Our newsagent of the week goes to Orion News in Hassocks.

Karan and Monika Thasan took over the shop a month ago.

Karan, 35, from Siri Lanka, said customers in the area are ‘lovely’ and the Middy is a popular purchase.

He said: “We sell more than 100 copies of the Middy a week. It is a very prominent shop and is in a good place, we have been welcomed very nicely here.”

The couple, who moved from Fleet, Hampshire, have two sons, Ravi, aged 4, and Logan, aged one.
