ALL CHANGE AT THE TOP!
The 2017 AGM marked the third year in succession of another good year for Littlehampton Shopmobility. We continued to deliver high quality services to the public at an affordable price.
 
Over the past few years we made many changes for the better and forged a sound base line to carry the charity well into the future. To have achieved this would not have been possible if not for the dedication of our staff and volunteer workers which is greatly appreciated. June and Teresa are an asset to the charity to who we are grateful.
 
I have completed three years as chairman and in accordance with the constitution I have stepped down to make way for Vicky Rhodes whom I am sure will carry on and also bring new ideas to the board.
 
For me, there is still a number of things that I wish to bring to fruition and will continue on the board. I wish Vicky all the best for another successful year ahead.

REGISTRATION SERVICE NEWS, We are pleased that the mobility scooter registration service that we piloted from July 2015 was launched on 28th March '17 at the NEC in Birmingham and has now become the National Mobility Register (NMR). All scooters that were previously registered are in the new national register so there is no need for anyone to re-register.

 

 

See what Fred & Milly are up to!

 

Fundraising

We sell used books from the shop that are donated to us, through the goodwill of two local authors we are selling the new books listed below. Both subjects have never been researched so thoroughly or published before in such detail. At only £4.99p each or £7.99p for a pair they are both of great value to those interested in local history. Half of the proceeds of the paperback will be donated to the charity 2.50p and 5 will be donated for a pair.

 

 

 

The Elusive Molly Grays, by Tessa Raymond

published on the 1st March 2015

ISBN 978 0 9927921 1 4

This book viewed through the eyes of Genealogist Tessa Raymond, is skilfully researched and written. Depicted in the early 19th century until well into the 20th beneath the fame they had built for making delicious sweets for decades, is a mixture of heartache, grief and the brave need to survive.
