A great opportunity exists for Petworth to use it’s rich heritage and wonderful buildings to encourage visitors to enjoy the old town with a new experience. The hard part is respecting the old and yet still encouraging an attractive, modern interpretation. Getting this right will go a long way to giving Petworth a successful future.

New initiatives include:-

  • Working with ‘Be the Change’ to provide guidance to young people who are starting to think about their future career. Six Petworth based companies have kindly agreed to sponsor a group of 15 students from Midhurst Rother College to fully explore their potential.

  • Improve mobile connectivity within the town

  • A Click & Collect Centre

  • Establish computer training sessions to improve basic computer skills (available to all age groups)

  • Collaborating with The Prince's Trust to raise funds for local young people to enrol in the Trusts training programmes
