During the weekend I joined Arun Councillor Mark Turner with the Ferring Village Hall team for their annual festive Arts & Crafts Fair.
Virginia and I enjoy seeing and being a part of the Advent spirit across Worthing and Arun at this time of year. Our communities come together best during the colder and darker months.
Our community groups do admirable work in bringing together residents who may be lonely at this time of year. They make sure that no one is left out of the festive spirit.
Informal gatherings often make it possible for a constituent to raise a private dilemma where my dedicated team and I can offer advice or help.
