On Your Doorstep

Gary and Sharon have been working really closely with Adur and Worthing council on a new ‘On Your Doorstep’ campaign and it is nearing its launch……..

On your doorstep

“The vision of the campaign seeks to engage, enthuse and entice the people of Adur and Worthing to build a sense of pride and passion about their place, enabling them to increase the number of visits and spend locally”

In a nutshell, we want to encourage local people to visit local businesses and attractions – things that are on their doorstep…..

If you are in the Adur and Worthing area and want to raise the profile of your business with local people; share and learn through the experience of others; automatically get free inclusion in all marketing materials for the campaign and be able to network with other local business through events and the LinkedIn group then email tourism@adur-worthing.gov.uk

Summer is always a busy time for us at the fort, not only with our events, but with hosting groups for visits to the fort as well. Yesterday we had the absolute pleasure of welcoming Superstar Arts to Shoreham Fort for a mini tour.

Adur Voluntary Action visited the fort for a picnic to thank their volunteers for all their time, commitment and dedication (If any of our supporters don’t know what amazing work the AVA does then have a look at their website).

They can also be reached through the Lancing Village Action shop and the Sompting Big Local shop.
