Paul O’Brien, owner of I Love Candy in Bath Place, who organised the event alongside Sharon Leppard, who runs Goring Road Farmers’ Market, said: “It was very good, there were lots of families out.

“We did an Easter egg hunt around all the local independent shops which went really well.

“Lots of people discovered shops they didn’t know were in Worthing.”

Visitors browsed 40 stalls and enjoyed attractions such as a mobile petting zoo.
