UKHarvest Community Food Hubs

ALL residents are welcome to visit the child-friendly Community Food Hubs that are designed to reduce food waste. The Hubs also offer recipes and host information stands and visitors to support on various subjects; budgeting, wellbeing, Citizens Advice and waste prevention.

For a small voluntary donation, residents will be able to bring their own bag to pick up a wide selection of surplus foods (largely fresh fruit & veg, bread, dried goods and some frozen) which would have otherwise ended up as waste from suppliers.

All dates and details and more information is posted on both UKHarvest and the WSCC webpages: www.ukharvest.org.uk/community & www.westsussex.gov.uk/UKHarvest

Trinity Sunshine Choir, Storrington @ Trinity Methodist Church
Feb 28 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Storrington Sunshine Choir

A Community Choir in Storrington

A dementia friendly choir at Trinity Methodist Church, Thakeham Road, Storrington RH20 3NG.

Led by cognitive stimulation therapist Ric Gray, the session runs from 1030-1200 with time allowed for a cup of tea or coffee and a chance to make friends before the singing starts.

The choir is aimed at people aged 55 or over who are experiencing memory problems, but is open to all. No auditions, no sheet music, just good fun!  The sessions are most informal and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. The songs we sing are well known across different genres and we use a screen to display the lyrics and have accompanying backing tracks.

Anyone interested can contact Robert Gamble at robertgamblerc@gmail.com or 07958 232874.

Terrace at The Old Vicarage, Washington

The Old Vicarage Washington

https://findagarden.ngs.org.uk/garden/21793/the-old-vicarage

The 3½ acre garden at The Old Vicarage is set around an 1832 Regency house (not open) in the pretty village of Washington, West Sussex. As well as the stunning views looking towards the North Downs, enhanced by mature and various specimen trees, the garden has many pockets of interest. There is a Japanese garden with its waterfall, pond, bamboo and grasses, a further large water garden and numerous creatively planted herbaceous borders. A working kitchen garden has glasshouses, fruit cages, orchard and vegetables. The Italianate gazebo with green oak columns and lead roof offers a wonderfully comfortable place to sit and contemplate the beauty of this garden. Throughout, there are well placed seating areas to take in the stunning scenery. The treehouse is much loved by young and old alike, from here the nature viewing platform opens on to the woodland copse area which incorporates a stream and architectural stumpery. Everyone loves the topiary of characters who watch over the tennis court. In the spring there is an abundance of bulbs throughout: snowdrops, daffodils, tulips, fritillaria, camassia and bluebells. Whatever the weather, there is a haven in the conservatory where refreshments are available.

The Old Vicarage The Street Washington, Sussex RH20 4AS is open for the National Garden Scheme every Thursday 8th February to 10th October 2024 (10am-5pm) Admission £7, children free.
