Grant for MADhurst from councillors

THE nine-day MADhurst Festival, which kicks off on August 19, has been given a £750 boost by Midhurst town councillors.

At a recent meeting they decided to award the grant towards the cost of putting on this year’s festival, which will be the third since it was launched in 2010.

Vice chairman of the town council John Quilter told fellow councillors: “This is just the kind of event that Midhurst benefits hugely from and I think we should be prominent in supporting it.”
