Plus, it's Lina's Birthday Party so it's BBQ Italia!

A fun night of mostly Modern Jive with a couple of short Barn Dance sessions to make it interesting and make the night suitable for non- jivers to take part to support the two local causes - life saving public defibrillators and a youth sailing project to get children off the streets and sailing.

It's a dance with a difference. Loads of jive - three and a half hours. But also a couple of short sessions of barn dancing. This means you can bring your non-jiving friends and family. Doors open at 7.00pm - there will be a short jive lesson around 7.30pm and two sessions of barn dancing lasting half an hour each - over three and a half hours of modern jive plus a fun chance to barn dance.

Food - BBQ burgers, hot dogs, jacket potatoes and more - with ice cream to finish. Please note, because it's Lina's birthday there will be some Italian style food too. Drink - the bar will be open selling a selection of wines, beers and spirits.

Defibrillator Appeal by Joss Loader - Chairman of Adur District Council
(Taken from the Council website)

This year the Chairman will not be supporting individual charities.  Instead:  The Chairman is launching a district-wide, community defibrillator fund-raising appeal too install life-saving machines in outdoor locations across Shoreham, Southwick, Fishersgate, Lancing and Sompting. Once installed, these machines can be installed by dialling 999 and requesting medical assistance, plus an access code.

Joss said: “We have already done this with great success on Shoreham Beach and SBRA installed two defibrillators last month after a fund-raising drive. I plan to work with local community groups, organisations and businesses to try to ensure that all areas have 24/7 access to these great machines.

I am doing this in memory of my late father, Brian Hollebone, who died very suddenly from a catastrophic heart attack more than 30 years ago, when defibrillators were not not available. If just one resident's life can be saved, I shall consider it a job very well done.”

Supeta - Appeal
Youth Sail 
Training Project

Volunteers are working hard to put a new sail training vessel on the water.

Businesses in Lancing and Shoreham have already given a lot of support but what is needed now is the money to equip the boat to meet Maritime and Coastguard Agency standards.

Tom Smith on the water
Tom Smith, Scout leader and project organiser, said: “The whole idea is to use it as a sail training ship. There is nothing like learning respect on the boat. You have to learn how to work together as a group, you have to learn skills. The downside is that before we can get it into use, it has to be accredited. We need to equip it to the required standard, which will cost about £9,500. Obviously, we can’t move forward to put her in the water until then. If we can get it all together it will mean so much. It is going to be a fantastic asset. There is nothing else like it between the east coast and Portsmouth. Adur being a maritime area, it is nice to teach children how to respect the water and to use it. It will be a thing of pride.”

The boat, called Supeta, was donated by retired surveyor Janet Mockridge, former West Sussex county councillor for Southwick.
