We don't usually hold an event in January but for 2019 we have arranged for two councillors from Chichester DC to come to Midhurst to listen to questions from people 'North of the Downs'.  Has this ever happened before?  We are not aware of any previous visits.  This is your big chance to ask the questions that really bug you.  More details in our 'News' section, and please let us have your questions now!
