Children invited to become Marine Warriors

Children are being encouraged to learn about marine life and the beautiful Sussex coastline with the launch of Worthing’s new ‘Marine Warriors’ initiative.

The activity, created by Worthing Borough Council’s Coastal Office, aims to inspire kids to follow a fun and educational seaside trail to the rockpools, where they can explore, discover and learn about the beautiful world beneath the sea.

The Marine Warrior backpack, which is free to hire from the Coastal Office, contains a compass, magnifying glass, crabbing net, bucket and spade. All items have been carefully chosen as eco-friendly and sustainably sourced to highlight the plastic pollution crisis in our seas.

GREATER BRIGHTON CITY REGION CAN LEAD THE UK FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE

Greater Brighton (which includes Worthing) can be a flagship city region leading the fight against climate change but needs more government support to unlock powers to take action.

That was the message from Greater Brighton’s spokesman on the environment as he closed a special conference on transitioning to a net zero carbon economy which attracted speakers from around the world.

Cllr Phelim MacCafferty, who is also Leader of Brighton and Hove City Council, told the conference, ‘I really hope that the PM and the UK governments accelerate the pace and scale of change that is so urgently needed.

‘We need political leaders working together at national and international levels to give our planet and our ecosystem a fighting chance.’

He added that time was not on the side for the battle nor were resources plentiful.

‘Hence, we need to pool our capacity as a region, put our political differences to one aside and pull together to solve this climate crisis for the benefit of all our communities now and for future generations,’ he said.

OUTDOOR LEISURE FUN PLAN TO BRING TEVILLE GATE BACK TO LIFE AS COUNCIL BUYS KEY SITE

The revival of the long-derelict Teville Gate site is to take a leap forward with the search on for a company to take it over for leisure activities while a longer term developer is sought.

Now as it prepares to look for a partner to bring forward a new housing and retail development it has advertised for a ‘meanwhile’ use operator to bring life back to the site with outdoor activities.
