Firearms & Ammunition surrender - From Monday 10 November until Friday 21 November Sussex Police and Surrey Police are inviting members of the public to surrender unwanted items so they can be disposed of safely. The maximum jail term for illegal gun possession is life. This now includes anyone who is storing antique firearms or a weapon for someone else - obsolete weapons. Police believe many gun owners may not realise the weapons they have could be illegal or the danger they pose if they fall into the wrong hands.

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
