New traders to get official welcome to Midhurst

MIDHURST town councillors are to make personal visits to new shops in the town and send welcoming letters in a bid to encourage trade.

At a meeting of the finance and general purposes committee town councillors said they were delighted to see new businesses opening including Something Different in the former Barringtons estate agent premises, at the bottom of North Street, and Arnage, in West Street.

They believed it would be a boost to new trade to make contact and offer support.
