THE school holidays have started, meaning one thing – the summer is well and truly upon us.
Of course, the storms would make you think otherwise (see the Herald today for all the latest on how storms impacted on the area this week) but it is summer.
So, in this week’s Herald, we bring you a 24-page Shopping and Summer Savings supplement.
The pull-out, free with the Herald, includes offers at restaurants, shops and days out.
There is 15 per cent off fish and chips (over £15 spend) in Broadwater, money off at the Look and Sea Centre in Littlehampton and special discounts at a range of shops.
There’s also a round-up of events and a guide to holidays in the UK if people have yet to book a break.
Read the story of a Shoreham toddler who survived a 25ft fall from a second-floor window with barely a scratch.
Find out the latest news on travellers and how one Shoreham head teacher took swift action when they invaded the school playing field.
There is a new bus service for the Adur Valley and Scouts from that area are busy raising money for a trip of a lifetime.
On Shoreham Beach an improvement project has been delayed, thieves are targeting rare plants and vandals are back in Old Fort car park.
See the Southwick students who performed in their end-of-term concert and find out about another Southwick school which has won an InBloom award.
Elsewhere in the Herald this week is the chance to win a fabulous iPad mini – and we have a brilliant ticket offer for our readers to see Rime, a show combining circus, theatre and
dance, which is showing at the Pavilion Theatre, Worthing, next week.
It is also time to nominate the unsung heroes in our community as the sixth Herald and Gazette Community Stars awards are launched this week.
This week, the Herald really does bring history back to life, as well.
To mark next Monday’s 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, we have teamed up with the West Sussex County Council Library Service to bring you the news as it happened a century ago.
With the help of an army of volunteers, the library service has been able to preserve four years of county newspapers for future generations.
So, inside the Herald’s nostalgia section this week, we reproduce the edition of the Worthing Gazette, which carried the dramatic first news of war, over a week after it was declared.
Pick up your Herald today and you can see the very pages printed in the Worthing Gazette on Wednesday, August 12, 1914.
