THE 40th anniversary of Middleton Press was celebrated at an open day at the new Camelsdale shop.

Middleton Press director Deborah Esher has relocated 40 years of her late father’s work from a former site in Midhurst to the new Camelsdale shop.

Deborah’s husband Ray Esher said: "Thank you all for being here. Moving here has been an enormous task, and many said we wouldn’t fit all the books in."

A colouring competition was organised and was won by Leo Norton, Stella Liddle and Henry Norton.
