Vitamin Sea- Arts and Wellbeing Project

It's been an absolute privilege to work on the Vitamin Sea wellbeing arts project at Nyewood CE Infant School with @_artswork_ , through the Arun Inspires Programme in partnership with Arun District Council.

Art is never complete until it is shared. Among many things, it can help us feel and express emotions, or simply be ......... beautiful to the eye.


See the amazing art the children have been creating here: https://sites.google.com/view/vitamin-sea/home
Please let as many people enjoy this wonderful work as you can by sharing with people that you know that will enjoy and be inspired by it.

Summer 2018

As the heat wave continues, what better to launch a new workshop- 'Vitamin Sea'- the curative powers of the sea. This was a great success with 90 Year 3 students, who were studying the 'seaside- then and now' and how like  Victorians, we still use it today to day to help our mental and physical well-being, but in many different ways. We all even had time to learn to surf and paint pebbles. Year 3 are now ... all the the beach! To see more details about the workshop click here. We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in securing a donation from the Midhurst Lions Club for a grant of £500. This will support visits to young people in and around Midhurst with our workshops. Thank you to Midhurst Lions for their support.

What is a CIC?

We often get asked 'What is CIC?' So we thought we'd explain ... A CIC is a type of company for people who want to be involved in a business that benefits the community. This means a CIC is not for personal gain, so directors and employers will not make millions of pounds from the CIC. Instead the money goes to the community. But most importantly a CIC has as an asset lock which means that it cannot be asset stripped for private gain. A CIC also needs to show the Regulator that it benefits the community and does not exist for political aims. CICs work in every sector, including: business, services, childcare, education, energy, environment, health and social care, housing, media, media, sports and the arts. As a CIC are able to seek grants and funding to support their community activities and welcome donations and support from Individuals, Corporates and Legacies.
