Midhurst’s former library prepares for a new chapter

REFURBISHMENT work at Midhurst’s former library in Knockhundred Row is in full swing.

And Midhurst town councillors hope it will be up and running as a new community facility early next year.

Members hope to be able to move their council office to the former library and hold their meetings there from the end of November.

In the meantime students from Chichester College are helping to redecorate the main rooms and volunteer working parties are being held to carry out other improvements.

Town councillors are also hoping to make the provision of new toilet facilities a priority on their refurbishment programme.

When complete it will also provide space for the rural town coordinator Melanie Burgoyne and possibly Midhurst Museum as well as meeting space for community groups.
