A teenage boy was attacked and robbed in Horsham Park in a shocking incident last week.

In today’s County Times, calls have been made for improved safety measures in the park following the incident, a serious crash on the A24 has prompted calls to remove a bus stop, and thieves broke into a popular family destination, stealing thousands of pounds of equipment.

Meanwhile, we analyse what this year will bring for shopping in Horsham town centre, a Star Wars Stoomtrooper has described playing an iconic role, and Horsham FC are plotting their next move as they search for a new permanent home.

In the South Downs edition, a young woman was hurt after her car flipped on an icy road, a doctors’ surgery is ‘struggling’ after a neighbouring practice closed, and two young men are hoping to break a world record on an around the world trip.
