Oldfield said he would write back and also post the letter onto the APC Facebook and website; all present agreed this was a good idea and should be done.

Water Lane (South) Development - Cllr. Oldfield asked a question regarding the development South of Water Lane.

Cooper commented that he had already asked for clarification regarding this but had not yet received a reply – he will push again for a response and report back. Cllr. Oldfield also requested that the Angmering Advisory Group discuss this issue prior to the application being submitted to ADC.

Coronavirus - Update (16)

Meat in the Square have posted: "We are reopening on Wednesday (13 May) and have made several changes to enable safe working and shopping. We urge everyone who can come and shop "normally" to do so, as we have redesigned the shop to allow for safe distancing. We have new opening hours to allow time for home deliveries and pre-arranged order collections for the most vulnerable who cannot shop normally. To make things sustainable we need to minimise the pre-orders and home deliveries and maximise in-shop shopping. Therefore home delivery and collection slots will be limited and reserved for the most vulnerable. Our new opening hours will be: Tuesday - Friday 9.30am - 3.30pm, (closed Tuesday this week) Saturday 8.30am - 2.00pm. We would ask that Saturdays are left predominately for those who are working on week days and cannot get in to shop. We will review how it works over the coming weeks and hope that we can meet everyone's needs, while maintaining safe distancing. We look forward to welcoming you back - we have missed you!"

Balloon artist raises money for Chestnut Tree House

An Angmering woman is raising money for Chestnut Tree House children's hospice by walking 2.6 miles a day around Angmering for 10 days as part of the Coronavirus 2.6 Challenge, wearing a different balloon costume each day that she has created. Justine Clapham has already raised more than £1000 for the Angmering-based charity which is in urgent need of funds during this Coronavirus pandemic.

Justine's first creation for the 2.6 Challenge was a 12ft high dog suit consisting of some 300 balloons (see photo - right). Other balloon suits she has made to date include an ostrich, a lobster, Mr Tickle, and St George riding a dragon. The dog suit alone took 10 hours to construct.

Justine has been visiting various parts of the village this week, including Bramley Green, but walking in some of her suits over a 2.6 mile route has been extremely challenging in the wet and windy conditions we have been experiencing in the last few days.

She has been making balloon creations since she was a child and in March 2019 started her own business, JJ Balloon Art. You can read more about Justine's business and see other wonderful creations on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/JJBalloonArt/

Coronavirus - Update (12)

Two Angmering Nurseries are offering plant deliveries. Culberry Nursery, Dappers Lane, is able to deliver a wide range of vegetable, herbs and alpine and herbaceous plants. Highdown Garden Centre, on A259 near Ferring, is now offering a delivery service for bedding plants, fertilisers, chemicals and growing media.

West Sussex County Council is urging residents not to have bonfires to burn household or garden waste to ensure no further pressure is put on the emergency services, or our NHS colleagues having to treat people for burns and respiratory issues. Smoke and smells from bonfires can aggravate respiratory problems such as asthma/bronchitis and affect those with heart complaints.

Truffles Bakery of Small Dole are currently operating mobile vans selling essential foods in villages around West Sussex. One of their vans normally comes to Angmering for short periods on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays although they will not be coming over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. They are scheduled at the Community Centre at 12.30pm and at Dappers Lane/Merryfield Crescent at 12.45pm but they can sometimes be delayed. Essentials include bread, milk, eggs, spreads, cheese, bacon pasta, baked beans, and vegetables although there is no guarantee that they will have all of these in stock when they reach Angmering having had several other village stops beforehand. Their Facebook page gives updates on their service.
