VITAL repairs are set to be made to a 19th century village library, as talks continue over its future.
Angmering Parish Council announced just over a year ago that it had approached West Sussex County Council about the possibility of taking over the library, in Arundel Road, which also houses the Angmering Children and Family Centre.
No decisions have yet been taken about the building, which was previously the William Older School, but an inspection revealed essential maintenance work would have to be carried out and plans have now been submitted to Arun District Council.
