The Oving and District News for Spring 2021 has been delivered and includes the Neighbourhood Plan Supplement.
Both documents are now accessible via the links on the Oving and District News Page, here:
Following the notice posted by Highways England in the Chichester Observer on 25/2/2021[I can’t find a link on their website, unfortunately], WSCC were approached and provided the following response:
“There are no plans for the works to start in the next couple of weeks. The plan is for the Shopwyke junction realignment to be done first to allow traffic to be diverted through the new spine roads and then follow straight after with the Oving junction works. However there is a another development site (Redrow Homes) on the other side of Shopwyke Road and they need road space to run a foul rise main up Shopwyke Road straight through the realigned junction. So it has been agreed that they will get road space first and then the Shopwyke junction will be undertaken and then the Oving junction works. At this point I would say that it is likely that the Oving Junction will not be able to be closed until the end of June at the earliest.
Therefore the Oving junction works are still some months away and Cala need to produce a comms plan in advance of starting. I have had confirmation from HE that the Traffic Order for the banned movements has been made. HE still need to get a S278 in place with Cala and a S4 Agreement with us for the Oving junction works.
With respect to the transition and safety concerns Cala have stated that they are working on some traffic management ideas and will communicate those shortly. They are hoping to utilise the website previously used to update everyone.”
The above is in relation to the original Order posted on 20/08/2020:
Are you looking for a new challenge, with part-time hours in your local community?
Are you a good communicator who likes helping people?
Are you a good organiser? Then this could be the role for you!
Oving Parish Council is currently recruiting for a Community Support Worker to continue an established parish project. The ideal candidate should be positive, compassionate, and caring, ideally with a background in health care, social care or teaching. A knowledge of the benefit system and local authorities would be beneficial however the ability to reach out to people and gain their confidence is paramount. You will be supporting adults with complex needs and running a monthly tea party at Oving Jubilee Hall (when COVID restrictions allow).
This role has previously been staffed by volunteers, however given the increasing challenges that we face in today’s environment, we would now like to employ someone to lead and extend the role.
The probation period for this role is three months with the intention of this becoming permanent for the right candidate. You will work six hours a day, two days a week but may need to be flexible to meet demand. Salary is commensurate with experience. The successful candidate will require a DBS check.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!

Update from the Oving Jubilee Hall today:
As we are in Tier 4, sadly our lovely Hall has to close its doors again. So sorry to all our regulars who will have to wait, hopefully not too long, before we can open up and welcome you back. Let’s cross our fingers that we will also be welcoming the parties and weddings which are planned for the Spring, Summer and later in 2021.
