People are invited to visit, share their stories of Shoreham and contribute to a blog running throughout the day at shorehambfongproject.tumblr.com

The team will also be offering help with Facebook privacy settings, blogs, Twitter and editing digital photographs.

Charities and volunteer groups are welcome to come along for a social media surgery to help spread the word about their work and get the most out of the web.

The Agora empty shop project has been running for six months after being set up by Dan Thompson as part of the Empty Shops Network.

The once derelict shop has been transformed and hosts pop-up art galleries, theatre rehearsals and workshop events.
