On behalf of Cats Protection’s Horsham and District Branch we would like to express how much we welcome the government’s announced intention to increase sentences to a maximum of five years for serious crimes against animals.
As a declared supporter of Horsham District Year of Culture in 2019, I do hope that the County Times will seek to promote the case for a replacement memorial to Horsham’s most prestigious son, the romantic poet - Percy Bysshe Shelley - who was born at Field Place near Broadbridge Heath in 1792.
I was interested to read Derek Palmer’s letter in last week’s County Times bemoaning the lack of interest shown by Horsham District Council in what he calls the ‘fag end’ of the district, and asking to be released to join the more progressive Adur and Worthing councils.

As Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, I very much welcomed two contributions to the letters page on 31 August – ‘Critical role in home defence’ and ‘Memorial to poet Shelley’, where the authors shared their ideas on how, as a district, we might celebrate part of our rich heritage.
