West Sussex County Council – Crowd Funding Platform

Anyone, from local businesses to individuals, can make a pledge. West Sussex County Council is also making £330,000 available to pledge to projects on the site.

WSCC are trying to spread the word and encourage as many local communities as possible to make the most of this.  You can find out more about the West Sussex Crowd here:


“Level 3 Heat Warning” Issued by WSCC

Residents in West Sussex are being advised to take precautions with heatwave conditions continuing this week, according to the Met Office.

A Heat Health Watch Level 3 has been issued for the South East from today (2 July) until tomorrow night, with highs of 31˚C during the day, and 16˚C expected overnight.

High temperatures are then expected to continue into the weekend.

Some tips on how to cope in the hot weather are:
• avoid getting too hot in the first place – keep windows closed if it is cooler inside, close curtains or blinds. Open windows again when it starts to get cooler outside and temperatures drop but be mindful of security
• check your home’s thermostat or thermometer to see how hot your home is getting
• have plenty of cold drinks and avoid alcohol
• have regular cool baths and showers
• avoid being outside during the hottest part of the day (11am to 3pm), stay in the shade and avoid strenuous activity
• wear appropriate cool, light clothing and a hat
• when going outside, make sure you and your family use sun cream at all times to protect your skin
