There will a public meeting at Roffey Millennium Hall on Tuesday 10th December 2019 starting at 7pm to allow residents to find out more about setting up a Community Land Trust for North Horsham Parish. More details to follow.
The Road Safety Team at West Sussex County Council has set up a new Facebook page to help deliver important Road Safety messages to its residents, as well as the wider public who use the roads of West Sussex.
The aim of providing the Facebook page is to help reduce the Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI’s) statistics on the roads of West Sussex (and beyond) as well as reducing all incidents and injuries which occur on a daily basis, by delivering as much information and advice as possible.
The useful Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/RoadSafetyWSCC

Power cuts don’t happen very often these days, but if there’s a power cut, have you ever wondered how some people would cope?
UK Power Networks own and run the electricity cables in most of our region and fix power cuts. They deliver the electricity which you buy through your choice of supplier. They provide a free priority service for anyone who might face extra difficulty in the event of a power cut, including households with an elderly person, young children, someone less mobile or someone with a health condition.
By registering with UK Power Networks’ Priority Services Register you will be given a priority 24-hour phone number for communication, receive extra information and regular updates during any power cut. In the event of a longer power cut you could receive hot food, hot drinks and hot water, mobile phone charging and more. Those who rely on power to run medical equipment, such as dialysis or breathing apparatus, would also receive additional help.
More information can be found online at http://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/power-cut/priority-services-register. It’s quick and free to register by completing a short questionnaire. If you have family or friends who meet the criteria you can register on their behalf if they are happy for you to do so.
Please note that the majority of our members live in the area served by UK Power Networks (London, East and South East). However, a few do not, and it will be made clear to you in the online registration process if this is the case, and a link will be given to who your regional network operator is, so you can apply to join their Priority Services Register.
Neighbourhood Watch urges everybody who is eligible to sign up to UK Power Networks Priority Services Register, to ensure that they receive free extra help in the event of a power cut. Go online and search for UK Power Networks Priority Services Register.
