Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust (SCFT) is looking to recruit local people to join its Council of Governors.

Governors play an important role in the work of the Trust and can make a real difference. Duties include holding non-executive directors to account for the performance of the board, reviewing the annual report and accounts and representing the interests of the public at Trust meetings.

There is a Public Governor vacancy available that the Trust is encouraging local people to apply for in Crawley.

Peter Horn, Chair of SCFT, said:

“Our governors play an important role in shaping the future of community services across Sussex, they help us to understand the needs of the local population and give voice to the communities that we serve.

“They come from many different backgrounds and all walks of life, with a wide variety of skills and experience. So if you are passionate about the NHS and want to help plot its course over the coming years, then you could be just the sort of person we are looking for.”

The Trust provides a range of community services in people own homes, in clinics, GP surgeries and hospitals across Sussex.

If you are passionate about the health and wellbeing of local people and would like to help shape the future direction of the Trust, please visit the website for full details: http://bit.ly/scftelection21 or call 01273 696011 ext. 1520.

Crest Nicholson will begin road improvement works on Calvert Link, off the Kilnwood Vale Roundabout on Crawley Road, on the 11th of March 2021.

As part of these works, a new roundabout will be installed, and new road built to the west of the roundabout to cater for an anticipated increase in traffic flow due to the next phase of the residential development of Kilnwood Vale.

A change in traffic management is scheduled for the night of the 10th March 2021 and works are expected to be completed by 12th June 2021. During this time, Calvert Link will remain as a one lane access with use of vehicles via a traffic light system.

The improvements will continue to be fully funded by Crest Nicholson, in association with its nearby Kilnwood Vale development in Faygate.

Progress made in the area so far includes highway improvement works at the Cheals Roundabout, new draining to improve overall road conditions, a new footpath on Horsham Road to ease pedestrian access and bases for the new road lanes added to the approach and exit points via Horsham.

Crest Nicholson has put measures in place to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and access to surrounding properties, businesses and areas will be maintained at all times.

Should there be a need to contact the team, the contact number for the contractor carrying out the works is 01202 653570
