association has recently issued the following statement:

"As you may be aware Angmering Community Centre is run as a registered charity, The Angmering Community Centre Association. This Association has a board of Trustees, all of whom are volunteers.

We have recently elected a new Chairman and have recruited 3 new Trustees to join the existing group. but we really need some more Trustees, especially someone who will act as Treasurer. Our current Treasurer is leaving us due to work commitments.

The role of Trustee isn't onerous. We have a number of staff that undertake much of the work and we're about to employ a part time Manager. We meet every 6-8 weeks for about 2 hours at the Centre. You don't need any special talents. We are a real mixture of skills, 90% of which is a commitment to the community and common sense.

If you think you or someone you know could spare some time to ensure the Centre continues to thrive and expand its commitment to the Community then please leave your details with either Karen or Louisa in the Admin Office or email us at office@angmeringcommunitycentre.org.uk and someone will be in touch."
