Steyning Herald out on June 12

STEYNING Festival 2014 has been called outstanding, amazing and unbelievable.

High praise indeed. The Steyning Herald has a picture special in today’s paper, rounding up the fortnight.

This weekend see’s the start of the very first Worthing WOW (World Of Words) festival.

The week-long festival aims to celebrate the joy of words through poetry, film, theatre and books, with 40 events taking place over 14 venues.

Pick up your Steyning Herald today for a full list of the events – from June 15-22 – and a preview story.

We also reveal the winner in the festival’s search for a Mr Darcy.

With Jane Austen in mind, in this week’s Looking Back pull-out – free with the Herald – readers can discover details of the author’s time in the town and how it inspired her writings.

Another picture special not to be missed is the Hollywood film crew at Shoreham Airport. Some stunning shots are in the paper, including those kindly supplied by readers.

Also in this week’s Herald, readers can read a poem from one D-Day veteran on the letters’ page, find out the latest on solar farm plans for Steyning and hear how to help Beeding in Bloom.

There’s also a round-up of roadworks in the area as well as warning from police and the fire service on our essential information page.

This is as well as all the latest news, entertainment, letters, food reviews, community noticeboard, vet column, sport and more.

Pick up your Herald tomorrow, priced 80p, or from 60p if you subscribe.
