Keen eyed residents will have noticed that there’s a new estate agent on the High Street at number 133. 

Chatt Estates was founded by Peter Chatt and Alex Santry when they opened its first office in Ditchling in 2015. Having been born and bred in the area, Peter explained that opening in Hurstpierpoint last month was an ‘obvious step’ for the thriving agency. 

“Our team is hungry, proactive and efficient, and has a combined 15 years of local property knowledge. Do drop in and say hello. You’ll feel like you’ve know us forever,” Peter commented.

Another new shop - seamstress now open too


A Hurstpierpoint resident opened a new shop in the village last month.

Maria Fox is a bridal seamstress and she’s taken the shop at 108 High Street for her business that specialises in bridalwear, bridesmaids, prom dresses and occasion wear – but she also offers general alterations too.

Maria, who has been sewing for 15 years, comments: “I pride myself on being meticulous! I know it has to be just right. All dresses leave my shop fitting perfectly and my brides happy.” 

The shop is open between 9am and 3pm during the week and by appointment on Saturdays. If you’d like to know more pop in and say Hi, or find Maria Fox Bridal Seamstress on Facebook.

hurstpierpoint Co-op reopening update

The Co-op is scheduled to reopen at the end of November. However, this is pending approval of additional planning consent, for which the deadline was the end of August.

On a brighter note, the temporary store on the green is now taking credit cards! And Wendy from the Hurstpierpoint Community Shop confirms that the charity shop will be returning to the High Street as soon as possible after the Co-op’s move back.
