Meet Worthing Samaritans at the train station!Worthing Samaritans will be at Worthing Railway Station on Monday 29th November. They plan to use the event to raise awareness of Worthing Samaritans and the service they provide, as a round the clock “listening ear” for anyone who needs to talk.
A small team of Worthing Samaritans volunteers will be there to chat to members of the public about the work of Samaritans, and to take time to listen. Worthing Samaritans said: “We know that these events are really appreciated by rail staff and members of the public. They can generate fantastic conversations and we’re happy to offer emotional support if requested. These events also help rail staff to feel supported, and let them know that they can contact Samaritans themselves, as well as signposting rail users who may be struggling.”
The team will be there from 7 am – 9.30 am on Monday 29th November.
Anyone needing Samaritans can call us, free, 24/7, 365 days a year, on 116 123, or email email@example.com. You can also write to FREEPOST SAMARITANS LETTERS.

100% of Tesco’s customers polled in Worthing want supermarket to cut ties with forest destroyersOn 23rd and 30th October, Greenpeace volunteers visited Tesco on Chapel Road in Worthing to call on the supermarket giant to cut ties with forest destroyers, as part of an escalating nationwide campaign. Volunteers exhibited a life-size cut-out of Tesco CEO Ken Murphy, asking the question “Should I stop funding Amazon rainforest destruction?”. 100% of the 75 customers that were asked, voted that Mr Murphy needs to stop funding Amazon rainforest destruction. Lots of people also took photos with the cut-out and shared them on their social media channels. The cut-out Ken was then handed in to the staff at the Chapel Road Tesco store, alongside a letter from Greenpeace UK Executive Director John Sauven. After the campaign was explained to the staff they agreed to pass on the letter to store manager. The letter calls on the supermarket to drop forest destroying companies from its supply chain, and replace at least half of the meat it sells with affordable plant based alternatives by 2025.

DIVEST WEST SUSSEX DEMO FRIDAY 22nd OCTOBER 2021Worthing Climate Action Network, Extinction Rebellion Worthing, XR Chichester, XR Horsham, SECA, held a march and demonstration at County Hall, Chichester, on the day of a full council meeting.
For five years Worthing Climate Action Network has been calling for WSCC to divest the pension fund from fossil fuels. WSCC currently invest over £128 million pounds in fossil fuel companies, such as Shell and BP. We want 2021 to be the year they commit to full divestment.
With a funeral for the past and future victims of the climate crisis and speeches from Rianna Garguilo, Friends of the Earth, and Jenny Conduit, former Managing Director of JP Morgan, urging West Sussex to divest, this was a powerful and moving event.
Emma Cameron, Chair of Worthing CAN said: “The climate crisis is escalating. People in frontline communities, particularly in the Global South, are dying now but no one will escape; if global heating continues unchecked there will be food shortages and starvation. If we care about life on earth, investing in fossil fuels needs to stop.”
