THE BBC Sussex Countywide Tour will be making its way through Midhurst and Petworth to mark 30 years of serving the country.

The tour will go across Sussex throughout September, visiting 30 places in 30 days.

Reporters will be out and about every day during the Breakfast and Mid-Morning shows, visiting towns and villages across the county.

There will be special giveaways and a chance for listeners to meet the teams.

The first stop on Sunday, September 1, saw reporter Simon Jenkins visit Chichester. He was live at the Cathedral where the Dean gave the BBC Sussex Countywide Tour his blessing.

The tour will then visit Billingshurst on September 5, Petworth on September 12 and Midhurst on September 24.

Managing Editor of BBC Sussex, Sara David, said: “This tour is the perfect way to mark a historic and exciting year for BBC Sussex. We hope as many listeners as possible come along to meet us.”
