Some sad news for Southwick this week as Health Scented, which has worked in the community of Southwick, north side, for 14 years has closed its doors. Judith Potelle, managing director of Health Scented, said: “It is with much regret that myself and the management committee have made the decision to close the charity. I have enjoyed working with the local community and various groups over the years and I would like to thank our many loyal clients, staff, volunteers and every one who has supported us over the years.” Judith was presented with a lovely bouquet and all staff, volunteers and clients enjoyed a lovely vintage tea, provided by Holly.
