On Monday 13 May, whilst Police Community Support Officers were out on foot patrol in Angmering Skate Park, the rider and owner of a motorcycle was given a Section 59. This allows police to give drivers a warning if they are reported to have used their vehicle in a manner causing alarm, distress or annoyance.
It was noted with regret from an obituary in The Daily Telegraph yesterday that Mr John Fiitzroy Pechell Somerset had died on 17 March this year, aged 95.
Mr Somerset (known as Fitzroy) and his family were not only property and landowners in the parish of Angmering but he was the Patron of St Margaret's Church, as had been many of his ancestors. The Somerset family had owned Castle Goring from the mid-19thC until 2014, although Fitzroy and his family had lived at nearby Holt Farm for many years. The estates in Angmering had been purchased by the Bishopp family of Parham in 1615 and ownership descended through family lines to the Pechells, and then to the Somersets. Memorials to the Pechells and the Somersets can be found in St Margaret's Church and its churchyard.
