Excitement is building over a three-day music festival which comes to Horsham for the first time this summer.

In today’s County Times, we look ahead to the Big Kahuna festival following its announcement, a Michelin-starred restaurant badly damaged in a fire is set to reopen, and a battle has been launched to save a children’s swimming centre under threat of closure.

An academy has taken its first steps towards a ‘good’ Ofsted rating, a railway station footbridge has been removed for refurbishment, and an unsung community hero has picked up a prestigious award.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people were left without power during Storm Imogen, the government’s education minister met with West Sussex head teachers and will consider much-needed extra funding, and two new traders are set to open in Horsham town centre.

In the South Downs edition, parents and governors marched to convince the council to keep a school open, plans for a permanent Steyning skate park are still dividing the community, and Alan Titchmarsh is to star in a new television game show featuring Parham House and Gardens.
