Hangleton Food Bank
The Hangleton & West Blatchington Foodbank is an independently run Foodbank, with a management committee made up of volunteers from two local churches – St Peters’ West Blatchington and St Georges’ R C Church. Its aim is to help individuals and families in urgent need, access short term support – in terms of food, but also money advice, energy advice and community support.
Clients are referred to the Foodbank by a professional organisation, for example a Health Visitor, Social Worker, Housing Officer or Advice agency and are offered the opportunity to obtain money advice from Moneyadviceplus, and energy advice from BHESCo. The mental health charity MIND also visit the Foodbank once a month to offer support and advice.

St Peters’ West Blatchington is involved with a number of local schools, in particular Aldrington C E Primary School in its parish where it takes an active role.
It is also an affiliated church to Kings School which straddles its parish boundary.
