Nothing to report

Councillors report: MW.
Mark said that the Remembrance Parade and the wreath laying ceremony went off very well. At the council meeting the Liberal Democrats tabled a motion asking the Council to send a letter to the Government asking them to to stop Brexit. The motion was denied. Mark also informed us that there was a proposed new housing development in Northbrook of Fulbrook Avenue. To be built by a Scandinavian firm as high quality eco houses at a reasonable price.

County Organisers report: JW.
John thought that Nigel was wrong to stand down The Brexit Party but also thought that the Brexit party could collapse at any tine as it wasn't structured as a proper political party. But that we could not trust the Tories.
General Election 12/12/2019
It was decided not to stand in the General Election as we thought that there was a good chance that we would split the vote as the Liberals and Greens had a pact to not stand in each others way and  that in Worthing Labour had been making headway. So hold your Nose and Vote Boris and hopefully BREXIT 

Mike announced that he would be standing down as chairman from the date of the election 12/12/2019. The committee voted that Mark Withers should stand in as an interim Chair and Jessica Bignell as interim Treasurer.

The Next Meeting should be an AGM to elect a new Committee.
This should take place in early January 2020. Members to be informed by letter as soon as possible.
