TIM DREW: A host of dates for your diary

THERE are plenty of dates for your diary in this week’s column, the first being Sunday, September 28, when a ‘Complement your Community’ wellbeing day will be held between 10am and 4pm at the St Paul’s Centre, in Chapel Road, Worthing.

This is aimed at encouraging community organisations to come together to promote the wellbeing of the local community of central Worthing and will focus on education, family, employment, environmental and physical and emotional/mental health issues.

To Neighbourhood Watch members, a brief reminder – if and when you call 101 or 999 to report a crime, please remember to mention your membership.

This enables the police call centres to collate information and report on the assistance we provide towards crime reduction.

Tomorrow, Friday, September 20, local surgeries will take place at the Maybridge Keystone Centre, in Raleigh Way, with PCSO Ros Tite (Castle), and at the Worthing Leisure Centre, in Shaftesbury Avenue, with PCSO Elaine Tullett (Marine), both from 11am to midday. PCSO Sally Haggis’ surgery will be upstairs at the Heene Community Centre, in Heene Road, on Monday, September 23, between 7pm and 8pm. Two further surgeries, both between 11am and midday, will be held by PCSO Ben Cruise (Tarring) on Thursday, September 26, at the West Worthing Baptist Church, in South Street, and by PCSO Shauna Bowen (Offington) at Findon Valley Library, in Lime Tree Avenue, the next day.

Lastly, the annual general meeting of the Worthing Neighbourhood Watch Association will take place on Wednesday, October 16, at English Martyrs Church hall in Goring Way, Goring, at 7pm. Among our guests will be Chief Inspector Jo Banks, district commander for Worthing and Adur, and John Wright MBE, the chairman of the Sussex Neighbourhood Watch Federation.

Our speaker for the evening will be Sergeant Stewart Goodwin, of the Sussex Police roads policing unit.

Road safety is one of the four key areas of community concern as identified by PCC Katy Bourne – so, if you share this concern, don’t miss out on our AGM!
