Message from the Chair

 

Welcome to Lancing Parish Council's website. Lancing is the largest village in the country, and we are always happy to welcome new residents, visitors and holidaymakers. Situated on the south coast between Brighton and Worthing, with the beautiful South Downs as our backcloth, and good rail and road links, Lancing is an easy and enjoyable place to visit.

 

We are currently in the process of regeneration and, in partnership with Adur District Council, 'The Lancing Vision' has been produced. Following extensive public and stakeholder consultation, the Vision is a document outlining how we want our village to look in the future.

 

Lancing Beach Green, situation directly north of the beach, is considered to be Lancing's entertainment hub and offers a large green space for picnics and games, a children's play area, a health and fitness area, a barbeque area, a refreshment kiosk, an inviting restaurant, a gym, beach showers and modern and well maintained public toilets. It will soon also boast a new skatepark.

 

Lancing Parish Council aims to:

  • Make its community the focus of all it does
  • Listen to, and communicate with its residents in a wide variety of ways
  • Find ways to constantly improve its business acumen in its provision of high quality and cost effective services for its community
  • Support and work in partnership with voluntary and independent organisations for the betterment of everyone living in, working and visiting Lancing
  • Promote 'ownership' of and pride in our Village by identifying and harnessing the skills, knowledge and experience of its residents, and in so doing nurture and strengthen its community spirit

GORILLA CIRCUS ON LANCING BEACH GREEN
1st June 2016

 

We welcome the UK's only outdoor Flying Trapeze school, Gorilla Circus, to Lancing Beach Green this summer.

 

Anyone with a taste for adventure can come along and have a swing on one of the only Flying Trapezes in the country open to the public. The classes involve completing a simple trick on a hanging bar, then a trick on the Flying Trapeze and towards the end of the class you can aim to be caught by a catcher on a separate swinging bar.

 

With their youngest student to date aged 8 years and the oldest student 78 years, outdoor Flying Trapeze is for anyone looking for a fun alternative.

 

For those not wishing to take a class, be astounded by the Gorilla Circus Flying Trapeze Troupe performing their high-flying acrobatic spectacular in the evenings. The performers will flip and twist, catching each other whilst high in the air, and as the tricks get harder, and the performers fly higher, you too will be blown away by this thrilling troupe.

 

Free show times:

27 & 28 August - 8pm

3 September - 8pm

4 September - 5pm
