TTW Repair Café – Book Now For November!

Book your slot now for our final Repair Café session of the year on Saturday 27th November 10am -1pm & 1.45 -4pm.

Electrical, computer and household repairs are always very popular but this month we are specifically focussing on sharing the skills of our amazing sewing team. They can show you how to use a sewing machine or overlocker, how to knit (very useful skill to have with Winter fast approaching!) or crochet, they can repair soft toys, add zips, mend tears, holes and rips and restyle or upcycle your clothes. Their talents are endless!

Any questions, or if you would like to join our team of repairers, please do email us at: [email protected]

Arnold Clark Community Fund to the rescue!

We put in a bid to this fund at the beginning of March, one of those “let’s send it in and keep our fingers crossed” spur of the moment things that you do when you are desperate to keep the ball rolling – somehow – and we recently heard that we’d been successful.

What a lifesaver – so grateful to this organisation who are supporting groups like ours, who’ve had their regular income stopped in its tracks because of Covid – what would we do without their generosity.

We live to fight another day!

A Great Day At The Farmers’ Market

How lovely to be able to be part of the The Great Little Farmers’ Market CIC on the Goring Road on 1st May (despite the rain at the end) – it’s been over a year since we’ve been able to do a public event and it was good to be back!

We took donations for plants, seeds, books, preserves and bags and did really well.

Big thanks to Steve, Julia, Sarah, Francoise, Alan and Richard for giving up their Saturday morning to help, and to all the lovely people who stopped to chat and we are most grateful to Sharon Leppard for allowing us to be part of this delightful local event.

TTW at Goring Road Farmers Market 1st May

TTW are looking forward to running a stall at the great local Goring Road Farmers’ Market on Saturday 1st May from 9am – 1pm.

We will be offering seeds, plants and books in return for donations and of course lots of info and updates about our activities and future plans! This will also provide us with the first perfect opportunity of the year to chat with you all about what you would like to see happening with TTW and how you may be able to contribute in whatever way you can.

Please save the date and we hope to see you there!

Seed Swap In A Box!

It was such a shame that we were unable to hold our Seed Swap & Spring Fair this year as we always greatly look forward to it and to seeing you all.

In order to ensure that the seeds we have all collected over the last couple of years are not left unused, we shall be making up seed packets and making them available for you to rummage through and choose a selection, in return for a small donation!

We have a variety of both vegetable (salad leaves, heritage beans, brassicas, tomatoes etc) and flower (perennials, annuals, wildflowers etc) seeds available and these will be placed in a box by the doorstep at the left of Henry House, 189 Heene Road, Worthing, BN11 4NN.

Many thanks to Karen Simporis who has kindly offered her doorstep as a collection point!

The seed box shall be there from Friday 2nd April until the end of the month, unless we run out sooner of course. I shall be regularly topping up when needed.

If making a donation please can you place this in an envelope marked “seeds” and put it through Karen’s door (please don’t leave it in the seed box). If you are not sure how much to donate, we would suggest 50p-£1 per packet, but please feel free to give what you wish! It will all help to boost TTW’s ever depleting funds for our general running costs, which our annual Seed Swap event normally helps to cover every year.
