Volunteer to help find a vaccine for Covid 19
Join the national effort and sign up for the
NHS COVID-19 vaccine research registry
. Be part of the fightback against the virus by volunteering to be contacted by researchers to take part in COVID-19 vaccine research.
There are a number of vaccines being identified, but only large-sca studies can give researchers the information needed about how effective they are.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is working with the NHS and aims to recruit as many people as possible onto the registry, which will allow people to be put in touch with the vaccine studies in the coming months.
Researchers are looking for people from all backgrounds, ages and parts of the UK - including both people with or without existing health conditions - to take part in vaccine studies, to make sure that any vaccines developed will work for everyone.
The service is available to anyone aged 18 or over, living in the UK. There is no obligation to join in any study, if you are contacted. But by taking part, you could help researchers find vaccines to protect us all more quickly - which in turn could help the NHS and save lives.

Parish Council Accounts 2020/2021
Each year a smaller authority’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by Smaller Authorities’ Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with this notice. As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.
Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. More information on how to access the accounts is
Consultation on Beach Chalet Letting Policy
In response to a request from Rottingdean Parish Council to move to a 5 year fixed term license for all licensees, a consultation on Brighton and Hove City Council's beach chalet letting policy has been announced and can be accessed via the link here:
BHCC are seeking the views of chalet tenants and those who would like to rent a chalet in order to inform a report for the Tourism Equalities Communities and Culture Committee (TECC). The consultation period runs until Sunday 27 September and the report will be presented to the TECC Committee on 19 November.
0n 31 October 2017 a study of Traffic travelling eastward from Brighton by East Sussex Traffic Monitoring Unit, was commissioned by the Parish Council.
The results tell us that at peak times the queue from Brighton towards Rottingdean stretches beyond Greenways roundabout past the speed camera towards Roedean holding on average, in the busy period, 342 vehicles. Such lengthy queues impact on more than just the congestion on the A259 but also affects the flow in the High Street and has a knock on impact in the AQMA. The Parish Council continues to work with BHCC to seek ways to improve matters.
