Lockdown is easing and working from home will soon be more of a choice than a necessity. A hybrid of home and office working will be a reality for many, and many more will be heading back to the work place full time. If you have spent many hours indoors during lockdown, you will have been encouraged to keep active through online videos by motivators and others. When we go back to work, those good habits must stay with us! That is why we are designating Thursday April 29th as National On Your Feet Britain Day – the day when Get Britain Standing, in association with Active Working CIC, asks the nation to unite against prolonged workplace sitting. Your challenge is to #Move More and #SitLess – anyway you can. We already know that regular movement throughout the day leads to

By John Heaton

Census 2021 is going into overdrive. Census Day was on 21 March and many, many people have completed their census forms. The majority of those have been filled in online but post boxes were also full on the 22nd with forms that had been filled in and returned. Our teams are now following up households from which we’ve not received anything. So you shouldn’t get a knock on the door if you’ve filled in the census form. If you haven’t, dig out the letter which you got early in March and get it done. If you’ve lost it, go online at and get a replacement unique household access code if you want to fill it in online. If you need a paper copy, you can get one of those online too, and there are pages of guidance which are very comprehensive and easy to navigate. If you don’t use the internet, then there are a number of options. You can ring the census on 0800 141 2021 and they will be able to order you a paper form. They will also be able to answer your questions and you can complete your census form on the phone too. West Sussex Libraries are also offering a phone completion service. Ring them on 0330 222 3455 Monday to Friday between 10.00am – 4.00pm to arrange it. We are hoping that you will be able to book an appointment in person at Lancing, Worthing,

Goring, Durrington, Findon and Broadwater libraries using the same number, when the COVID19 restrictions allow. Ring your local library too to find out if they are open. They have computers there if you want to use one of those. Do ask friends or family for help if that would be the easiest way to fill in your census form. They may be able to go online for you to order a paper form and they might also access the guidance on the website to help answer your questions. Our field officers will also have replacement household access codes, paper forms and will be

able to answer your questions but they won’t be able to help you fill in the forms themselves because they are not going to be entering your house, but don’t wait for them! The Office for National Statistics (ONS) hope that the initial results from the census will be available in March 2022 and the full results a year later, and local authorities, the NHS, charities and other organisations are really keen to see and start using them for planning such things as medical facilities, schools, transport and other vital facilities based on up to date and accurate information.

John Heaton, the local Census Engagement Manager will be liaising very closely with the people on the ground, sharing his knowledge of the area and what he has learned from working with charities and local authorities ranging from West Sussex County Council to District, Borough and Parish Councils contact John through or for more information, visit

Not longnow… Now that March has left like a lamb, as according to tradition, April is here and the anticipation of everything re-opening is almost palpable… non-essential shops and hospitality venues with outdoor seating will be “back” from 12th April (if the current timetable remains). Restaurants with indoor seating only will return to business from 17th May and for me as a chef that cannot come soon enough! Many establishments have survived and even thrived by switching to home delivery and takeaway… in many forms, from burgers to pies, from pizza to full blown “finish at home” 3-course meals. However, there is no greater joy than seeing your culinary creation on a plate, ready to go out to a customer’s table.

May is a great time for seasonal ingredients too, so there’s added excitement. Jersey Royal potatoes in their prime, British asparagus, fresh peas and broad beans and so much more. In this period of limbo, I for one am planning my menus to showcase such jewels. In the meantime, delivering fine dining to people’s doorsteps carries on… The Dining Room

Tarring Community Forum We had our regular zoom meeting in March and have been keeping an eye on what is going on around our area, lockdown doesn’t stop all things! Pot Holes We discussed the pot holes in the area, in particular around St Lawrence Avenue and Wiston Avenue. Cllr Bob Smytherman encourages all residents to report any concerns they have about pot holes to Love West Sussex. Details can be found here https://love. Parking St Lawrence Surgery has been doing a sterling job with the local vaccination programme. The knock on effect however is that parking has at times been hazardous around the area, restricting views around the roundabouts. We would encourage sensible and safe parking at all times.

Tarring Park We are excited to announce that we are hoping that Picnic in the Park will return on 12th August. This is a case of “save the date” because as the experiences we have had over the last year, the guidelines about social distancing etc could change.

We are continue working on our Rainwater Garden and are very much looking forward to working with children from local schools for the “Children’s Bed” next month. We should soon be seeing a colourful display from the bulbs that were planted last autumn.

We are looking into getting extra bins for the park, including another dog waste bin and a recycling bin. Another addition to the park that we are interested in doing is putting educational information about the history of trees for park users to enjoy. The Bowls Club toilets will be open for public use all the time the club is open, but sadly need to be closed if the club is closed.

Tarring Flood Action Group is one of only a handful of local volunteer groups in West Sussex, who are essentially neighbours helping each other out to make our homes less vulnerable to floods. Recently we have linked up with other groups around the country, which is great for swapping ideas. Our “Adopt a Drain” initiative has proved quite popular with other groups!

Wild Inside

Where have all the

flowers gone?

Dr Barbara Pilley Shaw

Connecting cosmically with ancestors, or spiritually with recently departed, is marked by erection of imported stone. Neolithic folk quarried volcanic bluestone in Welsh Hills, with later generations engineering their transport overland to Stonehenge. Stonemasons create memorials from rock transported by sea from around the world – slate and limestone from Ireland, marble from Italy and Greece, and granite from India, China and Scandinavia. Climate Change, with rising seas, sees hard Norwegian granite boulders also deployed in Sussex sea defences, often replacing eroded wooden breakwaters. Back with flowers there’s a further alarming question ‘Where have all REALLY WILD flowers gone? Graveyards and the wider countryside were awash with them – snowdrops, daffodils and primroses; sloe, cherry and May blossom; bluebells, poppies and oxeye daisies. As they disappear so too do pollinating beetles, bees, butterflies and hoverflies, wildlife that ensures a harvest of seeds and fruits.

Changes in land ownership and management, intensive hi-tech agriculture, industrial development, suburban creep and unsustainable transport projects all contribute to serious degradation of rural landscape. In towns and cities too, wildflowers disappear alongside reduction of smaller Green Spaces – back gardens, local and business parks and school grounds. Artificial grass, decking and hardcore usurp lawns and flower-beds. Living landscape corridors of trees and hedgerows become imported timber fencing, metal railings or brick walls. Foreign exotics, stunning specimens, bloom along promenades and parks but not all favour pollinators. A few are toxic to wildlife and soil systems. Others become alien invaders detrimental to the balance of nature and out-competing much loved bee-friendly wildflowers. Further issues arise with pot plants, cut flowers and wreaths produced for seasonal or family occasions. Whether in UK or abroad, intensive horticulture

Pete Seeger’s song continues – ‘young girls picked them, everyone’ – from gravesides of soldier lovers who lost their lives in fields of Flanders and other war zones. Wildflowers became emblematic of Remembrance, of lives lost in international conflicts, when seas of red poppies bloomed in disturbed lands. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has created a special poppy British Wildflower Mix for sowing in memorial grounds.

can involve using liquid culture in heated glasshouses or acres of plastic polytunnels. Serious environmental issues arise from carbon emitted during production and transport or from staggering fertiliser and plastic pollution. Artificial ‘silk’ bouquets are popular but no busy bee pollinator is utilised in the production of plastic plants and there will be no soil-enriching, life-enhancing compost from the messy decay they don’t undergo! When dumped, they break up (but not down), becoming nonbiodegradable microplastic in soils, impacting on the natural environment and ultimately our own human health. So for a beautiful bowery flowery Happy Easter with a ‘Drip, Drip, Drop Little April Showers’, can we be more REALLY WILD and use flower power to shop, sow, grow and recycle (compost!) more wisely?

Inside the Real Repair Shop

Free to take Hello again! This time, I want to talk about something that’s seemingly become the norm for many streets up and down the land. The ‘free to take’ trend has arrived from somewhere, and I can’t quite put my finger on why it’s happened.

1 This is the motor, removed from the Dyson. There are many available second hand, which makes repair viable.

I have a few working theories, that I’d like to share with you. Indulge me for a few minutes if you please. With UK-wide social restrictions still in place and most of the high street closed at the moment, many of us are taking more walks locally to spend time, which isn’t only good for our health, it’s also much, much kinder on one’s wallet. Whilst out walking, have you noticed how many households leave small appliances and other domestic items out on the pavement on offer to passersby? I have. To be honest, I never know if the items are fair game, or if I should ask permission before taking something. Whilst mulling this over, during the past few months, I’ve decided that it is OK to take discarded items, if it’s obvious that they’ve been abandoned and that I can do something useful with them. I suspect that there are many reasons why items are being abandoned like this, and I’d like to share my thinking with you. This year so far, I have acquired a cordless kettle, a 4 slice toaster, and two Dyson vacuum cleaners. Why you ask? It’s a good question, but before I go in to why I think they were all left out for ‘Magpie Matt’, here’s another thing; the kettle and the toaster worked perfectly, with a cleanup. The two Dysons needed

16 01903 357003

Matt Marchant

thirty pounds worth of spare parts between them. When new, the vacuum cleaners would have been worth about £300, each. So, why do folk do it? Why leave items out, working or not, for others to take for free? Here is a list of possible reasons why. 1 Folk just get bored with an item, and see so little value in it any more that they want to get shot of it quickly but feel, possibly with some guilt, that they should give it away, rather than disposing of it. We’re bombarded with advertising that tells us to replace things often by retailers and manufacturers, so it’s hardly surprising that some people feel this way. 2 It won’t fit in the bin. General waste bins should only ever contain non-recyclable plastics, polythene, some packaging, kitchen waste and a sprinkling of dust. However, take a look at your street on bin day, and you’ll see other items poking out from under the lid. Vacuum cleaners don’t usually fit in a 140 litre bin, which could explain why we see them on the pavement, from time to time. The local amenity tip is an option for the responsible owner when looking for a place to offload items, but if you don’t own a car, the whole process can be a bit of a chore.

Obviously, there’s more to it and these are only three examples of drivers that can influence what happens to an item, after it’s become useful or has broken. However, there is hope. Repair Cafés have become very popular across the world, and we’re

very lucky to have at least two well-run (Repair Cafés) in the Adur and Worthing area. I believe that the BBC’s very popular The Repair Shop is changing attitudes too, and its theme of keeping things longer with repair and restoration is a winning formula. Indeed, my own waiting list for repairs grows longer by the day. The French Government recently implemented a scheme to appraise repairability on items sold there, and it was revealed recently that the UK Government plans to do similar. I’m watching progress with a beady eye.

Inside the Real Repair Shop

3 The value of the item, which may have broken is now low and not worth repairing or the expected cost of repair outweighs the cost of replacement. This issue is as wide as it is long and could easily form the basis of a master’s degree. I simply can’t do this point justice here. What I can say here is that the value of a broken item, which might be repairable is often zero, many manufacturers don’t make enough effort to support products in-life and there are limited repair and knowledge opportunities for people locally.

3 An abandoned, seemingly OK 4 slice toaster.

If you’ve been following my articles in Inside Magazine or online at, you’ll know that I advocate keeping things for longer, with good maintenance and the odd dose of repair. It’s usually kinder to our environment, our wallets and helps slow the march of discarded items going to landfill, which is better for us all. What’s the strangest item that you’ve seen abandoned?

Inside Volunteering

Supercharge your self-worth Carole Claridge Volunteering Adviser

This month we are talking about the benefits of volunteering for those who are out of work. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on jobs and unemployment is at its highest level for some years. Young people have been particularly hard hit as they struggle to find opportunities to gain experience. Volunteering offers many benefits to people out of work – skills, experience, contacts and perhaps most important of all, a big boost to your self-esteem. If you are willing to make a commitment to a local charity or community group, they will help you make the most of your volunteering experience. I am Carole Claridge, the Volunteering Adviser for Worthing & Adur and a volunteer myself. If you would like to know more about volunteering, get in touch. I would love to help you get started.

Read on for some thoughts on how you can benefit from volunteering and check out the current volunteer vacancies on our website. We have shared a few suggestions at the end of this article. Develop your knowledge, skills and attitude Volunteering is a great way to learn a range of skills. Being part of a team develops active listening and communication, being organised, taking responsibility, showing initiative, problem-solving and showing support and respect for others. If you have a track record in your career, volunteering can offer more specific experience such as project management skills, leading a team or marketing. There are many volunteering opportunities including mentoring, tutoring, fundraising, planning and promoting events, IT and backoffice support.

Clare, who completed her politics and international relations degree in 2020 and volunteers at Citizens Advice West Sussex, is gaining valuable skills. She said, “There are so many different roles that I didn’t realise existed. My knowledge of analysing data has grown enormously and connects with my current studies in Business Economics MSc.” Boost your CV Volunteering can add an extra dimension to your CV and get you noticed. Employers will be impressed by your initiative and dedication to the community. Many companies are committed to social responsibility and volunteering shows you have similar values. Volunteer experience is professional experience, so use your role on your CV. Include your responsibilities, accomplishments, results and awards, as you would for any other job.

Community Works is a charity connecting community organisations, people and businesses to build a better community for everyone. Every year, our Volunteer Centre helps hundreds of local people find a rewarding volunteer role.

20 01903 357003

Supercharge your self-worth Volunteering can bring a sense of purpose to your search for paid work. While you are helping others, you could meet people who share similar interests. New people, new perspectives, new experiences – it all leads to an increase in self-worth. It will also give you stories to tell at job interviews about your resilience and character.

Inside Volunteering

Will it lead to a job? If your goal is to work in the voluntary or charity sector, then volunteering is the most recognisable way to gain relevant experience. While there are no guarantees of landing paid employment, being in your area of interest will increase the possibility of it happening. If a job comes up, you’ll know about it.

Inside Community


Learn… Discover… Superstar Arts is a registered charity based in Worthing providing meaningful, creative and educational projects for adults with learning disabilities. We deliver from West Worthing Baptist Church on South Street in Tarring, but we’re excited to be opening our own charity shop on South Street on the 1st May (COVID restrictions permitting), in place of The Worthing Cat Welfare Trust charity shop. This is a brilliant opportunity for Superstar Arts to provide work experience opportunities for our participants. Our artists will be supported to stock and organise the shop, interact with customers, use the till/handle money and we will also be developing the garden area to grow plants and herbs to sell. We have a shop on our website where we sell handmade products designed and created by our Superstar Artists! Please do take a look! Our online shop is set up to enable our artists to process online orders and post them out to our customers – all around the world! The charity shop will allow us to expand this activity – so our artists can sell their work in a live

setting, meeting customers and engaging in the local community. Our artists make their own greetings cards, t-shirts, tote bags, tea towels and notebooks (plus we also have our very popular rainbow pompom wreaths and ‘Sac Magique’ bag design available!). We’re really looking forward to becoming part of what Tarring’s retail options have to offer – we would love to become a go-to for small gifts, while

continuing to operate as a charity shop which will help provide a much needed income for our Superstar Arts. We currently have a local Crowdfunder, supported by WSCC, for this project running at superstararts – If you can, please do make a pledge, however small, to help us hit our target! Please pop in and say hello when we open!

A Boulder falls into the English Channel from MY Esperanza

Greenpeace Arun & Adur Group demand bottom trawler ban, as Greenpeace builds new underwater boulder barrier off the coast near Worthing In February, activists on the Greenpeace ship Esperanza began building a new underwater boulder barrier in the Offshore Brighton marine protected area in the English Channel, one of the UK’s most heavily bottom trawled protected areas. This follows Greenpeace’s Dogger Bank boulder barrier and will close 55 square nautical miles of Offshore Brighton, one fifth of its total area, to destructive bottom trawling. Celebrities including Thandie Newton, Hugh FearnleyWhittingstall, Paloma Faith, Bella Ramsey, Mark Rylance, Jarvis Cocker and Ranulph Fiennes have signed their names to boulders. In response to Greenpeace’s Dogger Bank boulder barrier, the UK government announced new bylaws which would totally close the Dogger Bank and South Dorset protected areas, and partially close

Bottom trawlers spent 3,099 hours fishing in Offshore Brighton in 2019. Offshore Brighton was established in 2016 to protect its seabed habitat, which is being destroyed by bottom trawling. According to the government, Offshore Brighton is “unlikely to be moving towards conservation objectives”. two other protected areas, to bottom trawling. This piecemeal approach would still leave 97% of UK offshore protected areas, 74 out of 76, fully or partially open to bottom trawling. Laurence from the Arun and Adur Local Greenpeace Group, said: “I’m really shocked and disappointed to discover that although the Government has closed some protected areas to industrial fishing, this Marine Protected Area off the Sussex coast can still be legally exploited by destructive industrial fishing boats. That’s why I have been out on the beach by Worthing Pier calling for bottom trawlers to be banned from fishing in all of the UK’s Marine Protected Areas. Please support our call to end industrial fishing in MPAs, by signing our petition”

Greenpeace is calling on the government to ban bottom trawlers and supertrawlers from fishing in all of the UK’s marine protected areas. Last year, 84 MPs from across Parliament, and 29 Conservative MPs, signed a Greenpeace-coordinated open letter, calling on the Secretary of State George Eustice to ban destructive industrial fishing from UK marine protected areas. The government taking steps to restrict bottom trawling in a handful of protected areas demonstrates some political will, following Brexit, to properly protect the UK’s offshore waters. This was previously difficult because introducing restrictions on fishing operations in offshore UK waters required agreement from other EU member states.

“The government’s move to properly protect just two of the UK’s protected areas barely touches the tip of the iceberg in terms of what is needed to save our oceans. All of the UK’s protected areas need real protection, not just a handful. This government is supposed to be showing global leadership on ocean conservation and fighting for 30% of the world’s oceans to be protected, but it can’t even properly protect 30% of our own waters. “The move to stop bottom trawling in the Dogger Bank proves the UK government can stop destructive industrial fishing if it wants to. The government must show more ambition in a year when it is supposed to display global leadership on solving the climate and nature emergencies. It must urgently ban destructive industrial fishing from all of the UK’s protected areas at sea by restricting fishing vessel licenses.”

“I’m proud to have had the chance to put my name on one of these boulders, and to be there today to bear witness to the creation of this boulder barrier. This action will play a small but significant role – and far more than our Government has so far done – to actually protect Offshore Brighton in a pragmatic and effective way. However, this shouldn’t be necessary. Our fervent hope is that our government will now turn words into action, papers parks into real conservation, and properly protects our oceans”. Most of the UK’s protected areas in offshore waters were established to protect the seabed. Currently, there are no full bottom trawling bans in any of the UK’s offshore protected areas. Data released by Oceana last year revealed that 97% of the UK’s offshore marine protected areas are being bottom trawled.

agency, BioLaGu, to conduct a Natura 2000 Environmental Impact Assessment to determine the impact of this activity. The assessment concluded the activity would not have a significant impact on the protected features of Offshore Brighton. Greenpeace’s activity will prevent bottom trawling in part of the Offshore Brighton protected area. Vessels which fish here will still be able to operate elsewhere. It is scientifically proven that fully or highly protected marine areas lead to significant spillover benefits for the wider marine ecosystem, helping safeguard and boost fish stocks both within and outside the protected area. A network of fully or highly protected marine areas would help UK fishing communities by ensuring there are healthy oceans, full of fish, for generations to come. live-greenpeace-bouldersbrighton-fishing/ Inside Magazines would like to thank Greenpeace and Suzanne Plunkett for the use of these images

“Offshore Brighton is the perfect monument to our government’s failure to protect our seas. It exists specifically to protect the seabed, but bottom trawlers spend thousands of hours each year ploughing this sensitive habitat.
