MAYOR OF LITTLEHAMPTON
This year it has been extremely difficult for our town mayor to hold fundraising events for his chosen charities. Just last month he was forced to cancel the Mayors Charity Dinner due to the new government guidelines in regard to Covid-19. Head over to his Facebook Page to find out how you may be able to help him – www.facebook.com/littlehamptonmayor
The four charities the Littlehampton Town Mayor has chosen to support during his year in office are –
Creative Heart Community Hub
Littlehampton Sea Cadets
1087 Squadron Air Training Corps
and the 4th Littlehampton Scouts
The Mayor has set a target of £12,000 to be raised for these four charities before the end of his year of office in May 2021. If you are able to make a donation please head over to his Crowdfunding page at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/david-chace
There have been a large number of events added to our events calendar recently, including The Littlehampton Arts Trail that is on now until 12 October, so pick up a brochure from one of the venues around town. A series of exhibitions and courses continues at Beach Road Gallery and Studio, and visitors are being welcomed back to the Littlehampton Museum, but you do need to book in advance and it is free! There is a full program of films showing at The Windmill Cinema and the Littlehampton Town Artisan Market Halloween Special on 31 October looks to be a grand finale to the month of October.
More events are being added every week, so head over to the Littlehampton Info Events Calendar to see what is happening.
