EXCLUSIVE local news, special reports, nostalgia, sports and offers – that is just some of the content inside today’s Lancing – out today, priced 80p.

This week, the Herald reveals concerns over county council cuts to day services and fears some of our day centres could be under threat.

We also have a warning from the fire service to ‘hoarders’ who are putting their homes at risk of fire.

Parents explain how they feel misled by their children’s school as it faces pressure to become an academy, and we talk to Lancing Parish Council’s newly-elected chairman, aged just 21, about his vision for the village.

The Adur Festival will bring strange creatures to Lancing and Sompting on Saturday at a special launch event, and we have a preview of what is in store on what promises to be a fun-packed day for all the family.

Former Worthing Mayor Bob Smytherman and Adur Council chairman Mike Mendoza are to team up once more as a comedy duo, and we speak to the family of 100-year-old Lillian Smith who celebrated her special day with a surprise party.

Sompting news includes a kitchen refit for the Big Local Hub, and the parish council’s plans for the future of the disused waste site at Halewick Lane.

There are some court cases and local crimes reported in this week’s paper, but also lots of good news including the success of a fashion show held in Worthing, which raised vital funds for the Sussex MS treatment centre in Southwick.

We have pages packed with pictures from local events and you can read the latest views of our readers and columnists.

Our popular nostalgia section has a fascinating feature on Worthing’s old Town Hall , complete with old photos.

And the sports pages are, as always, packed with results and reports from the local sports-scene, including a report on a six-a-side tournament at Worthing Football Club which saw Lancing reporter Joe Riddle in action for the Herald Hounds.

As for offers and competitions, we have a chance to win one of four family tickets to Drusillas Park.

We also have details of our cute kids competition and your chance to nominate your favourite salon in our salon of the year competition.

For all of this and much more, pick up your Herald today.
