Children take the lead for Friends of Broadwater and Worthing Cemetery tour

Children dressed in costume will be leading a tour for Friends of Broadwater and Worthing Cemetery this weekend.

Children Bringing More History Alive is a new tour for 2019, lasting an hour or so.

Four boys and four girls will tell the stories of a well-known doctor, police superintendent, pub landlord and workhouse inmate who dared to complain about the quality of the potatoes he was served.
