June 2019 Newsletter
Look & Sea cafe will be opening for the “season” around the third week of this month so do go
along sometime to welcome back our old gathering place. No news on the tower as yet.
You can also visit our stall for Civic Day on Saturday 22nd June in the High Street outside Sainsburys. If you have paid your subs collect your free copy of Link or pay them there. We will have lots of new information, the chance to do our own survey on the town’s future and we are to have several walks around the town (if only in leaflet form). The survey will also ask how popular having monthly evening/Saturday meetings
We are going to be asking our supporters their views on the proposal to change the name of this society to The Littlehampton Society, while maintaining all our pre sent affiliations. This is because so many of the public think the word Civic implies we are an arm of the District Council, which of course we are not.
With your help, we want to form sub committees starting with an Events sub committee to assist our Events Secretary who is ploughing a lone furrow. This will be only on an as and when basis, would not take up much of your time and you would be under no obligation to attend meetings and so forth. Please give this some thought. If you can give us an hour at any of our events it would be most appreciated, it might even be fun.
We are actively pursuing several possibilities that could lead to the establishment of a town hub somewhere in the town centre, to replace the much missed Tamarisk Centre, and the prospects are a little brighter then before. We now know another party has been granted a lease.
Our next coffee morning will be Friday 5th July when our speaker will be Adam Swain from WSCC on Waste Prevention and Household Recycling.
Remember it is your Society. Your comments, thoughts, ideas and helping hands are so vital.
