Plans set to change the face of Horsham’s town centre are expected to get the go-ahead next week.

In today’s County Times, a resident protesting against yellow lines being painted along a Horsham road has used cars to block the installation, a former Horsham man has been jailed for serious sex offences involving children, tributes have been paid to a popular young couple who died in a crash, a swimming club which has been teaching children and adults to swim for more than 80 years is facing closure, plus the magic of Christmas has started to arrive in Horsham.

Also in this week’s paper, patients and customers have rallied behind a Horsham pharmacy amid fears it could be under threat, a mum-of-three who has fought a heartbreaking battle to have a family is now launching a fight to stop an NHS fertility clinic from closing, a village was plunged into darkness after a power lines were damaged by a falling tree, fumes from a planned incinerator north of the town would be like ‘a sugar cube in Loch Ness’ and we launch the County Times Christmas campaign celebrating the wonderful work of our readers who do so much to support those less fortunate during the festive period.

In the South Downs edition, new charges in South Downs rural car parks are ‘cheaper than chips’ according to the council’s leader, several village bus routes are to be reduced or withdrawn, a Storrington surgery has been rated as ‘good’ in a recent Care Quality Commission report and Steyning is ‘fighting for survival’, a businesswoman has claimed.
