Gerald Illsley, secretary, said: “In the past year of preparation, the new club has been busy helping at the local Covid vaccination centres, supporting projects in local schools, fundraising at Christmas and most recently in aid of the Ukraine crisis.

“It will be involved in local events for the Jubilee and the East Preston Festival.

“There are nearly 90 clubs in Sussex, Surrey and the south London area which form the district. All have been busy working with and helping local organisations to run clubs for their local residents and helping with many new environment projects. Now, the Angmering club with its 23 founder members is ready to give a hand, too.”

The club meets each month in Angmering and East Preston, with a programme of social and dinner meetings, and fundraising activities. For more information email [email protected]
