Walking down Ashmore Avenue this morning, I noticed that the road was blocked outside one of the houses which was "roped off" to prevent anyone going near. The front door and wall are pushed back a bit and there is a large crack in the wall. I understand that this was caused by a learner driver on Monday evening. Nobody was hurt fortunately.
Angmering Community Association, which was formed only in March this year, has obtained a grant of £5000 from 'Awards for All', to assist with the Association's ambitious programme of community events in the parish over the next couple of years. Current planned events include:
The Association was formed to promote and arrange activities in Angmering for all ages relating to the arts, education, parish heritage and leisure. Other aims are to promote community and environmental awareness. Monies raised through these activities are either used to develop and arrange further activities or put towards the furnishing of a community centre planned by Angmering Parish Council.
The Association's first event was last month when it successfully promoted a touring theatre production called "The Gardener", aimed at young children. It has also established links with many other organisations in the village with a view to bringing the community closer together and will continue to actively liaise with them.
More information about the Association may be found on its website at: www.angmeringca.org.uk

Did you know that a new coffee shop has opened up in Angmering? Manor Nurseries (opposite the Spotted Cow) opened their spacious coffee shop "Manor's" two weeks' ago. Apart from serving various coffees and other hot and cold drinks, the café sells delicious home baked cakes, Danish pastries, sandwiches, ploughmans, salads, jacket potatoes, etc, as well as Loseley ice creams.
The coffee shop is open between 9.15 and 4.15 on Mondays to Saturdays, and between 10.00 and 3.30 on Sundays.
It is noted that next week's planning applications includes an application from First London Developments Ltd to build 22 flats on the site of the former Texaco garage in Station Road adjoining the A259. The proposed development comprises 16 two-bedroom flats and 6 one-bedroom flats. It is interesting to note that this is at least the third Texaco site in the South/South East which First London have recently submitted planning applications. Angmering residents have been speculating on the use of this site since the Texaco garage closed on 10 June 2005.
A/83/06 - Change of use of ground floor from retail (A1) to a dental practice including a single storey extension at Blaber House, The Square. For Miss D Shah.

The last of the Angmering Parish Council's questionnaires on the proposed Community Facility (i.e. community centre) were delivered to residents yesterday. These need to be completed and sent back to the Parish Council by 30th June. If we are to get a community centre that reflects what Angmering residents would like, it is important that these questionnaires are returned to the Parish Council for analysis.
You should also have received your copy of the latest Parish News at the same time. If you haven't, you should let the Parish Council know by visiting their offices in The Square or phoning them on 850756.
As has been announced previously on this website, Angmering Twinning Association are holding a Farmers' Market plus Sussex Crafts & Celebration of Village Life on Saturday 26th August on Fletcher's Field.
The Association is now looking for people to act as marshals on the day to control car parking, visitors, etc. Help is required between 8.00 am and 3.00 pm. Maybe you can only spend a few hours but that, nevertheless, would be of great assistance. Armbands would be provided. If you are male or female and could help the Association in some way, please contact Val Jerram on 01903-774247 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
I noted with great disappointment this morning that the name of "Ann's Cottage" in The Square had been changed to "Dormouse Cottage". Ann's Cottage reflects Angmering's heritage and was named after Ann Ragless who lived there in the 19th Century, as did other members of the family before her. I wonder whether the current owners will appreciate the new name when they come to sell the property as it may suggest (probably without foundation) that it has rodent infestation!

District Councillor Julie Hazlehurst is providing a physical diary at Angmering's Library so organisations within the community can enter the date & type of event being arranged by their organisation. Angmering Village Life will also accept details of such events up to three months ahead for inclusion on our Events/Diary page.

Research into Angmering family and general history has been continuing. In the last month we have added a completely revised and updated article on The Square and The Green by Mr RW Standing plus a new page on the Parsons Family of Angmering. Today we have added one of the most significant pages that will be of major assistance to family history researchers - the complete 1901 Census of Angmering for which we must sincerely thank Mr Standing for his painstaking work.
