Be happy and appreciative

A big thank you to the Johnston Press Group for allowing the Littlehampton Gazette to have a Bye Line Column for the First Citizen of Littlehampton.

Cllr Billy Blanchard-Cooper (our own BBC), to write on all things Littlehampton.

In this week’s column, Billy surpasses himself in visiting and promoting new and old businesses in the town. With this energetic promotion of the town and all the behind-the-scenes work by Littlehampton Town Council, we seem to be bringing life to Littlehampton, especially after the wonderful full-on activities by the previous year’s Mayor Cllr Ian Buckland.
