Arthur Cooper, former Parish Councillor for 45 years died 27/6/2015
Message from Cliff Archer, Chairman Chidham & Hambrook Parish Council......... Posted June 27
I very much regret that I have to inform you that Arthur Cooper died today, Saturday 27 June 2015, having suffered a cardiac arrest. Arthur was a real friend to countless people, myself and my family included, and was always ready to come to the aid of anybody who was in need of help. Arthur served as a staunch, hard-working Parish Councillor for about 45 years until the May Elections this year. It was completely in character that Arthur continued to be available to help the Parish Council right up to his death, despite his poor health in recent months. I will remember Arthur as always having a smile on his face, even when struggling against difficulties. Our hearts go out to Arthur’s family and friends who I know will miss him greatly. Cliff Archer, Chairman Chidham & Hambrook Parish Council

Death of Barry Mann, Clerk to Chidham & Hambrook Parish Council

It is with great regret that I have to report that Barry Mann, our esteemed Parish Clerk, died last Sunday, 3 May 2015. He was not only a superb and highly conscientious Clerk, but also a great and kindly man and valued friend. I am sure that the Parish Councillors and all who interacted with him will miss him greatly.

Spoof News section

(or why you should not believe everything you read on the internet)
What is this word spoof? It has been defined as
1 Nonsense; tomfoolery.
2 A hoax.
3 A gentle satirical imitation; a light parody.
4 The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
But which is it? Tricky, huh?
If you have a Spoof News Scoop, please send it to us, and we will do our best to include it today, tomorrow, sometime or ......well it depends on our lawyers, who we pay handsomely for their 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' advice.

Spoof news
Currently there is not a lot of spoof news. Sometimes there just isn't any news, but it doesn't stop the BBC from filling a half hour slot with no news and repeating the 'no news' every hour on the hour. Here at Chidham and Hambrook, we tell it like it is.
However, we promise that just as soon as one of us gets round to writing some news, we will let you have it, up to the minute, just as its breaking, raw, unvarnished, cliche free, and without any attempt to hide the earth shattering implications for the local community.
Disappointed?
Have a look at the spoof news archive
