18 April - SHRA AGM –
Our AGM is usually held in April or May. It would be great if this
year we were able to hold it in the community centre and we are
endeavouring to obtain a completion date to see if this will be
feasible. If necessary, we could hold off until June. Whatever is
decided, we shall give members at least 4 weeks’ notice as
stipulated in our constitution.

13 April - Wastewater
Treatment Works - Early this year SHRA raised the
issue of foul smells emanating from the Wastewater Treatment Works.
In February, Southern Water wrote to local residents with
update about the work
being undertaken to repair and upgrade the facility. Last month,
SHRA committee members and local councillors attended a presentation
at the works.
Southern Water said that unpleasant smells from the
works can not ever be eliminated, but they were confident that the
enhancements will bring about a noticeable improvement. The work is
due to complete in about a years’ time (mid 2019).
Southern Water have supplied an interesting presentation about the
treatment works (it is larger than you may think), containing photos of the work being
undertaken, most of it underground. It is available on the SHRA web site - click here...
The latest info on the upgrade can be found on the Southern Water website:
Southern Water again stated that they had received very few complaints about the
smell. Should the smell return, please complain to Southern Water
on: 0330 303 0223, or you can leave a comment on their web site
Their postal address is: Southern Water, PO Box 41, Worthing,
BN13 3NZ. And let us know that you've complained.
