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
