Time flies, so a gentle reminder about renewing your subscription to The Worthing Journal so every month in 2013 it is delivered direct to your doorstep.
Editor Paul Holden sincerely hopes readers have enjoyed the editions to date and vows to keep on improving Worthing’s best read, filled with history, gossip and current affairs. He could not do it without the support of subscribers and advertisers, who, mourning the loss of The Worthing Sentinel, have shown incredible support for, and faith in, The Journal.
January 2011’s edition, brought out in something of a rush, was 32 pages. Now it is up to 88 pages! The price for 2013 is exactly the same – £11 for 12 copies – surely the bargain of the year! A subscription, Holden humbly begs to suggest, would make an ideal Christmas present not only for you, but also friends and relatives who may not yet have joined The Sunny Worthing Journal Club. You can pay by cheque by downloading a subscription form, or pay with paypal from our Subscription page.

The Journal is a community magazine serving the good people of Worthing, and Holden very much hopes it is worthy of your continued support.
A celebration of Sunny Worthing for just £1 a month by former
Worthing Sentinel editor Paul Holden
Many people have expressed great sadness at the decision to cease publication of The Sentinel, but this is NOT the end of a paper which has championed Worthing for 11 years.
Having single-handedly written and edited The Sentinel since it began in January 2000, I have decided to continue it myself, providing residents of our fine old town with an unique mix of history, gossip, opinion, news and current affairs.
Thousands of readers were disappointed when The Sentinel changed from a monthly to a weekly publication. I am turning it back into a monthly, making it glossy, and giving it a new name, the Worthing Journal.
Despite the changes, the content will follow exactly the same format as The Sentinel. Readers often complained about The Sentinel being delivered one week, but not the next. To overcome this, I will guarantee personal delivery through your letter box.
To cover costs, the Worthing Journal will cost £1 per issue, or £11 a year subscription which will entitle readers to 12 issues. In return, I promise to relentlessly campaign for, and champion, Sunny Worthing, the best and most underrated town in England.
I am proposing to publish the first issue in early January. If you would like to reserve your copy, or have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to ring me on 01903 245674, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to my home address, 91 Alinora Crescent, Goring, Worthing, BN12 4HH.
I have always valued readers' feedback and would be very grateful for your views, good or bad, about the plans outlined above. In the meantime, please spread the word.
