Schools have taken their fight for fairer funding to the most famous front door in the country – 10 Downing Street.

In today’s County Times, thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused when thieves ripped lead off the roof of a church, a woman whose brother was killed by a drink-driver has told of her family’s heartbreak, a woman died in a ‘terrible tragedy’ after falling from a multi-storey car park, a Loxwood man and a Horsham teenager were among 11 people arrested after ‘drug paraphernalia’ was discovered in a flat and a road dubbed by locals as one of the worst in the district for potholes will be resurfaced in a week’s time.

Also in this week’s paper, four candidates looking to become the newest member of Horsham District Council have been picked, a woman ‘died in vain’ because a mental health trust failed to learn lessons and prevent other killings, her son has said, major changes to taxes paid by businesses could see large rises for West Sussex household bills, part of an indoor athletics facility in Broadbridge Heath could be retained as part of a council U-turn, plus a woman who taught herself to crochet has made 1,000 beautiful hand-crafted poppies for the annual poppy appeal.

In the South Downs edition an unsuccessful attempt to fight off a High Court challenge to village neighbourhood plan is set to cost Horsham District Council at least £28,000, a parish council has voted unanimously against an application for a new surgery and housing at the Glebe Field and a council employee has admitted stealing thousands of pounds while running markets across the area.
