Arundel and South Downs MP Nick Herbert opened the new premises of Millstone Day Centre in Sayers Common on Friday (January 22).

The MP took part in the official opening ceremony alongside Peter Griffiths, West Sussex county councillor for Hurstpierpoint and Bolney.

They were joined by visitors and staff who had gathered at the centre in Mill Lane for the afternoon celebrations.

Mr Herbert said: “I was delighted to open the Millstone Day Centre’s new building.

“I was made to feel very welcome and enjoyed meeting the team, customers and visitors.”

The day centre works with customers who have learning difficulties, autism and mental health issues.

The facilities help to support independent living through a range of activities that develop skills and encourage both self-esteem and confidence.

A growth in customer numbers meant that the day centre needed to move to a larger building so that they could provide more activities and sessions. Mr Herbert and Mr Griffiths were given a tour of the new facilities that now include a sensory room, IT suite and kitchen area.
