Petworth Business Association receives funding

TOWN councillors are to give an £800 contribution to a £2440 Petworth Business Association project to buy 20 stalls for use at events in the town.

Town councillors will be able to use them rent free and it was pointed out this would save the council £300 a year in rent and solve the current problem of having to collect and return them.

Chris Kemp said: “I think this is a very good move for the town.”
