Valued items of jewellery were stolen from homes in Horsham and Southwater this month - with police urging people to safeguard their homes this winter.

In today’s County Times, one of Horsham’s youngest councillors has criticised secret council advisory groups, research from a resident has revealed a possible £6m error in potential funding for affordable homes, local MPs have written to the Prime Minister calling for fairer school funding, and we interview a chef set for stardom.

The success of a vineyard has been celebrated, we preview the town’s Halloween events, and the clocks are turned back for a look at Collyer’s in the 1960s.

Meanwhile a teenage cadet has picked up a prestigious award, the leader of the county council has spent a day as a carer, and a budding poet has seen her talents recognised.

In our South Downs edition, there is an update on a Pulborough group’s battle against low flying aircraft, a ‘ridiculous’ decision to remove bottle banks has been criticised, and two choirs are collaborating for a special performance.
