About the Website

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Funtington Parish website is provided by the Parish Council and has been designed by Connective Solutions together with Councillors David Ash and Sheena King. Other members of the working group are Barry Bradley (Web Master), Geoffrey Boys and Jo Laird; the latter two being volunteers.

In addition to providing lots of useful local information, we hope that it will increase interest in the Parish as a whole and generate lively debate about the work of your Parish Council. Residents will be able to post their views about Parish issues. Our vision for this website is that it should be relevant, interesting and up to date. Most importantly, we hope that you will use it!  We would also welcome input on topics of general interest both from within and outside the Parish if relevant to our readers.  Indeed, almost anything goes!

Currently we need Village Editors for Funtington and West Ashling.   We don’t want this to become a millstone, so the more help we have the better it will work.  If this doesn’t appeal to, you may know a neighbour/friend/child who may like to get involved.

Editors, working from home, will be able to update pages, create posts and upload media.

Photographs on the site have been kindly provided by

Please get in touch via the Contact Us button if you would like to do your bit – either as an Editor of an existing page or to promote a group or club with its own page on the website.

    I have recently come across some ancestors buried in Funtington. The Chalcrafts. Would it be possible to request a photo of their graves?

  3. Geoffrey Boys says:

    Charles and Caroline Chalcraft lived at Adsdean Lodge during the mid 19th century where Charles was an agricultural labourer and some of their children worked in the garden. Charles died in the workhouse in 1880 and his widow Caroline was living in Church Lane Funtington in 1881 and died in 1886. I expect that the vicar of Funtington erected the tombstone which is recorded on the list of tombstones in the churchyard. I am sure that it can be found but I do not have a picture of it

    Hi my name is PCSO Richard Moorey and I work for Sussex Police I am currently making contact with groups in West Sussex offering a presentation to in relation to scams and fraud. This is a presentation about Scams and Rogue Traders, It will take between 45 mins to 1 hour (could be slightly longer if there are a lot of questions).
    I will first talk about a number of the most prevalent scams these being courier fraud, computer fraud and investment fraud. I will then talk about door to door rouge traders, how to get rid of them and a short input on trading standards.
    Finally I have a short DVD of approximately 15 minutes giving real life examples of victims of fraud (this I find to be very impactive).
    At the end of the presentation I will give out scam books to the attendee’s along with door stickers which will put off any cold caller who comes knocking.

    There is no charge for this service and I look forward to hearing from you.
    Please could you forward this onto any other group who might be interested
    Many Thanks PCSO Rich Moorey

    Could i please ask if your parish councils have had any contact with Velo South. It appears that they will be closing the road through the villages for purpose of a for profit cycle event. The required TTRO are due to be published soon and am wondering if the council will be raising an objection to this inconvenience which has yet to be drawn to any parishioners.
    They will be applying to close the roads from 0900am till 1800 on Sunday 23 September.
