Angmering Village Life
Following several complaints from residents in Angmering about mopeds being driven in an anti-social manner, over the weekend - as a result of calls - police seized a moped under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act. The rider had previously been issued a warning using this legislation but continued to ride anti-socially. All such anti-social driving/driving incidents should be reported to the police under Operation Crackdown. http://www.operationcrackdown.org/
Angmering Twinning Association are holding a Craft & French Flea Market in the Village Hall this coming Saturday (16th February) from 10am to 2pm.
A number of local charities and small local craft & other businesses will have stalls and these include:
Hand-knitted goods, plants, greetings cards, fused glass & mosaic crafts, fabric bags & cushions, jewellery, soft toys, bric-a-brac, books, RNLI & Lavinia Norfolk Centre charity stalls, a Cancer United Tombola, and a French Raffle!
Further, there will also be a locally-produced Vegan food stall and light Refreshments.
The shops and businesses in the centre of Angmering village have set up their own FaceBook website page which can be viewed at https://www.facebook.com/angmeringvillageshops . This is a great way of telling villagers (and those further afield) what's new in their establishments and if there are any special offers - it's effectively a "one-stop portal" to Angmering's wonderful diverse shops and services.

A pale blue Honda Jazz automatic using the disabled bay outside the Co-Op in The Square, appears to have shot forward and hit the corner of shop's wall. The accident, which occured early this afternoon (Friday), left oil and petrol leaking from the vehicle. An ambulance, police, and the fire services attended the scene and sand was deployed to soak up the spillage. The ambulance left the scene at 3.15pm but it is unknown whether the lady driver was injured although it is understood she was able to walk with paramedics into the ambulance. The car was eventually loaded onto a recovery vehicle and was taken away at 3.45pm.

About 1cm of snow fell and covered central Angmering last night but, by dawn, the thaw had already started to set in. These photos were kindly sent in by Bill Barwell which illustrate how quickly the snow started to melt.
