    Wadars are looking for volunteers to take part in “The Worlds Shortest Sponsored Walk” at the Worlds End Pub at Patching on Wednesday 30th May at 9.00pm. This is your opportunity take part in the craziest event ever to raise funds for wadars.

    Individuals will be sponsored to walk over 15ft of red hot glowing embers burning at 1200 degrees F. in their bare feet! Crazy or what!

    The event, which is organised by a professional fire walking company Survivorbility Ltd., will start at 6.00pm with the registration of the walkers, followed by the lighting of the fire. Walkers will be asked to attend a 1 hour “motivation” session before the walk and be taught how to do the walk safely. Then at 9.00pm in front of a huge crowd the participants will walk barefoot over the burning embers. Each competitor will get a certificate to prove they did the walk.

    So, if you think you are brave enough register now with wadars by either ringing 0300 30 30 999 (Fundraising) for a registration form and fundraising pack or email tony.thorn@wadars.co.uk

    Hope For Children is a fantastic charity and what they do is incredible
     
    I would be grateful if you would sponsor as much as you can spare. Given that we are in January and I have done no training I think this will be very difficult. I am starting training today and I would appreciate your support by donating kindly to this wonderful charity.

    Please simply click on the link below to make a donation.

    Parafix named Sussex Company of the Year to cap successful 2011

    Lancing-based manufacturing firm Parafix has been named Company of the Year in the Sussex Business Awards.

    Parafix, a UK leader in the adhesive tape industry, converting and cutting filmic tape, beat dozens of entries to win the coveted title at an awards ceremony in Brighton.

    The award caps a successful year for the firm in which growth has been strong despite difficult economic challenges.

    The company has continued to invest in state of the art technology to ensure it remains at the cutting edge of the adhesive tape sector.

    And it has demonstrated its on-going commitment to staff training by helping half its UK workforce to gain NVQ certificates, a strategy that impressed judges on the awards panel.

    In total, 26 employees at the firm’s Lancing factory have successfully gained NVQ qualifications in Business Improvement Techniques since 2009 despite a cut in Government funding for NVQ programmes.

    Managing Director Mike Punter said: “It was an honour to accept the Sussex Company of the Year award on behalf of all the team at Parafix. They all played a vital role in winning the title. 

    “For me, investing in our people is crucial. By helping them to grow and learn, so the company has grown. I believe it is this ethos that has seen us through the recession to become a strong and proud Sussex manufacturer.

    “We pride ourselves on not only engaging our staff but also delivering exceptional customer service, and we believe this makes Parafix a role model for manufacturing in the region; as strategists, responsible employers and innovators.” 

    Parafix converts and cuts filmic tape to incredibly accurate specifications for use in sectors such as electronics, healthcare and engineering.

    Since 2009, Parafix has invested £350,000 in market-leading equipment helping to improve productivity and efficiency, and as a result was able to expand, adding a factory in Russia to its already successful overseas operations launched in Hungary.

    The firm stayed focused on customer satisfaction, scoring an 80% repeat business rate and an increased new business win rate, using an advanced online product selector to help customers choose the right product.

    As a result of the company’s commitment to its staff and customers, it remained profitable for 2009 and 2010 and has now returned to pre-recession sales.

    ROAD REPAIRS - UPDATE

    All of the resurfacing work has now been completed and the disruption was minimal.  Work on repairing the cracked joints will commence on Monday 5th December and again this work will take place overnight. 

    As a lot of these ‘joints’ are in the middle of the road it is likely that there will be a rolling programme of road closures for safety reasons and as before these will be properly managed by the highway authority.  The plan is for all of this work to be completed before Christmas and we should be left with a very acceptable set of roads!  

    Thank you all for your cooperation whilst this essential work was carried out, and your anticipated cooperation over the next two weeks.
