Where’s Gary the Gull Thank you for your entries for January. The postman was kept busy with a large number of postal entries! The winner was Christine Allen, Congratulations!

Inside Welcome

I am Liana, creator and editor of the Inside family of magazines covering Broadwater, Tarring, Durrington, East Worthing and West Worthing.

Welcome to the February issue of Inside Tarring. I don’t think anyone felt at New Year that this year would continue with such uncertainty. The good news is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and as Bryan Turner says in his piece, we need to start looking at the post-Covid world. In the meantime, we need to keep ourselves fit both physically and mentally, and look after our communities. We need to look out for those who have suffered loss, and acknowledge those who are going the extra mile. Teaching staff are facing extreme pressures at the moment in an ever changing scenario… so if you are working in education at the moment, we appreciate you!

There is a slight change this month. Instead of winning a cash prize (usually one prize across all 5 editions), there is a chance for 2 winners with each magazine! There are 2 chances for Inside Tarring readers to win a copy of Arundel – A Postman’s View. This is a personal view of Arundel including maps and images by longstanding resident, Postman and Walking Tours Guide Martin Alderton. Copies are available by emailing Entries are welcomed by post and email. If you find, and describe all of Gary’s hiding places, you have a chance of being pulled out of my hat!

There’s a lot to read this month, go grab yourself your favourite hot drink, get cozy and have an enjoyable read!

Closing date for entry is 10th February. Good Luck!

Inside Gardening

Pruning, deadheading,

seeding and chitting…

We say it very quietly at this time of year, but Spring really is just around the corner. By February, your garden should be starting to come to life – bulbs sprouting (although of course with the very mild weather before Christmas lots of brave bulbs put on head starts), birds beginning to think about nesting, insects moving about and everything waking up as the days get a little longer. There are some specific jobs that are usually done at this time of year. Hardy Fuschias can be pruned or cut right back now. They can be cut right to the ground if they have become too full of dead wood or have just got too big and unruly, or they can just be shaped to suit. Last summer Fuschia gall mite was particularly prevalent. This causes the ends of the plants to become distorted; it does not kill the plant but looks very unattractive and will mean leaves and flowers drop sooner than usual. To avoid this recurring this year, cut the Fuschia back hard and clear up every trace of leaf and flower on the soil around the plant and dispose of them either in a waste sack or by burning – do not put any of the cuttings or dead leaves in your compost as this will just help to spread the mite. Hopefully the Fuschia will grow back mite free this coming summer.

Some vegetables and hardy annuals can be seeded now under cover but make sure they are kept at a reasonably consistent temperature and are not left to completely dry out (easily done when you are warm in the house and the greenhouse is at the bottom of a frozen garden). Don’t forget to start chitting your potatoes now. Any perennial growth left from last year can also be cleared and cut back to allow space for new growth! And as you tidy your borders and see the new shoots appearing you can look forward to the colour and variety that will begin to appear as spring takes hold.

It is also a good time to deadhead/prune Hydrangeas, Ceratostigma and Deciduous Ceanothus. If the spring has come early and the weather is mild, Roses can also be pruned although they can wait until early March.

Hi, I’m Paul Blackmoore and I’m the sole Director of Thy Will Be Done. I’m currently working from home during the lockdown with my 2 little helpers, Benny and Frankie who are both rescue French Bulldogs. My main areas of expertise are; Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Prepaid Funeral plans and Probate. It has always been my mission to bring to everyday folk the same protection opportunities that the rich and famous have had for generations. I achieve this as follows: 1. All of my advice is free at all times – you only pay when you engage me to work for you. 2. I offer exceptional value for money – Wills from £49.99 - 2 Lasting Powers of Attorney with an advance directive including vat and all Office of the Public Guardian fees just £545 - Pre-paid funeral plans from just £9 per week – Trusts from just £199 and I conduct probate for just 1.75% of the estate value plus vat. 3. I am 100% transparent with my pricing and how I work at all times. Many people are concerned about: 1. Living with partners but not being married. 2. Having to use their homes to pay for care fees in the future. 3. How much their families may need to pay in probate and inheritance tax fees. 4. Protecting their children if they leave everything to a spouse and the spouse then remarries after their death. 5. How to ensure their children will not lose half of their inheritance if they divorced after inheriting. 6. How to protect grandchildren or vulnerable beneficiaries. I am able to deliver solutions that are 100% legally effective in overcoming all of these problems and many more besides. To help with fees I am also able to offer guaranteed interest free credit without the need for any credit checks to make protecting your family more affordable.

We need to plan for

Health after Covid Fitness and Health Recovery after Covid-19 Understandably, with so much effort going into managing the current Covid19 situation, there has been little commentary on how we will, as a society, get back to the level of Public Health that we knew 12 months ago. However, one of the most thoughtful comments made at a recent HASC meeting at West Sussex County Council was that sport needs to be prioritised and that Local Authorities need to plan now to take a leading role in creating communities that are physically active. Councils are uniquely positioned to promote good health through sport and other activities, owning many facilities such as leisure centres, pools and parks, and the expertise to put them to good use. In Worthing we have the successful Southdowns Leisure Trust, a charitable spin-off from the Council’s provision.

Adur and Worthing Wellbeing is delivered by our local Council, funded by West Sussex Public Health. The aim is to reduce health inequalities, through encouraging physical activity, weight management, and reducing smoking and alcohol. • 12 Adult Weight Management courses are delivered each year, some designed specifically to appeal to men with around 70% success. • 30 free Pre-Diabetes courses are delivered each year, reaching around 600 people referred by their GPs. Successful lifestyle changes can avoid or delay the onset of type-2 diabetes; significantly improving health outcomes. • Physical Activity is promoted by taster sessions, giving inactive people a chance to try low level exercise, and encouraged to make exercise part of their ongoing lifestyle routine. 100% have reported to have increased their activity levels. Activities include Couch to 5K, Introduction to Circuit Training, Pilates and Boxing.

• A new Advisor for Alcohol has recently been appointed to work with participants from early 2021. The Covid-19 lockdown has been a stressful time for most of us giving more reasons and opportunities for drinking than we normally have. • Cookery Courses supporting people to be able to prepare meals at low cost with affordable and healthy ingredients • Falls Prevention courses to help people build strength and confidence to prevent a fall. As we move through 2021, and Covid-19 recedes, our Council needs to build on their current work and form partnerships with other community organisations to make physical activity and other healthy endeavours more mainstream and inclusive. If they do then we can make rapid progress towards a healthy society which is more resilient to the challenges we face. To contact Adur and Worthing Wellbeing, call 01903 221450

Helping you to restore

balance to your body Nic Naish

Here we are again with another lockdown, but this time in the depths of Winter. All those New Year intentions may be very hard to adhere to whilst all this is going on. Putting on a few pounds over winter is not that big a deal but eating food that lowers our immunity is!

I checked in on Liana, our lovely editor, to see how she was doing – and the answer was ‘brilliantly’. Since the consultation and understanding her DNA results, she has totally embraced her new way of eating, or LIVING really. She has found the whole process of giving her body what it needs nutritionally and physically both straightforward and cost effective – and so it should be! Although an initial outlay for the DNA test of £230 (includes the swab, the lab work and the 90 minute consultation with me explaining the results) may take some finding for some people, from that point on it can in fact save you money. Test results provide me with a wealth of information that enable me to restore balance to your body.

Imagine having the confidence to follow a regime knowing that every purchase, every mouthful is replenishing and healing your body. No unnecessary supplements only the ones you genuinely need; no expensive trendy products that can only be bought online. Simply – balanced meals that can be modified for the whole household if needed. Once clients have had their consultation, they are equipped to go shopping knowing exactly what foods to buy more of, which to cut back on and those to avoid – and importantly, why! Initially, it may mean taking time checking your shopping list and reading labels, but it isn’t long before you can whizz around a supermarket because you only need a few of the aisles. Shopping can become not only cheaper, but quicker too! Then the magical love affair starts with good quality natural ingredients. Even clients with the sweetest of tooth become ‘whole food’ connoisseurs! Non-cooks start dabbling with their simple ingredients and many discover their local deli, health food shop

10 01903 357003

or international food store to be a much happier shopping experience than a supermarket.

Knowledge is indeed Power! As the body is given the nutrition it scientifically needs, my clients typically experience a monumental shift in their energy levels. Inflammation drops and their body weight stabilises. Liana looks amazing – I’ll leave it to her to tell you how she feels! If you get stuck, call me! Whether you want a DNA test, a consultation or to look round my new studio… give me a call. 07780 546343 @bandanahealthandfitness

January 2021

Over the last few weeks I have detailed my journey and experience. Although there is an initial financial outlay with the DNA test and some support for a few weeks, if the changes are as impactful as I have found them, the need for support drops off, along with the cost. Over Christmas I naturally didn’t feel like overindulging, I gained 2-3 lbs, but that has now shifted again. Joint pains have significantly reduced and my energy levels have risen sharply. Another incredible change has been seeing the difference in my face from a photo 8 years ago when I was at least 1 stone lighter than I am now. Changes I have made to my diet have reduced inflammation. My face is much less puffy (I didn’t even realise it was!) and I really think I look healthier. I am leaving you with a cringy photo of me in September, another very recent one and then another from 8 years ago.

Tarring Rainwater Gardens

in Action

The Tarring Flood Action Group – sincerely thank residents of Tarring for their patience and support whilst we have been digging up the grass verges and working on the triangle of open space opposite Thomas a Becket (TAB) Junior School! There is a method in our plan – an even more attractive environment for all of us to share and enjoy. It is an ongoing project, and we would welcome input and volunteers to help maintain the open space. “Looking forward to helping in the rain garden. Hope we can create a little oasis at the top of the High Street”, says Janet from the High Street. We would like to thank Skinner’s Landscapes did a superb job of the “hard graft”. We owe a real debt of gratitude to our neighbours; Thomas a Becket School’s Headteacher John Gadd and staff and Worthing Borough Council. Our sponsors Operation Watershed at West Sussex County Council funded and supported us all the way; City Fibre; Worthing Community Chest; Isabel Spavins; Stuart Miles and several others in pipeline too… our thanks to you all.

A passer-by commented “It looks good and feels like a proper village again”. In addition to our rainwater gardens, three raised beds on the green space have been designed to absorb excess water and will involve residents and children alike. ”The children like walking around the beds and having fun exercise. They are very excited about the plantings and can’t wait to see it in bloom – how do rainwater gardens work?” Laura To answer that question Graeme explains, “The excess water that can’t get down our Victorian drains quickly enough overflows into huge soakaways under the planted beds, then the thirsty plants drink the water. Magic”. The triangular raised bed is designed to be the flag ship for beautiful and unusual but water loving plants, the rectangular is for herbs and plants that are donated by the public for the public, and finally the smaller square raised bed nearest to the High Street is intended for children’s involvement and we look forward to hearing their ideas via the school and play group.

12 01903 357003

We have planted over 150 bulbs in the triangle and we look forward to seeing the results in the next few months. “Wonderful example of spontaneous community combustion. Thank you. Privilege to live here”, says Anthony. The new chat benches have been very kindly donated by City Fibre and have been well received. Residents have commented on the scheme; “Thanks for the bus stop benches, very helpful“ says Claire of Tarring. “Love the idea of the chat bench and look forward to when we can use them” said a neighbour. We plan to have a Spring Makeover with even more planting and a launch of the rainwater gardens soon. “Looking forward Spring and Tarring in Bloom” says Sheelagh. “Watch this space”. Hope to see you there when we are allowed out of our homes again! Cllr Hazel Thorpe on behalf of the Tarring Flood Action Group 07999 444 753  01903 357003

Food and Love…

A match made in heaven?

With St Valentine’s Day (that annual celebration of love) fast approaching, we thought we’d look at the connections between love and food.

have long been associated with love, and hence, Valentine’s. They are also the symbol of Venus, so if you’re deferring your pronouncement of love until June, then strawberries are the way to go.

Some herbs are said to represent love and fertility. Basil was often worn to indicate that a woman was single; rosemary was found in bouquets in the Middle Ages and lavender is said to be an aphrodisiac!

Bees are traditionally a symbol of love because of the sweetness of honey (and the bitterness of their sting). The warm feelings you get from a glass of wine have long been compared to the euphoria of love.

Strawberries are sadly out of season in February, but as they’re heart-shaped and sweet, they

Although it’s the most popular food now, Chocolates came late to the Valentine’s party.

They became a common gift during the 1800s. Victorians practised a romanticised version of medieval chivalry and courtly love. Richard Cadbury the chocolatier (yes, that Cadbury), not only developed a recipe for a creamier chocolate, but also dreamed up the special heartshaped boxes now associated with St Valentine’s Day. So if you find a home delivery menu that features of these flavours, then you’ll be in luck this February!  01903 357003


Inside Arts Regular advertiser in our Broadwater edition, Luke Henley told me last summer that he had a creative urge and that he needed to do something about. He spoke about a workshop in the garden. Little did I know what he really meant! If any of you managed to get down to Lancing seafront over the Christmas period, you might have seen Luke on a ladder. You may have taken your photo with him, or even held his ladder for him Having visited The Perch, and seen the queues at the coffee kiosk, Luke decided that the wall at the back of Setyres could do with cheering up. He spent 3 days and 2 hours painting a pop art style mural. You can see by the photo how large the mural is, as Luke looks a bit like an ant in comparison! Luke has also contributed to the artwork on the hoardings at Teville Gate, and has completed other projects in Brighton and Lewes. The press and media coverage of his work has led to several enquiries for

more murals, which he is very excited about. To see more of Luke’s art and to contact him, see his Instagram account @iamwooze I asked Luke what Wooze meant. Wooze was Luke’s Mum’s nickname. Luke sadly lost his Mum to breast cancer, taken away too soon, so this is an homage to Luke’s Mum. PS Luke and Horace have teamed up… so watch this space!

Inside Volunteering

Accountants your charity needs you Carole Claridge Volunteering Adviser Thank you! Hello and welcome back to Inside Volunteering. Firstly, thanks a million to everyone who got in touch to offer their help and to all of you volunteering your time and talents to help our community through these difficult times. So many people are getting involved, in so many different ways. Your kindness and generosity make all the difference. I’m Carole Claridge, the Volunteering Adviser for Worthing & Adur and a volunteer myself. If you’d like to know more about volunteering in your local community, get in touch. I’d love to help you get started.

Apron Creative A community arts and crafts initiative in Shoreham offering intergenerational arts and crafts workshops and cultural heritage events. Broadwater Community Association Runs the Parish Rooms in Broadwater Street West – the hub of village life. Freedom Powerchairs Designs, maintains, repairs, services and hires out mobility aids from a workshop in Worthing. Men Walk Talk Aims to improve men’s mental and physical health by getting them involved in a local walking group. Sussex Clubs for Young People Offers vibrant, inclusive and empowering youth clubs and activities. Together in Sussex Brings churches and communities together to provide practical help to vulnerable people. Breathing Spaces Engaging people with gardens and plants to improve their wellbeing.

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. Calling all bookkeepers and accountants! This month we’re keen to hear from those of you with finance experience. Have you ever thought about volunteering as a Treasurer for a local charity or community group? Every local charity and community group needs a Treasurer to take care of their funds. If you’ve got bookkeeping or accountancy experience, it’s a fantastic way to make a difference in your local community. And you don’t need to be fully qualified – small groups, with modest funds, have simple finances. Acting as a charity Treasurer can be valuable experience for those working towards qualifications and looking to progress their finance career. And if you’re retired, it’s a great way to stay connected and meet new people.

Every group will have different needs depending on their size and how they raise funds. Volunteer Treasurers in very small charities are hands-on doing the books, while in larger charities their role is about overseeing the financial processes and advising the committee on financial matters. Typically, Treasurers volunteer about 8-10 hours a month of their time – including attending committee meetings. And there’s plenty of flexibility to enable you to fit the role around your other commitments. There’s lots to choose from Many local charities and community groups are looking for a new volunteer Treasurer right now – so there’s sure to be a role to fit your interests and experience. Here are a few examples to illustrate the variety on offer.

Sam’s experience as a volunteer Treasurer Sam Singleton is a volunteer treasurer for Home-Start Arun, Worthing and Adur – a local charity that offers parents the support they need to give their child the best start in life. As an employee of the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity, Sam is experienced in charity work. However, he felt that volunteering for another organisation would teach him new skills and assist with his professional development.

boosted my confidence. It’s an environment in which I can share my knowledge and witness a positive effect, which in turn gives me the confidence that I am good at what I do.”

As a treasurer he studies operational reports and offers advice to the charity’s staff and board, which could be related to funding, improving services, future opportunities, or risk planning. At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic a budget meeting involving Sam brought about swift changes to fundraising priorities, which has resulted in Home-Start Arun, Worthing and Adur being in a much stronger financial position.

For younger people considering a Treasurer role Sam offers the following advice: “Not many people my age (32) would even consider being a Treasurer. However, just because you lack the perceived experience of an elder, you have a viewpoint and a lived experience that means you can contribute something different, that will improve the quality of any Board. That should give you the confidence that your opinion is valid.”

Sowing the

seeds of… Dr Barbara Pilley Shaw

Inside Wild February we think about sowing and growing, and maybe swapping, saved SEEDS! Plants are a fundamental part of our diet and that of animals we eat, and vital for survival. We eat seeds directly as energy–rich grains – oats, wheat maize and rice, or protein-rich leguminous pulses – chickpeas, soybeans, peanuts and lentils. Some seeds are retained for future sowings along with those from plants whose seeds we don’t eat but whose flesh we do – tomatoes, peppers, leeks, onions, carrots, broccoli, parsley. Feeding us all must continue whether crops are grown on vast prairies and in industrial polytunnels, or in gardens and allotments. The impact of Climate Change floods and droughts has reduced yields of staple crops. We mobilise, local to global, to collect and store seeds in banks, vaults or

libraries as insurance against species extinction and loss of vital biodiversity that provides us with future food, medicines and climate protection. Despite a horticultural heritage, Adur and Worthing is not well endowed with growers that supply food locally, although there are nurseries in Angmering, Ferring, Roundstone and Findon, and farms on Sompting Estate. Worthing’s Seed Swap, Sow, and Grow, a Spring Fair event

mediated by Transition Worthing, began in 2010 in The Bishop’s Palace in Tarring before moving to Oak Grove Special College in 2012. Here conference facilities and greenspace enabled presentations and showcasing of horticultural and sustainability projects – seed swap, rain water gardens, EcoOpen Houses, energy and repair shops, local transport, plus anyone with an interest in gardening could join Worthing Allotment & Gardens Association.

They do make them

like they used to

(you just have to know where to look)

Happy new year! Did Santa bring you lots of shiny new appliances and is your bin now full to overflowing? Did you throw anything away that could have been fixed or regifted? It’s been a busy few weeks in the workshop, and I’ve spent time pondering this over a cuppa or two and here are my deliberations.

Me, repairing a Christmas moose’s antler, as one does.

A Russell Hobbs advert from back in the day

Think back 30 years, and if you can’t, ask anyone over the age of 42. In the place you grew up, how old was the kettle? It might seem a strange question, but as a (slightly odd) child, I noticed stuff like that. I can fondly remember my parents’ own Russell Hobbs K2 kettle, which had been given to them as a wedding gift and was still going strong after they divorced, 25 years later. Unlike their marriage, the kettle was well engineered, robust and easy to mend. Not long ago, long service was expected from appliances and my friends and relatives had similar experiences. Trust me, I’ve asked them. Buying spare parts was also a thing. You could easily repair kettles of that vintage with basic tools and without the need of a yet-to-be-invented online video. Hardware shops would stock cost-effective spare parts like elements and rubber seals to keep your kettle running for longer, but over time, this type of thing has become the reserve of nerds like myself.

During the last 40 years, the market for small appliances such as vacuum cleaners, toasters, kettles and much more has become congested with laughably cheap goods, and while the prices can make items accessible, it’s usually a case of ‘buy cheap, buy twice’. Manufacturers have perfected built-in obsolescence to such a degree that they can time your product to fail, just after the warranty expires. Bad for many reasons, but the main thing is that a £15 toaster thrown out after two years will probably end up as landfill. There are free, environmentally kinder disposal routes available from your local council. It’s still possible to buy something well-designed and robust that will be supported by a responsible manufacturer, you just need to know what to look for;

Do you really need it? Just because your friend has a kettle with an interactive disco display controlled by their iPhone, do you need one? Probably not. No one does. Google ‘the best kettle’ and you’ll find products that have more knobs and whistles than a power station. This makes them more complicated and likely to go wrong in the future. They contain more precious metals, increasing their environmental impact. Remember what you need the product to do. Keep it simple.

Can I get help when I need it? Many retailers and manufacturers are not set up to take care of your product. At the end of your twelve-month warranty, is there a local agent or are there spares available to fix your product, when you need it? Before making a purchase, do some online research on your chosen toaster manufacturer. Do they have a help desk, can they supply reasonably priced parts, are there engineers out there who can help repair your item?

How long will it last, will it be any good? This is a tricky one to quantify as lots of things affect that. But ask yourself, is a kettle costing a tenner going to be a family heirloom to hand-down? Probably not. It will boil water, it will make a lot of noise, it will be inefficient. Take customer reviews with a pinch of salt. Trust organisations such as ‘Which’ to guide you on matters of performance and longevity before handing over your hard-earned wedge.

Give yourself time to work this stuff out, and you’ll end up replacing your appliance less often. Better still, you’ll be able to fix it when it goes wrong, saving it from becoming waste. You’ll also be able to pass it on when the time comes, which is a far better thing to do. If buying new isn’t an option, don’t be afraid to buy quality appliances secondhand from places like eBay, Facebook and Gumtree. It might not come in a new box with a receipt, but it’ll still be decent, without costing the earth.

Just because your friend has a kettle with an interactive disco display controlled by their iPhone, do you need one?

Bugcycle Community Garden

In 2015 Creative Waves planted a spectacular living Willow Dome in Beach House Park as part of their new project “Bugcycle Community Garden”. Over the past 5 years the garden has evolved, and the space has been transformed into a creative, educational, sensory garden. This was all created with the help of community groups, schools, students and volunteers, who have attended free workshops to create unusual planters, seating and artwork all from recycled materials. The new habitat includes flowers, vegetables, trees, herbs, attracts local wildlife and insects. More information about the Bugcycle garden can be found on our website:

Creative Waves have now secured funding from Pocket Parks to transform the lifeless tarmac area and link the surrounding spaces together to update the garden with new seating and planters. When lockdown restrictions ease, we are looking for volunteers to be part of this project. Whether you would like to do the odd bit of gardening, carpentry, painting or watering. Meet new friends or perhaps you are group that are interested in looking after a planter or you have an interest in growing food? Do you have any plants/ bulbs or seeds that you would like to donate? Would you like to become more involved and volunteer in the new ‘Friends of Bugcycle’ group that we will set up?

Creative funding is looking to the future “I predict an explosion of creativity in the arts and business sectors when the pent up energy held back by the pandemic is released – a cultural and economic renaissance.” These are the words of Karen Simporis, Chair of Adur and Worthing Trust whose gaze is set firmly beyond lockdown and towards the wonderful, creative and life-affirming things that we are all looking forward to doing again. Adur & Worthing Trust is the local charity behind Colonnade House and the successful partnership with Worthing Borough Council that has brought this creative hub to life. An important part of their work as a charity is to help get ideas and new creative businesses off the ground, and that’s where the Creative Commissions come in. Running for the fourth time, the Creative Commissions was launched on Thursday 14 January offering grants of between £300 and £700 to local creatives in Adur and Worthing who want to get a project off the ground. Karen says, “We’re looking for new work that flags up the vibrant creative community we live in and we’ve made it a simple process.”

Last year the scheme had to be pulled due to Covid-19, and so this year it is back bigger and better and the trustees are looking forward to getting proposals for projects from across all areas of the arts. More information about Creative Commissions can be found on the Colonnade House website: https:// creative-commissions-2021/ As the exciting plans for the expansion of Colonnade House into a creative digital hub will soon be submitted for planning permission the Trust are also looking ahead to their continued role in the development and management of the hub. With that in mind, the Trust are actively looking for new trustees with experience, expertise and interest in one or more of the following areas: Fundraising, Project development, Strategic thinking, Education for all ages and levels, Digital innovation and economy, Policy analysis, Marketing, Financial planning and analysis, Legal, and all areas of the arts and heritage.

For an informal discussion or expressions of interest please contact: About the Trust Adur & Worthing Trust was formed in 2015 and is a registered charity and Company Limited by Guarantee. The Trust aims to stimulate the economy, employment, regeneration and infrastructure in the local creative and digital sector both physically and virtually. It actively supports Adur & Worthing Councils strategy A Commitment to Culture by encouraging inclusive cultural activities, expanding opportunities to participate in the arts and raising the profile and reputation of Adur and Worthing for cultural excellence and innovation.  01903 357003
