Midhurst Happy Video

The Midhurst Happy Video – showcasing Midhurst as a great place to live and visit.

A huge THANK YOU to all involved, in so many different ways   Great job everyone!

The video was prepared between 14 March 2014, when we had our first meeting, and 11 May 2014, when it was launched at a Community Links service in the Midhurst Parish Church.

We have listed everyone below.  Please let us know of any corrections or ommissions. Thank you!

You can also see the video via the global site We are Happy From, which includes the nearly two thousand Happy Videos world-wide, including eight from UK.  We think that we are the smallest town in the UK that is included on the site.
