Wellbeing Walk (Angmering Park Private Estate)
Like so many charities, Bognor-based 4Sight Vision Support has experienced an incredibly challenging year. The charity, which provides free advice and support to blind and sight impaired residents throughout West Sussex, relies heavily on voluntary donations to deliver its services to over 2,000 people each year. While fundraising has been heavily impacted, 4Sight Vision Support has however managed to find new and innovative ways of providing services to members throughout the pandemic, helping people with sight loss to stay active and independent and feel less isolated.
4Sight Vision Support is delighted to announce the resumption of its public fundraising events, and is inviting people to sign up for a Wellbeing Walk on Saturday 26th June 2021 on the beautiful Angmering Park Private Estate. This past year has shown how important it is to look after our wellbeing, and the Walk represents a fitting way to celebrate the resumption of public events such as these and kick-start fundraising activities and celebrations in what will be the charity’s 100th anniversary year.
The walk will take participants on an undulating 5 mile rural trail. Entry costs £10 for adults and £5 for children aged over 3. The fee includes refreshments, a bespoke wooden medal and wellbeing activities along the route. A special event T-shirt is also available for £10. The fee covers the costs of putting on the event, so in addition participants are encouraged to pledge £50 in sponsorship to support the vital work of 4Sight Vision Support.

The event is subject to Government guidance at the time.

Ferring Film Society screening of Military Wives (Ferring Village Hall)
Ferring Film Society will be showing their next film, ‘Military Wives’, on Friday 16th July 2021.
We are keen to resume showing films but there is so much uncertainty, both in terms of what Government guidelines will allow on the 16th July, and also, if you the audience is ready to return.
With this in mind, the screening will only take place if: - Government guidelines allow it, AND we have sold 60 tickets, (the minimum number we need to cover the costs). If the film night must be postponed, the film will be shown on 17th September. All tickets purchased can be used for the September screening.
With regard to the ticket sales, we will check ticket sales on the 9th July at 5.30pm. If the necessary number of sales has not been reached, we will update the posters on Saturday 10th July with a banner, either ‘Going Ahead’, or ‘Postponed – now showing 17th September’.
Anyway, on to the film!
The film is inspired by the real-life Military Wives Choirs network and follows a group of women who have been left behind on the home front while their partners serve in Afghanistan.
Sharon Horgan’s character, Lisa, who’s husband’s recent promotion pushes her into the role of Pastoral Support, struggles with the role. Kirsten Scott Thomas’ character Kate has lots of the required skills and the two women initially clash, but ultimately resolve their differences. Using the catharsis of music to help them cope with the absence of their partners, they found the very first military wives’ choir.
The film will be showing at Ferring Village Hall at 6:45p.m. for a prompt 7:00 p.m. start. Tickets will be sold at North Ferring Co-Op and at Premier Express at South Ferring, Ticket price is £6 which includes tea, coffee or a soft drink and biscuits.
