HEROIC stories from the area’s D-Day veterans – both military and civilian – are at the fore this week’s Littlehampton Gazette – out tomorrow (Thursday, June 12), priced 80p.
There’s everything from one soldier’s terrifying tale of D-Day landings – with bullets and shells zipping over his head – to a Rustington woman’s fight to save Jewish infants from the Nazi death camps.
Also revealed in the paper is the vital role Rustington played in making the 1944 invasion a success.
And, sticking with a war-time theme, our fourth instalment of the First World War pullout has also been released.
Other news this week includes the latest update on The Littlehampton Academy, which has now been praised by education watchdogs Ofsted, for its ‘rapid improvement’.
There is also a shocking report about a man who was jailed for more than ten years for committing a ‘terrifying’ robber on a disabled 64-year-old.
But there’s plenty of good news, too, including a stunning four-page picture special of East Preston’s festival and carnival, as well as a preview of Rustington’s own carnival and procession.
Our popular nostalgia section has the latest column from the Arundel Museum. While the sports pages, as always, are packed with results and reports from the local sports-scene.
For all of this and much more, pick up your Gazette tomorrow.
