New Event to Showcase Best of Billingshurst


Residents in Billingshurst looking for something to do with their spare time are being invited to a brand new event.

 

Billingshurst Showcase will feature stands from no less than 36 charities, clubs, societies and organisations telling you all about their activities, what they have to offer and how you can become involved.

 

The event is being sponsored jointly by Billingshurst & District Rotary Club and Billingshurst Parish Council working together to showcase all the great things that go on within our community and how you can get involved.

 

This all takes place in the main hall and foyer of the Billingshurst Centre in Roman Way, and will be crammed with ideas to occupy the spare hours of all ages.

 

Sandy Duck of the Rotary Club said “This sort of event works well in other parishes so we’re hoping it will prove popular here in our own community. If you are wondering what you can do now you have more leisure time both individually and as a family, and we all know the benefits of being active both physically and mentally have never been more important now than ever before, this will be a great opportunity to explore how you can get involved either as a member or helper in one or more of our voluntary groups.”

 

Clerk to Billingshurst Parish Council Greg Burt added, “The Council was delighted to support Sandy’s idea, because it had been thinking about how it can engage with the many newcomers to the village, particularly those in the new housing, letting them know all the great things that go on in our community and how they can become involved and support the village.   Joining Clubs and Societies is a great way of making new friends and becoming part of the community.”

 

The Showcase is being held on Saturday 23 March 1.30-4.30pm. Entry is free and refreshments will be available. 

 

There is sure to be something to suit every possible interest with a wide variety of stalls for the environment, sport, pets, transport, health & welfare, children & young people, sports, art and religion to name but a few.

 

Residents thinking about standing in the Parish Council elections in May will also to be able to find out more about what being a Councillor involves.

THE LATEST UPDATE FROM THE

 

COMMUNITY POLICE HUB

 

 

 

 

BILLINGSHURST

 COMMUNITY

 SPEEDWATCH

 


You may remember in 2017, the Parish Council appealed for  local

residents to come forward and form a Community Speedwatch Group.

A number of people came forward but they are always looking for more volunteers.  If speeding vehicles in our local area is something that bothers you, could you spare some time to join the group?

  

 

Members of the group say .....

 

Please, don't think this is an "old people's" pastime or you have

to be retired, the CSW teams are open to everyone of all ages. It

only takes up a very small amount of time at irregular intervals of

no more than two hours per session. You can regulate your availability

yourself and turn out as much or as little as you like.

Call 105 

 

Recently launched, 105 is a new three-digit number that people can call to report or get information about power cuts.
