This is the first class stamp that we will be using this Christmas, which has been designed by 7-year-old Molly Robson.

Molly, who is from Horsham and attends Leechpool Primary School, drew Santa, snow and presents to depict Christmas.

Her design was picked out from 240,000 entries.

Molly's stamp design beats 240,000 others

Royal Mail have chosen a design by a young girl from Horsham to feature on their first class Christmas stamp this year.

Seven-year-old Molly Robson drew Santa, surrounded by snow and presents in answer to the question "What does the Christmas season mean to you?"

Her drawing beat 240,000 other entries.

It is only the third time in Royal Mail's near 500-year history that children have designed their Christmas stamp.

We spoke to Molly and her mum and dad.

Two West Sussex Anglers have broken their personal records by landing two fish weighing in excess of 300lbs in total on a river in Spain.

Neil James, from Horsham, caught a 151lb catfish on the River Ebro at the small village of Riba Roja, near Barcelona, in June.

An even larger fish weighing 161lb was landed by his friend Alan Brumwell, from Angmering, when the two men returned to the same stretch of water four weeks later.

RSPCA Inspector Tony Woodley was horrified when he received a complaint and found 14-year-old Cheeky living with her former owner in Brighton.

But vets at Arthur Lodge in Horsham came to the rescue, with the help of local students, and created a harness on wheels for Cheeky. Now she can get around without putting any weight on her front legs.
