The new bin collection timetable has been in place for a while now and we’ve all had time to get used to the new system. There will be a review after 12 months so all feedback is welcomed. The ‘Bins’ section of the Horsham District Council website www.horsham.gov.uk is very informative, but if you still have comments you can send an email to
email@example.com or phone 01403 733144.

Major Cycle Event Sunday 23rd September
15,000 cyclists will leave Goodwood Motor Circuit for the start of the first “Vélo South” on Sunday 23rd September – a major new 100-mile closed road cycle event for the UK. The route is circular and can be viewed on the website. The part which will effect West Chiltington will see the cyclists come from Ashington and travel west along Harbolets Road and Adversane Lane (B2133) which will be closed from 08:15 – 16:45. The road closures therefore are likely to effect local travel arrangements on that day. From the velosouth.com website: “The route has been carefully considered and selected minimise the inconvenience of the necessary road closures. Emergency Services will be operating as usual and the public should use normal protocol in the case of an emergency.” If you do plan to travel on that day, please check the Velo South route first. Alternatively, you may wish to sign up and ride for a charity or as a business. For more detailed information go to: www.velosouth.com
