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 this week’s Worthing Herald for all the latest on how the storms this week impacted on the area – 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’s 15 per cent of 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.
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.
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.
