Local car park thefts

We have been informed about a number of recent thefts from cars parked at local car parks, such as those at Lord’s Piece and Bignor Hill and more widely within the Chichester District.

Please be vigilant and don’t leave valuables visible within parked cars.

Fittleworth Evangelical Free Church has closed for regular services

Fittleworth Evangelical Free Church has a long history in the village which will hopefully be described in a future Village Magazine.

The Free Church has  had it’s last regular service on Sunday. It’s thought that a local group will still meet informally.

The church was originally at the the old ‘Mission Room’ building (now an extended and modernised home; previously a blacksmiths) on the edge of Hesworth Common.
