The Storrington Neighbourhood Wardens have just launched the Our Village scheme, designed to protect vulnerable members of the local community.
The scheme is an initiative which originated in Horsham and it allows individuals to enter a business venue that displays the Our Village logo, knowing that the personnel within will assist them by addressing their concerns and calling a next of kin or agreed contact should they meet any difficulties.
With the overwhelming support of local businesses in Storrington there are now over a dozen venues in the village with their distinctive window badge displayed prominently in the shop window. Information packs are available from those stores.
Current participants are:
Blush, Boots, Costa, Joanna's Boutique Tearooms, Velvet Hare, The Village Deli, Storrington Library, The Post Office, Carters of Storrington, The Card Shop, Waitrose, Tesco, Esso Express, Impulse Leisure Centre, Truffles Bakery and Oomoo Organic Hair Salon.
