Website Timeline Online Since 1999

The original Sunny Worthing website started out from a concept Marcus Leighton had in 2001.

It was attached to his fathers business website as a means of promoting Worthing using photos he took himself, with snippets of information gleaned from the many books found in Worthing Library and in particular the former Worthing Sentinel.

The Worthing Sentinel was edited by Paul Holden, and is now Worthing Journal.

Sunny Worthing now has a new owner, and this information is here in honour to Marcus’ memory.

Marcus Leighton 1967 – 2003

Marcus had leukaemia and died in 2003, aged 36.

His father decided to keep the Sunny Worthing website going as a tribute to him.

This is kept here to honour the memory of Marcus Leighton.
