Extra security added to St Johns Park and Clair Park pavilions

We've installed new security measures at two of our community pavilions in Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath to help deter criminals.

St John’s Park pavilion in Burgess Hill and Clair Park pavilion in Haywards Heath have experienced a number of break-ins over the past two years. The pavilions have been repeatedly targeted at night by vandals who have caused significant damage to the inside of the buildings.

We have fitted stronger uPVC windows and doors at both pavilions. Internal security screens have also been installed behind the windows and doors that users can slide across at night to provide an added deterrent to intruders when the buildings are closed.

The new windows and doors have been constructed to Secure by Design standards, an official UK Police flagship initiative that combines the principle of 'designing out crime' with physical security.

Your Energy SussexCouncils in Sussex have joined together to help local people to pay less for their gas and electricity.

The Your Energy Sussex initiative is led by West Sussex County Council, with support from local District and Borough Councils. There are no dividends to shareholders or bonuses to Directors because Your Energy Sussex is owned by Sussex Councils and, as a ‘not-for-profit’ company. Your Energy Sussex uses surplus income to help local people who are struggling to pay their energy bills.

In addition to providing cheap local energy, Your Energy Sussex invests in renewable energy projects and because the partnership uses local installers this creates investment and job opportunities for people across Sussex.

The latest industry figures show that just 25% of people changed their energy tariff or supplier in the last year. That means 75% of people are likely to be on the most expensive 'standard variable' tariff, paying way over the odds for their energy and could save up to £300 by switching.

We want more people in Mid Sussex to switch and pay less for their energy. Your Energy Sussex offers straightforward and honest advice to customers and energy prices that are always fair and competitive.
