Salvage Hunters: The Restorers

Salvage Hunters: The Restorers are opening applications for the next series up to the public.

If you have any damaged antiques, precious family heirlooms or bizarre curios in need of restoration, we want to hear from you.

Whether it be a 10 ft bronze statue, a mid-century designer sofa or a 19th century refectory table we have a restorer who can fix it. We want to discover the history behind your item and why you want to have it restored. If you have a suitable item, or know someone who has never quite got around to sending their piece off for restoration, now is the perfect time to nudge them in the right direction.

All applications should be made online:

Prepare for Cold Weather

coldAlert is a free service for Sussex residents, which alerts you to severe cold weather events before they happen.

coldAlerts are sent directly to you 24 to 48 hours before a cold weather event is expected. You can choose how you receive coldAlerts either via mobile App, text, automated voice message (to your home phone) or by email – it’s easy and free!

Receiving a coldAlert can help you prepare by prompting you to heating your home, to stock up on supplies of hot food and drinks and medication, it can also act as a reminder to wear extra layers of clothing when going outside in the forecast cold conditions.

Who should register for coldAlerts? Carers of elderly relatives or friends, parents of young children and people with health conditions (e.g. arthritis, heart or lung conditions) that worsen in severe cold weather, could benefit from receiving coldAlerts.

To receive coldAlerts simply download the airAlert App (from the App Store or Google Play and subscribe to the coldAlert service), register at or call 01273 484337.

The service is managed by the Sussex Air Quality Partnership and funded by the Sussex local authorities & Public Health.
