HANDBELL ringers from Bognor Regis supplied some of the entertainment at a care provider’s first birthday.

The musical females appeared as Climping-based Crossroads Care South Central celebrated its anniversary in style.

It is a year since the organisation became a network partner of the newly-formed Carers Trust.

The party at Arundel Town Hall marked that event and highlighted achievements of the past 12 months. They have included an exceptional rating from the Care Quality Commission.

Eric Geddes, chief executive of Crossroads Care South Central, said: “It has been wonderful to gather some of our supporters and celebrate our achievements with Carers Trust in such a beautiful setting as Arundel Town Hall.

“There is more we can do to support carers in the community, including young carers, who are often forgotten members of a family.

“We have built great foundations of care through our well-trained support workers and reporting systems and will continue to build.”

The venue was supplied by the mayor of Arundel’s charity enterprise. Guests included West Sussex County Council leader Louis Goldsmith and Arundel mayor, Cllr Michael Tu.
