Snippets from Angmering Parish Council's Community, Leisure, Environment & Wellbeing Committee Minutes of Meeting of 27 September 2017

Bank opposite Village Hall
There was discussion regarding the possibility planting of primroses on the bank opposite the village hall and undertaking groundworks to improve the appearance of the bank. It was noted that the bank would need to be properly surveyed before any works could be carried out, due to the presence of a WW2-era air raid shelter.

Angmering Disability Group
The Group had held its first meeting, which had been attended by two people, at the Angmering Social Club. The Group had been made very welcome and the Club’s facilities were ideal. Only 2 people attended. Thanks to the office for sorting the hedge by the chippy. Report form about the pavement by the level crossing. Office to take to WSCC.

CCTV provision
The Deputy Clerk referred to the concerns raised by residents about anti-social behaviour at Mayflower Park and noted that the Chief Constable and Rt Hon Nick Herbert MP had been informed of these. In view of these concerns it was appropriate to consider the possible installation of CCTV at Mayflower Park and the Community Centre open space. The Committee directed the Deputy Clerk to make enquiries and obtain indicative quotations for the necessary works.

Angmering Disability Group

The Angmering Disability Group was established in July by parish councillor Mike Hill-Smith to give voice to disabled people, like himself, to get their problems resolved with regard to access,etc. The Group holds its meetings at the Angmering Social Club. in Arundel Road (opposite St Wilfrid's School). The Club is equipped with ramps and toilets for disabled people who are all welcome.

The Group's first meeting was held at 1.30pm on Wednesday 20 September and three members attended producing some requirements for the parish council to resolve using the complaints reporting form carried by all parish councillors. Mike says that the reporting system does work as was demonstrated very recently when he complained about the overgrown hedge obstructing the path close to Big Fry in The Square which has now been cut back making the path accessible to wheelchairs again.

Anyone wanting to join the Group or assist Mike can phone him on (01903) 770453 or email michaelhillsmith62@gmail.com

Attempted Co-op Break-In

Thieves wearing hooded jackets yesterday attempted to break into the Co-op in The Square at about 4.00am yesterday morning (Tuesday 5 September). Several panes of glass were broken in the door but they failed to gain entry. After the attempt, the white BMW they were driving, which had been stolen from Brighton, was abandonned in St Margaret's church car park and set on fire.

Earlier, it is believed that the same thieves broke into a Sainsbury's Local and a Tesco in Billingshurst, and a couple of hours later they gained entry into Hartley's wine shop in Rustington. Detective Constable Sara Liau of Sussex Police said: “Our investigation is ongoing but it seems likely that all these offences were linked.”

This afternoon, PCSO's were in The Square apparenetly questionning local householders to ascertain whether they had witnessed or heard anything during the Angmering attemped break-in.
