Having lived in Worthing for just over five years, it saddens me to see the gradual deterioration of the town centre and surrounding streets.

It shows signs of neglect.

Everywhere has become dirty and litter-strewn, with cracked or broken paving.

Do our local MPs or councillors ever walk into our town centre and surrounding streets?

I have just read that Horsham District Council has received £500,000 from West Sussex County Council’s £50million kick-start pot, for updating West Street, Horsham, and a further £80,000 for repairs to the Carfax, Horsham.

What have our councillors gained from this pot for Worthing?

I suggest we could do with the remaining £40.5m.
