Volunteers Wanted

There are many groups of volunteers within the parish that support specific causes about which they feel strongly. There are however a number of organisations, such as the parish council, that need volunteers to provide their energy and time for specific events or actions and it would like to hear from anybody that would be prepared to give their time as and when necessary by forming an Angmering Village Volunteer Bank (AVVB).
