NEW wheelchairs have been bought to help elderly and disabled parishioners in Selmeston.

Selmeston Lunch Group will use £200 given by the Police Property Act Fund to buy the two chairs.

Both churches in the parish will benefit as well as Selmeston and Arlington Village Hall when events are held there.

Wheelchair users will be able to negotiate any long and steep driveways using the new chairs.

PCSO Kelly Levers said: “I visit the lunch club which is held on the second Thursday of every month at Selmeston Village Hall. The club are always very welcoming and when I heard about their fundraising I was more than happy to apply for a small amount of money to help.”

The Police Property Act Fund (PPAF) is made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.

Rev Peter Blee was also there at the cheque presentation.

He oversees the parish churches in the local area which have a fascinating history but are also engaged in all sorts of exciting community activities in the present day.
