Meet your Parish Councillors – Saturday 1st
December 2018

The Parish Council will be holding a Meet and Greet event on Saturday 1st December at the West Chiltington Cricket Pavilion from 10am to 12 noon.

This is your chance to come and chat to your councillors in an informal setting, with refreshments on offer. We love meeting as many residents as possible and sharing what the council has been doing over the past year, ahead of the budget plan for next year.

Good news for users of Footpath 3425

Footpath 3425 runs between Common Hill and Monkmead Lane; regular users will know that a section has recently been restored.

Thanks to the collaboration of the Parish Council and a team from West Sussex County Council (Public Rights of Way) we can now walk along this section safely, due to the work done to shore up the bank of the stream and increase the width of the path. Come to our meeting on 1st December (see above) to see the ‘before and after’ photos.

Extortion Scam

Cyber criminals are attempting to blackmail unsuspecting victims by claiming to have used their password to install spying malware on their computer. The criminals claim they’ve recorded videos of the victim watching adult material by activating their webcam when they visit these websites.

What to do if you have received a phishing email

Don’t reply to the email or be pressured into paying. The police advise that you do not pay criminals but flag the email as spam/junk. Perform password resets as soon as possible and always use a strong password for important accounts such as your email. Always install the latest software and updates, install anti-virus software and keep it updated.
