Welcome | Worth Parish Council
Welcome to The Worth Parish Council Website

Welcome to the Parish Council's Website. It is hoped that you will find it interesting and informative.

It must be emphasised from the beginning that this site is designed to keep local residents informed about the Parish Council's activities. (After all, it is your money the Council is spending !). The website is not intended to duplicate any of the information contained in the existing Websites for both Copthorne and Crawley Down, the villages that comprise Worth Parish. That cannot be emphasised too strongly. Obviously there are links to both Village Websites as can be seen below, and it is to those that you should refer for information about local activities and organisations.

21/6/17 Terror Attacks

We have received the notification below from Sussex Police:

Dear Colleagues        

Following the terror attack in London outside the Muslim Welfare House on Seven Sisters Road, near Finsbury Park Mosque, the Police Service will continue to review how we are addressing community reassurance, safety and security.  

 As you will be aware, the victims were from the Muslim community, observing Ramadan. It is natural that there will be heightened concerns within our Muslim communities in Sussex, at local mosques and in surrounding communities and while details continue to emerge about this attack, our policing stance is continuously being reviewed in order for us to keep people safe. In Surrey and Sussex we continue to build flexibility within our patrols, and will be continuing to include local mosques within our targeted patrol plans.

As we approach the end of the month of Ramadan and the celebration of Eid, we are liaising with local Muslim groups and mosques to talk through any concerns and will be providing targeted police patrols to help reassure our local communities. Please can you let me or the District Commanders know if you hear of any concerns within our communities.

 As you will be aware, terrorism and extremism is not limited to people from any particular background, as this event reminds us all, and it is important that we all remain vigilant as we tackle the on-going terrorist threats from people with various motivations.

We all know that community intelligence is crucial to helping us prevent future attacks and we need to continue to ensure we are all part of the Prevent agenda and activity to combat terrorism.  I would be grateful if you could please continue to remind all your staff of the important role they can play in keeping the country safe and the responsibilities they have to look out for anything suspicious or any individuals they are concerned about and report it.

 Please report any suspicious activity using the anti-terrorist hotline number 0800 789 321 or 999 in an emergency.

For more information please visit our advice page and watch the Run, Hide, Tell video.

 We will keep you updated with any significant developments. If in the meantime you have any questions please do get in touch.

 Thank you for your continued support

 Best wishes

5/6/17 Terror Attacks - Message from Sussex Police

All policing remains under review to ensure appropriate security after the terror attacks in London last night.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Barry, Head of Operations Command, said: “Many of us became aware of the news as it broke last night of the terror attacks in London.

“As details emerge about what happened, through this Met Police-led investigation, our thoughts are with victims and all of those involved, including those who bravely responded.

“People will see enhanced high visibility patrols at key locations across the counties as we continue to keep all policing under review across Surrey and Sussex to ensure the most appropriate security is in place to keep our communities safe.

“Policing in the UK continues to operate at a heightened state against the backdrop of a ‘severe’ threat level, which has been in place since 2014, and means that an attack is highly likely. This threat level applies to the whole of the UK and not any specific area.

“It is important for the public to work with us and remain vigilant as we tackle the on-going terrorist threat.

“Please report any suspicious activity using the anti-terrorist hotline number 0800 789 321 or 999 in an emergency.

"This is a time for us all to work closely together and unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to intimidate or cause fear."
