Midhurst shops to open later

MIDHURST shops are opening on Sundays in December as their customers begin to tackle their Christmas shopping lists.

One of the leaders of the initiative is manager of Costa Coffee Russell Hopwood: “I contacted fellow traders and we held a meeting earlier this month,” he said.

“Everyone has been very responsive and it means, essentially that people will be able to do all their Christmas shopping in the town.”

More than 20 shops have signed up to the scheme and will be open on Sundays December 4, 11 and 18 from 10am until 4pm.

“All shops will be displaying a poster to promote this which will include the names of all the shops that are open for business,” said Mr Hopwood.
