As regular readers of this column will notice, this isn’t the first time an ‘outsider’ has been mentioned as owning a Horsham business.

“Horsham Urban Council: Mr George Worthington, of High Road, Streatham, wrote applying for a petrol license for his garage at Albion and Springfield roads.

“The premises sometime since were used as a cinema theatre, and he asked for the consent of the Council to use the operating room at the end of the building and also the adjoining chimney as a store.”
