Will you pay more to support policing in Sussex?

This is a reminder that Neighbourhood Watch members, residents, their families and friends can now take part in the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner’s consultation for the 2018/19 Police Precept. This asks residents if they would be prepared to pay more per household to sustain policing in Sussex.

The Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, has launched a county-wide consultation to ask the public if they would be prepared to pay more for policing in Sussex. If you have not already done so, can you please spare a few moments to complete a very short survey?  Click HERE for full details and a link to the survey

2019 HORSHAM YEAR OF CULTURE

Horsham District Council has recently announced that 2019 will be its Year of Culture with a range of events and activities taking place to celebrate the culture and heritage that we have throughout the district. 

Henfield has decided to participate with its own 2019 Year of Culture and to encourage local people and organisations to organise events and activities which celebrate our own culture and heritage. We hope this will be interesting and entertaining for our residents and encourage visitors to come along and join in. We have also agreed to work in partnership with our neighbours in Woodmancote and Shermanbury and we hope that the activities will take place across our three parishes. Henfield Community Partnership has agreed to take on the task of leading and organising our Year of Culture events and Liz Taylor has agreed to Chair the Organising Committee which has recently had its first meeting. They hope to develop a calendar of events throughout the year culminating in a Henfield Festival Week which will take place in June 2019 and which will include the popular Festival of Gardens & Arts and a new version of our Summer Show & Fayre with the organisation of this event transferring from the Parish Council to an organising committee led by the Community Partnership. 

If you or your organisation are interested in participating by organising an event during 2019 or you would like to contribute ideas we would love to hear from you. Please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will get in touch.
