Inside Welcome

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

Welcome to May! The Rainwater Gardens that Tarring Flood Action Group have been working on are taking shape nicely, you can see them on p8. This month we have a feature on an initiative from West Sussex Mind. The centre spread is a pull-out kite that forms part of their Moving Minds Campaign. The focus of the campaign is to think and talk about moving from the confines of lockdown back into the community and community buildings. The first step for many is to build confidence to leave the house, to go outside and be around other people and feel okay. A kite as a symbol crosses all cultures and diversities. We are hoping that you will all pull your kite out and put it up in your window to show solidarity with your community. Grab yourself a coffee (or favourite drink) and have a good read. You can join Inside Magazines on social media @InsideMagazines @InsideCommunityMagazines #insidemagazines.

The best halloumi bites in town

Have you sampled the cheesy delights of Halloumilicious yet? Found at 5 Warwick Lane in the centre of Worthing (BN11 3DP), Halloumilicious is looking forward to the Covid restrictions lifting. Owner Joel Ariaman was born in Brighton and moved to Worthing in 2016.

An idea sparked soon after his move to Worthing to offer something different and to have a whole menu dedicated to Halloumi... a semi-hard unripened cheese made from goat’s and sheep’s milk. 2017 saw the offer of Halloumi Fries to street food markets, festivals and pop ups at local cafés, restaurants and pubs. Then the first street kitchen was opened in October 2019 in Warwick Lane, serving Halloumi Fries, Halloumi Wraps, Halloumi Bagels and Burgers. They also have our their very own Gelato – Halloumi, Pistachio & Bakalava! Halloumi is a popular meat alternative for BBQs, however, a lot of Halloumilicious customers are meat eaters who want something a little different as a lunch or dinner option. Joel says, “We have been very well received in Worthing and are grateful for all our customers. We have been open during lockdown offering takeaway and gave 100 items on our menu to NHS Worthing.” New for the summer are seating booths outside the street kitchen with heaters.

Opening times Tuesday – Friday 12:00-3:00pm/ 5:00-8:00pm, Saturday 12:00-8:00pm (check their social media for summer opening times).

Orders can be made using Just-eat, Deliveroo and Uber Eats and customers have the option to collect their orders themselves. Find and follow Halloumiliscious on Instagram and Facebook @halloumilicious

Raised bed


When we planted the raised beds on Good Friday we included a miniature Rose in memory of one of our well known and wellloved neighbours, Brenda McCurdie, who was a Church Warden and Lay Preacher at St Andrews Church and an active neighbour in our community. The three flower beds have different themes – a triangular one for decorative plants, and rectangular one for complementary planting and smaller square one for our children using bright colours and sensory plants. We will be adding some herbs next month when they are ready. Our sincere thanks go to Ferring Nurseries who kindly sponsored us with majority of the plants. Over time we hope that residents will donate a plant to make it their own too. Everyone enjoyed their little bit of freedom and we all learned more about how to be a successful gardener with advice given to us by our local expert Dave. We celebrated Easter with chocolate eggs for the children who took an active part.

War Graves Week

comes to Worthing

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is running its first ever War Graves Week this year. Running from the 21-28 May 2021, the week will shine a light on our work and the people who keep remembrance of our war dead alive.

Through a series of talks, tours and events, both physical and virtual, War Graves Week will bring an immersive and inclusive programme that will reveal CWGC’s work and history in all its variety and demonstrate its ongoing relevance today. In Worthing on Friday 28th May, Sarah Nathaniel, the Public Engagement Coordinator for the South East, will be running tours at Broadwater & Worthing Cemetery throughout the day. Home to around 80 war graves and memorials from both world wars, there are some fascinating stories about the men and women commemorated there to be shared.

Student Life

The Vale School

Life Aboard the Mary Rose Our Year 2 children have been learning about Henry VIII’s ship The Mary Rose recently. One of the main focuses for their lessons was about what it was like to live and work aboard the great ship. The children took advantage of the lovely weather and went aboard the ‘ship’ in our Quiet Garden for their mixed English and History lesson. They learnt about the different jobs on board and acted them out between them. The Year 2 children have also been making ‘ships biscuits’ – these weren’t as popular as you may think as they are very hard and not very tasty, due to the lack of ingredients available on board!

Artists invited to exhibit at the

Seafront Gallery in Worthing

Artists are being offered the opportunity to showcase their work to thousands of visitors to Worthing seafront as expressions of interest to exhibit at the spectacular Seafront Gallery are invited.

To give a boost to the local art industry as the country moves out of lockdown, Worthing Borough Council with support from the team at the creative hub Colonnade House, is offering the exhibition space with no hire fee throughout 2021. The outdoor gallery features five stone-filled gabion plinths and is situated a short walk west of Worthing Pier on the promenade - an area which attracts a high footfall throughout the year. It is an increasingly popular destination for residents and visitors to the seaside town with its wide range of pop-up food and drink traders and seasonal attractions. The art gallery was built last year to host the Photo Fringe Open Solo Award winner and shortlist of 19 contemporary, international photographers from the festival launch in October 2020. It is one of a number of outdoor art exhibition spaces in Worthing, which includes the Pier and two of the seafront shelters,

designed to make art accessible to everyone and safe to enjoy during the pandemic. Proposals are now invited for future exhibitions at The Seafront Gallery, which has 20 display surfaces across the five plinths and is accessible via a beachside path as well as the promenade. Hire periods will be for four to six months. Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Customer Services, Dr Heather Mercer said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer, for free, this fantastic gallery space, as a continuation of our efforts to support local businesses to bounce back from the impact of the COVID pandemic. “The Seafront Gallery has been a very much-welcomed and interesting addition to our seafront and offers a great opportunity to host public exhibitions and reach large numbers of people.”

Worthing’s Health Hub Construction on Worthing’s new multi-million pound integrated health hub will soon begin. Work on Worthing’s new, integrated health care facility in the heart of the town is set to begin this Summer. It will be the first of its type in Worthing and will deliver significant care benefits for the local community with GP, community, mental health and pharmacy services under one roof. The site, owned by Worthing Borough Council, has been considered as an under-utilised key brownfield development site. The development will enable integrated working between different NHS partners by significantly improving their

accommodation, which is dispersed throughout the town. The proposed development would bring together Coastal West Sussex CCG, Worthing Medical Group, Sussex Community Foundation Trust, and Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust services into one integrated health care facility in the heart of Worthing. Plans for an accompanying multi-storey car park have also been approved. It will be sixstoreys high – accommodating for 186 vehicles and 36 bicycles. A further 28 cycle bays will be made available as part of the WICC development. Construction on the project is expected to start in the Summer this year and finish in the Spring of 2023.

16 01903 357003

Despite the impacts the COVID pandemic has had on the progression of the care centre, considerable work has been undertaken on the project. A spokesman for Worthing Borough Council said: “We’re pleased to be working with partners on bringing forward the Worthing Integrated Care Centre and we’re confident work will begin this summer. “The facilities will improve the way residents receive care for many years to come – something we know will be very much welcomed by all.”

Sun Aware?

Lockdown restrictions are easing and bit by bit, jab by jab, we will soon be spending much more of our time outside. Here in West Sussex, which has a strong claim to be the sunniest part of the UK, we need to be aware of the damage that strong sunlight can do to skin that has been stuck inside for so long. Working as a Pharmacist, I have seen many patients come in with their skin bright red from sun burn to seek help, usually in the spring when they think that the sun is not strong enough to do any damage. Over-exposure can cause serious damage, including melanoma, which is a dangerous skin cancer. This is reason enough to look after your skin, stay in the shade and be safe in the sun.

Bryan Turner, Chairman of the Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee at West Sussex County Council.

Thousands of residents benefit from ‘Going Local’ scheme

Thousands of Adur & Worthing residents benefit from ‘Going Local’ scheme More than 2,300 residents of Adur and Worthing received help with their social, emotional and practical needs from Going Local – a social prescribing scheme – in 2020. The community referral scheme, which was launched in 2016, is delivered by Adur & Worthing Councils. It helps to improve the wellbeing of people with non-medical problems which might be impacting on their health. This includes supporting people with housing and financial issues or helping them to discover new interests. The numbers referred have more than doubled since the previous year, mainly due to more people needing help during the COVID pandemic. Previously run as a referral only service from GPs and other health professionals, residents can now refer themselves directly to the scheme. The social prescribers work with residents to identify the issues they need help with, signposting them to local partner organisations or relevant Council departments for support. In the past year, the team has helped people with financial worries, housing needs, loneliness and support with their mental health. For example, an elderly couple in poor health were being evicted from their rented accommodation. They were referred for housing support and

given help to access benefits. Another resident with serious health issues and depression was given help with financial issues that were contributing to his condition and signposted to MIND for mental health support. Responding to the COVID pandemic, the Going Local team established the Councils’ Community Response in March 2020 to meet the needs of residents. This included providing emergency food provision to hundreds of people in need. The team of six social prescribers work closely with all GP practices in Adur and Worthing to support the COVID vaccination effort. Looking ahead, a volunteer programme is being developed to enable the scheme to increase its support to the community. Adur District Council’s Executive Member for Health & Wellbeing,

Cllr Kevin Boram, said: “When there are things we feel anxious about, it can have a knock on effect on our physical and mental health. The Going Local scheme has allowed us to take a more holistic approach to supporting our communities, working with residents to tackle any underlying issues and prevent them from becoming more complex.” Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Health & Wellbeing, Cllr Val Turner, said: “The Going Local team has had to adapt rapidly in response to pandemic to meet the changing needs of the local community. Through social prescribing and by working in partnership with the primary care services and local organisations, we are able to address the impact of COVID on individuals’ lives.”

Moving Minds Campaign 2021 Moving Minds

Moving Minds together we rise ‘Open Minds’ is a project run by West Sussex Mind. It focuses on anti-stigma and mental health awareness raising in the community. As with all projects at West Sussex Mind, Open Minds is service-user led. We developed the ideas for the campaign, based on the insight and creativity of the champions involved. Mental Health Awareness Week is a high-profile national campaign. This year the theme is Nature and locally we want to use the theme to move back into our community, connect and find support for better mental health. We know that many people have been struggling with their mental health and many for the first time. We want to make sure that people know where to get support and moreover ensure that stigma does not prevent people from getting that support. Our campaign will launch on the 1 May and lead into Mental Health Awareness week 10-16 May but will continue until the 31 May with activities. We will be settling into Colonnade House Week Beginning the 17 May and will show our photographic stories of Champions from diverse communities all who have a personal story to share about their mental health recovery and journey. Portraits and words will raise awareness about mental health, and encourage people to seek support by describing how actions can really help both the individual and the community as a whole.

Every year we pick an activity to provoke conversations in an engaging way. This year our Moving Minds campaign hopes to capture movement not only in the physical sense but in the sense of a movement and a call to action. We want to use the idea of kites and kite flying to express this diversity and also as a display of unity. Kites are a wonderfully diverse and cultural art form – they are flown, displayed and celebrated in many different parts of the world for many different reasons. They are also a fun, engaging and a mindful activity. Kites can be a tool for transition out of our homes into open spaces. A kite can fail to fly many times due to the conditions but the joy of a moment of flight can be a wonderful reward and be so uplifting. We are using this metaphor and our message is Moving Minds Together We Rise.

Pull out your free poster and display it in your window to show that our local community is right behind those experiencing poor mental – show people they are not alone. Take a look at our website where there is lots of information, videos and free training to be better informed about mental health. Read Keira’s poem on page 22 and then ask yourself “what you will do for your own mental health and those you know”. Come along to Colonnade House in central Worthing during the Week of 17 May and see our Lego Robot RU OK x3, photographic exhibition and of course come and make and fly a kite.

Laying delicately on the grass, vulnerable to the eye,

Surrounded by beauty and nature, feeling the lows with the highs.

Splashes of bright colours, combined with layers of depth, Underneath the surface lies powerful feelings kept.

Struggling some days to lift from the ground,

Finding a listening ear to hear your spoken sound. Thoughts swirling around, overtaking one’s mind,

Seeking comfort in us is something you can find.

A welcoming community, with values of care and kindness, Believing a struggle shared can help make the struggle less. Strong feelings spiralling with gusts of wind and rain, Withholding the storm – new skills and resilience gained.

Awareness of looking after your Mental Health, Knowing self-care and positivity is truly that of wealth.

Understanding and knowledge of what you’re going through, Others relating to your journey and experiences too.

Awakening emotions of relief and feeling free, Realisation of living a life fulfilled and happily.

Within varied backgrounds and identities, Mental Health exists,

Acceptance and support – we whole-heartedly offer this. Mental Health leads to stories significant to our cause,

Individual and unique, we invite you to share yours.

Opening minds as you soar through the sky, Preconceptions and judgements – it’s time to say goodbye. As seasons do change, growth of mindset follows suit, Nurturing seeds daily to encourage grounded roots.

Wellbeing is the foundation of change, kindness and time, Now pause. to ask yourself…what inspires and moves your mind?! 22 01903 357003

Sourdough Sandwich Bar Following the feature last month in Inside Magazines about Sourdough Sandwich Bar, it has been noted that the location was omitted from the article. To turn a negative into a positive, we were inundated with calls and emails asking where to find it. Owner Gurol Ozkalafat reported that after only 2 days of the 9 days distribution period for Inside Magazines, he had 11 new customers already… even without the address being published! I just wanted to share with you all that one of the callers asking for the address was an elderly man in Durrington, I believe he

said that he is 83. The last year has been a particularly lonely time for our elderly residents. The caller informed me that the phone call to me was one of only a few conversations he had had throughout the year, and that he wanted the Sourdough Sandwich Bar to be his first trip out on the bus! So for those of you who haven’t tried Sourdough out yet, it can be found opposite the Town Hall at 80 Chapel Road, Worthing, BN11 1BN. *Goring readers the article can be found in any of the April editions of Inside Magazines at

Worthing Samaritans

target local mental health

Over the coming weeks, volunteers from Worthing Samaritans will be dropping leaflets through letterboxes in Worthing, in a new focus on mental health. It is known that having a mental health condition is a risk factor for suicide, and Samaritans has seen an increase in concerns about mental health among callers compared to the same time last year, with almost half of callers mentioning mental health concerns.

Samaritans want to highlight the support they offer to callers and those who email. Samaritans say that it is still too soon to know whether the pandemic has affected suicide rates and that a rise is not inevitable. However, it is hoped that simply raising awareness of the help available in Worthing will encourage people to seek support.

Samaritans’ vision is that “fewer people die by suicide”, and Worthing

Worthing Samaritans’ Director, Anne Copeland, says “our volunteers have continued to be available to callers throughout the pandemic, and as restrictions begin to ease, we hope people will keep our number to hand, and call us when they need us. So, when a leaflet drops on to your mat, keep it, and don’t hesitate to call or email.”

Little Legs

cycle over 100km

Turning Tides, the largest provider of support for homeless men and women across West Sussex, have praised the efforts of two young members of the local community for raising over £1,500 in just three weeks by cycling over 100km. When Cameron and Leah, just 6 and 4, were challenged by their parents to cycle 100km this January to help get fit and get out in the fresh air during the pandemic, it led to a discussion as to whether they could raise money for a local charity at the same time. Cameron and Leah first heard about the work of Turning Tides when a Harvest Appeal video was played at their school, Lancing Prep in Worthing. This sparked the inspiration to use their cycle challenge to raise money to support the charity. For people who are having to sleep rough, the winter months bring the greatest risks, and when asked why raising money for homelessness meant so much to him, Cameron explained it was because, “they don’t have homes, especially during winter storms’’.

“The best bit was when my friends and teachers at school clapped as we cycled past. This was also the more tiring day as we cycled 20km that day!” explained 4 year old Leah.

support from their school with a specially arranged cheer of encouragement when the route took them past the school building, creating a touching community moment for all involved.

Aptly named ‘Little Legs’ the family team of Cameron and Leah (joined by mum and dad) originally set themselves a fundraising target of just £100 promoting the challenge on social media, with the support of Turning Tides. Little Legs were offered particularly encouraging

6 year old Cameron added, “It was special because people gave money, but it was very tiring. It felt good and rewarding and we got clapped as we cycled past our school and when we finished on our street this made me nearly happy cry”. Cameron and Leah achieved the impressive distance of 100km in just three weeks in only 12 rides, covering an amazing 20km in just one of the cycles alone. The support of the community Cameron and Leah gained during the challenge was truly heart-warming with 86 individual supporters donating a total of £1,509 – more than 15 times their original fundraising target.

When asked what they both gained from taking part in the challenge, Leah said she felt “stronger and fitter and better at cycling and it made me know more about homelessness”, and Cameron commented, “It made me feel fitter and stronger and it was rewarding raising the money”. Turning Tides awarded official supporter t-shirts, challenge medals and badges to the selfless pair who were delighted to receive these alongside recognition from friends, family and the local community. Moira Gardner, Community Groups Fundraising Officer, reflected, “individual fundraising – such as Cameron and Leah’s incredible achievement – is so vital to raising awareness within the local community, especially during the ongoing crisis when we need support more than ever. Increasing numbers of people are losing their jobs and livelihoods due to the pandemic and the numbers of local people accessing our services is rising. It is only through the collective efforts of our community that we can continue to support those most vulnerable.” “We urge anyone and everyone to follow in Cameron and Leah’s footsteps and consider arranging their own individual fundraising challenge, and remind them it does not necessarily need to by an athletic feat.”

Moira continued, “In fact right now we have a Lent4Good Appeal and if you go to our website there are lots of simple fundraising things you can do this month – look for our Lent4Good Challenge Calendar for ideas.” “Everyone has different abilities, it’s about finding something that would be a personal challenge to you, and calling on your loved ones to support you to see it through to completion.” “We love supporting individual fundraisers, there is so much heart to each story and the personal reasons for choosing to take on a challenge. We offer lots of support from setting up your Just Giving page to promoting you on our social channels. We have t-shirts and medals too! And to mark your achievement we will send you a personal certificate!” Turning Tides offer lots of helpful information and guidance on fundraising, including ideas to get you started on their website

Inside Your Environment

Wear it don’t bury it The start of a new Summer school term conjures up memories of an exciting trip into town, Woolworths (who didn’t love Woollies?) to buy shiny new stationary, and finally summer school uniform! Time to ditch the winter uniform as you’d probably have grown out of it by the Autumn term anyway.

We are all aware now that the fashion industry is at a huge turning point and needs to very quickly become more sustainable due to its huge impact on our planet. But when we think or read about it, it usually refers to fast fashion, trends that last as long as the milk in our fridge before we’re looking for the next and dumping cheap garments into landfill. How often do we hear about other forms of clothing? Clothing like school uniforms which are rarely worn for its full life before our children have grown out of it? I thought I would do a bit of research on how we can be more sustainable with our uniform choices.

28 01903 357003

I was surprised to find out that it is up to individual schools whether or not they have a uniform policy, and what the policy might entail. The Department for Education (DfE), however, does strongly encourage schools to have uniforms. With estimates for new school uniform costing anything from £100-£300 per child, per year, there is lots of potential here for saving not just some cash, but the health of people and planet too. In a bid to make uniforms fair and affordable, the DfE now recommends allowing non-branded garments, more widely available from different suppliers, even supermarkets, and for those suppliers to keep cost low. In some supermarkets you can pick up a pack of 2 intricately made shirts for less than £3. This is great for us as parents, however it does come with some responsibility. We should still be asking the question made famous by Fashion Revolution ‘Who made my clothes?’ Are they coming from a trustworthy source who look after and pay their garment workers a living wage with safe working conditions? It’s hard to see how that can be possible with some of these prices.

Helen Adams The other question we could ask is; do we need to buy new or could we reuse? The website Old School Uniform is a UK wide website set up by parents for parents, where they can sell or give away used school uniform. There wasn’t much on there for the Worthing area when I came across this site, however, if we begin to use resources like this, we can keep uniform in circulation for longer. Not only is this better for the environment but also it can bring down the cost of our yearly uniform bill. Facebook pages have also been set up specifically for school uniform sales or giveaways. For those on the social media site, there is a busy Worthing page were uniform from all schools in the area are posted. Many schools now also have their own pre-loved system where you can buy quality second hand uniform that’s been grown out of. This is a great option as it’s also a great way of fund raising for new and exciting school resources and events.

If you do need new school uniform, (let’s face it white shirts don’t last too long on an active child!) but you still want to make as small an impact on the planet as possible, there are now online retailers, and one or two high street stores, that sell organic cotton uniform basics.

It’s also nice to know summer is finally on its way! Helen x  01903 357003


Wild Inside

In the sky a bird was heard to cry

Misty morning whisperings And gentle stirring sounds

Grantchester Meadows Pink Floyd

Inside Wild May features sounds that soothe and noises that annoy. A quieter life in the time of COVID makes for restorative reconnections with natural sounds and sometimes even the rare experience of the sound of silence! There has been a partial holiday from the clamour of everyday life without the usual noises of transport and the world of work. Reduction in traffic signals a healthy decrease in pollution, noxious nitrogen dioxide, pernicious particulates and carbon emissions, too! Nonetheless construction companies continue to build roads, civic and retail amenities, new accommodation and multifarious home improvements. Service industries maintain, repair and provide installations for gas, electricity, mains water, waste disposal and now, WOW – fanfare – the rollout of broadband fibre-optic cable to the home! Since Feb. 2020 telecoms engineers have been noisily digging up roads, alleys and pavements and climbing up poles to create futuristic fast fibre connectivity. Improved access to the internet means more of us can stay ‘soundly’ (or perhaps

Dr Barbara Pilley Shaw

noisily) in touch. After laying cables and replacing there may be more racket down the road if subsequent subsidence leads to … repairing potholes! Global developments of industrial hi-tech built environments are so noisy they seem to have generated a mysterious resonating World Wide Hum that some 2% of us unwillingly tune into! In contrast natural sounds like birdsong disappear, alongside many birds. BUT feathered songsters made something of a comeback during lockdown, tuning up to attract mates, staking out territories and building nests before gearing up to feed and protect hatchlings until they fledge. In really wild places the melodious medley of the dawn chorus intensifies through May and June. We’ve lost the expertise of fore-fathers who would have recognised many bird calls but we may be surprised at our knowledge and help is always at hand through wildlife charities.

The Royal Society for Protection of Birds, the richest wildlife charity, is the fifth biggest UK landowner. The Big Garden BirdWatch 2021 was a bumper year for volunteer recorders but not for birds! House Sparrows, Robins and Blackbirds did well but Greenfinches and Chaffinches had lowest ever recorded numbers. Over the last 50 years 40 million birds have disappeared from our skies. The Woodland Trust manages woodland habitats producing downloadable bird spotter sheets. In spring and autumn Nature’s Calendar volunteers clock into Climate Change. They record the impact of changing weather patterns on flowerings and fruitings and on migration patterns of birds Swifts and Swallows, and of Painted Lady butterflies.

Pop-up hub

eat, drink, exercise and have fun…

Plans for an exciting popup project which would turn under-utilised land overlooking Worthing seafront into a brand new food, drink and wellbeing hub have been revealed. With the COVID pandemic forcing many to embrace alfresco socialising, property company QED has submitted a proposal to transform the open-air terrace at Grafton multi-storey car park into a pop-up food and drink outlet for local independent businesses. Known as Level 1, the area is billed as somewhere the whole community can take advantage of – as they work, eat, drink, exercise and have fun – while enjoying the views towards the seafront. The plans have now been formally submitted to Worthing Borough Council ahead of a proposed opening later this year. The firm is calling on businesses to register their interest to operate out of the hub, which aims to create almost 25 new, full-time jobs.

Harry Smith, Director at QED said: “The pop-up will be year-round, and will have a schedule of activities including pilates, yoga, walking clubs and Tai-Chi, as well as there being food and drinks available throughout the day. “We are hoping it will be a next step for some of the seafront concessions to have a premesis, and for their businesses to flourish. “We hope the pop-up will create 24 full-time equivalent jobs and we will focus on recruiting those aged 1624 years old that have been hardest hit by the pandemic.” The proposal builds on the success of the Council’s seasonal concession programme, which has grown in popularity in the town in recent years. As well as being a hub for food and beverage businesses, the terrace will also be a flexible and creative space used to host health and wellbeing activities, public art and events like beach cleans, comedy and quiz nights and Christmas markets, in order

32 01903 357003

to engage with different audiences. The Council continues to work towards the longer term regeneration plans of the wider Grafton site. A spokesperson for the Council said: “If approved, the pop-up space will create a fantastic link between the seafront and the town centre and will enhance the appearance of the car park which is a prime seafront property. “It would help to bolster our local economy, giving local, independent businesses the chance to grow and develop after what has been a very challenging year. “The proposed development would also aid in our efforts to regenerate the town centre drawing in visitors from far and wide during what we expect will be a very popular year for staycations.” Local businesses who wish to find out more and register their interest can visit:  01903 357003
