Use them or lose them

LAST year, you were quite rightly inundated with letters of concern about the future of Worthing’s theatres and the effect of Tesco’s new Goring store on the excellent shops in Goring Road.

Now we know the outcome of both issues, we all need to replace protest with positive action in the future; with the theatres we should resist the temptation to stay at home and watch television, but make an effort to support the Wurlitzer organ, orchestral and band concerts, the plays, films and the many highly professional one-night performances and so help the profitability of our great venues.

And only by supporting the small businesses on Goring Road can we ensure their survival; it’s up to us – use them or lose them!
