Midhurst and Petworth residents offered help with TV switch

ACTION in rural Sussex is to mobilise an army of charities and volunteers to help people across the Midhurst and Petworth area make the switch to digital TV.

The switch is due to start in the Meridian area on February 29 next year.

A series of events and presentations giving advice on how to switch over are being organised.

Jeremy Leggett, chief executive of Action in rural Sussex, said: “It will be straightforward for many, but others will need help, practical advice or reassurance.”

Digital UK will soon be holding roadshows to provide further face-to-face advice for anyone who needs it.
