So after what many retailers always describe as their slowest month, we move into February surveying those shops which managed to make it through the harshest of trading periods.

Unfortunately for some if you don’t get Christmas right then it’s make or break come January, and it’s always a sad time as we say goodbye to some of our trading partners around the town.

On a brighter note we some another amazing Town Centre Initiative events lined up for everyone in Worthing and beyond this year.

Some dates for your diary include a fantastic three-day French market over the Easter holidays, an Italian market in June, the return of the Sunny Worthing Urban Beach, and of course the International Birdman event in July.

This will all be topped off by a fantastic two-day food festival in September.

On top of this you can add all the Rotary carnivals, classic car and bus shows, seafront fairs and so much more.

As a seaside town it’s important to have a broad range of things to do while you visit the town, and from Easter onwards there looks to be something unique and interesting going on almost every weekend!
