Written by
East Brighton Trust is planning to develop the site we own at 39 Manor Hill.
The property is made up of one residential first floor flat and the ground floor has been let to a number of different local community groups over the years. After much thought on how the building could be best used, we have narrowed it down to two options.

All adults now able to have jab

Written by

All adults can now book a life-saving Covid jab vaccine.

From today, everyone aged 18 and over is being urged to arrange a jab if they have not had one as the NHS Covid Vaccination Programme, the biggest in health service history, begins the final push to protect the country.

People can book on the national booking system – either the website or by calling 119 – or through their GP led service.

People aged 39 and under who are eligible and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in line with updated JCVI guidance.

This opening up to the final cohort of people comes fewer than 200 days since the NHS made history by delivering the first Covid vaccine.

Vaccination rollout latest 180121

Vaccination rollout latest

The NHS in Sussex continues its rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination – this is the largest vaccination programme ever undertaken by the NHS. The Sussex Health and Care Partnership website has details on the rollout, including when you can expect to get your jab and details of vaccination scams to be aware of.

In order to help elderly and vulnerable people get to their COVID-19 vaccination appointments, concessionary bus pass holders can travel for free in West Sussex before 9.30am from this Monday (18 January).

Concessionary bus pass holders can currently travel free of charge in West Sussex, off-peak - which is weekdays 9.30am -11pm - and all day at weekends and bank holidays. From Monday, this temporary relaxation will allow them to also travel for free before 9.30am.

More information about the county council’s bus pass scheme is available here.

Latest COVID-19 figures

National restrictions remain in place. Cases in West Sussex have been rising and although we may have seen a plateau in cases, we must act like we have it to stop the spread.

Key messages

We all have an important part to play:

  • please do not contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, they will contact you;
  • when you are contacted, please attend your booked appointments;
  • once you have had your first vaccination you will receive a further appointment to receive the second dose, and
  • please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.

Scam Alert

We are aware that some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination. In some cases, people are asked to press a number on their keypad or to send a text message to confirm they wish to receive the vaccine. Doing so is likely to result in a charge being applied to their phone bill. In other cases, callers are offering the vaccine for a fee or asking for bank details. 

People are warned to be alert to these scams.

Changing Chalk Survey: C19 and the Sussex Downs

Written by

The National Trust and partners have a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to support activities and ideas that will help people to spend more time on the Sussex Downs and enjoy their experience of them when they are there.

The Sussex Downs are the range of chalk hills that extend from the borders of West Sussex to Eastbourne. They are part of the wider range of hills known as the South Downs.

The project is focused on the eastern range of the Downs, north of Brighton and Hove to Eastbourne, which include popular landmarks such as Devil’s Dyke to the north west, and Beachy Head to the east.

Former Egypt defender Adam El-Abd has been appointed as the Whitehawk’s assistant manager, the club announced.

El-Abd spent most of his career playing for English sides in League One and the EFL Championship, making over 400 league appearances.

The 35-year-old last played for League Two aide Stevenage after joining them from Wycombe last...
