Traffic! is the subject of the next Shoreham Society talk

Dr Janet Pennington set the ball rolling on Friday with Witches Warlocks and Wellingtons, a talk about the ritual protection of the home.

She examined some of the ways people in the past protected themselves and their homes from evil, and invited people to take in their own special objects to add to the items she had on display.

The next talk will be on Friday, March 17, at St Peter’s Hall, West Street, Shoreham, at 7.30pm. As usual, the bar will be open with tea and coffee available.

Adrian Towler, from the Shoreham Society committee, said: “The topic is traffic. It’s in the news, especially with the increasing amount of building going on, or about to. Expert speakers are to be announced.”

The programme continues on Friday, April 21, when Mark Perry Nash will present Women Who Changed British History.

Members will be visiting Horsham Museum on Wednesday, April 5, as guests of the Horsham Society and will join the free Horsham Welcome Walk at 2.30pm. The plan is to use the 10am No.108 Compass bus from High Street, Shoreham.

The society’s annual meeting is on May 19.

Mr Towler added: “The society is still discussing its stance on the proportion of affordable housing that should be built in the town. The new Adur Local Plan is being supported.

“It is also assisting Network Rail with new steps into the level crossing subway that don’t discriminate against vulnerable users.”
