    Clear Your Clutter!

    Donate your unwanted items and help raise vital funds for disabled veterans

    Lancing Business Park’s chosen charity for 2017 is

    The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home (QAHH) in Worthing where they care for physically disabled ex-Servicemen and women. 

    The charity receives no regular Government funding and needs to raise over £1.3 million this year to continue their vital care.

    You can support them simply by donating your unwanted items for their pop-up charity shop stalls which raise thousands of pounds every year.

    They need books, DVDs, bric-a-brac, garden equipment, clothes, shoes, jewellery, handbags, toys/games, household items & small furniture. 

    (Sorry they can take large pieces of furniture or electrical items)

    All items need to be clean and in good order.

                                               

    Why not clear out your clutter and support this vital local charity. 

    What’s more you don’t even have to take the items to a charity shop as they will collect from LBP.  To donate simply take one or more bags home, fill it up and then bring it to work and QAHH will come and collect it from LBP on Tuesday 27th June.

    Thank You!

    Why should I employ a Degree Apprentice?


    The programme provides the Degree Apprentice with University and business experience. The Degree Apprentice is employed by the business and attends the University on a weekly basis.

    The two programmes develop practical IT and management skills together with essential project management, interpersonal and business skills. No fees are paid by the Degree Apprentice.

    The Degree Apprenticeship programme integrates academic learning and on-the-job practical training so that students graduate with the experience that employers really need.

    Coastal West Sussex Partnership News in Brief. This seasons newsletter will give you a brief summary of activities happening across the area. 

    2017 Forecast

    The Agent for the Bank of England, Andrew Holder presented a positive forecast for the economy at his address to the CWS Board and other business guests at his address in March FULL REPORT

    Local Developments in CWS
    This month we take a look at the Rampion Developments in Coastal West Sussex...







    Rampion Wind Farm

    One of the most eagerly awaited milestones for the Rampion
    project was achieved in March, the installation of the first
    offshore wind turbine. The turbine, located approximately 14
    kilometres from shore and visible on the horizon, is the first of
    the 116 MHI Vestas V112-3.45 megawatt (MW) models that will
    together make up the south coast’s first wind farm.

    The installation of turbines will carry on from now until late 2017,
    when all the turbines are expected to be in place.

    This type of sustainable energy fits with the UK Governments Approach to Global Goals for Sustainable Development which was released in March 2017. 

    Major facelift for Shoreham Beach gateway
    The Ferry Road entrance to Shoreham Beach Local Nature Reserve will receive a much-needed facelift after Rampion agreed to fund a landscaping scheme to enhance this important footpath, which directly links Shoreham Town Centre to the beach via the pedestrian ferry bridge. The work will aim to ensure beachgoers have a positve welcome as they arrive at the beach, with a view of the wind farm straight ahead.

    As an update on the situation at Rabbit Waste Management the EA have given approval for some of the extinguished material and wood to be temporarily stored on an adjacent site to give the fire services adequate space at Rabbits facility to continue their work.

     

    We can confirm that a fire broke out at our facility in Lancing in the early hours of the morning on Sunday 11th June

    Nobody has been injured and the company’s emergency procedures were followed by onsite staff.

    The Fire service attended and brought the fire under control and will continue to stay onsite until they are satisfied the fire is completely out and there is no chance of it reigniting.

    We would like to thank the fire service for their rapid response in bringing the situation under control.

    We would like to apologise to other business on the Business Park for any inconvenience caused

    On the 18th June us three have decided to have a leisurely bike from London to Brighton, gonna be easy right!

    We would very much appreciate any donation you can make be it how little or big.

    We raising money for the British Heart Foundation's research and I'd be so grateful for your support. The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target. Thanks!
