The Midhurst Society aims to preserve, protect and improve local features of historic or community interest. It promotes high standards of planning and architecture. In liaison with public authorities, it seeks to enhance the local environment and amenities.  Above all, we strive to make Midhurst a better place to live, work and enjoy.

A biannual magazine "Midhurst Magazine" is published to encourage interest in our past, present and future - not only in Midhurst but also in our associated villages: Bepton, Cocking, Easebourne, Elsted, Heyshott, Lodsworth, Stedham, Iping, Trotton, Chithurst, West Lavington and Woolbeding.

Our next talk will be held at the South Downs Memorial Hall, North Street, on Thursday 21 July at 7.30 pm.  The talk will be presented by Canine Partners - a charity based at Heyshott  - which trains dogs to help people with physical handicaps.. The dogs undertake a specialist two-year training programme, which begins from selection at seven to eight weeks old, after which they are able to help people with physical handicaps.. They spend 12 to 14 months in puppy training with a volunteer, followed by four months' advanced training at one of our centres. At all stages training is fun and reward-based.  The evening will include a demonstration by one of the dogs.
