    You may be aware that Adur District and Lancing Parish Councils have jointly appointed BDP to produce a regeneration vision to identify aspirations for the future of Lancing village and seafront. We started work in January 2012 and many of you talked to them in February to share your thoughts and hopes for Lancing. Since then they have been working hard to develop the vision proposals based on the issues,
    opportunities and aspirations you raised and a detailed technical analysis of the village.

    The draft vision proposals are now ready for you to view and comment on. The vision sees Lancing becoming a vibrant 21st century village, a lively seaside destination and a network of places for the community. The vision will provide a strategy for regenerating the village centre, identifying land use zones and measures to stimulate economic growth, as well as transport, visual and street improvements. It will also include an action plan for putting the proposals in place.

    You are invited to take a look at the draft vision ideas at a drop-in exhibition on Friday 13th April from 3pm through to 8pm and Saturday 14th April from 12pm to 6pm at Lancing Parish Hall, South Street. The project team will be there to answer any queries and we would be delighted to hear your thoughts on the initial proposals. The exhibition will remain in the Parish Hall foyer for the following week for you to view
    at your leisure. Please do pass this invitation to anyone else that may be interested and please download the poster and display wherever you can.

    Following the exhibition the vision report will be produced and is due to be finalised by the end of May 2012. There will be a vision launch event on 24th May 2012. If you would like more information or wish to share your views privately, please do contact or on 0207 8128980. The exhibition boards will also be available to view online on the Parish Council website at Alternatively, keep up to date with progress or join the debate through the Adur and Worthing Regeneration Facebook page at

    Peter Raynsford from 5 Rings Telecom is running for Hope For Children in the 2012 Brighton Marathon.

    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.

    Kind regards,
    Peter Raynsford

    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.
