The Mid Sussex Times is a local weekly paper for the region of Mid Sussex in West Sussex, but also covering news from the localities of East Sussex. The two major towns served by the paper are Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath, including news from and around the surrounding parishes of Cuckfield, Lindfield, Hassocks, Chailey, and as far north as Forest Row.

The newspaper, often coined as The Middy, has been in circulation since 1881, and in 2006 celebrated its 125th anniversary. The newspaper headquarters are based in the centre of Haywards Heath, and the windows often showcase the best of this week's news. Together with the main paper comes a property guide, complete with all the listings in the area. The paper also runs a yearly 'Best Baby Award', and publishes football results from the area's seven local divisions.

The circulation of the paper in 2010 was 11,416 but is believed to have fallen significantly since. Together with the Thursday release, there is also published a weekly paper called The Mid Sussex Citizen, available free in most of the region's corner shops and village stores, repeating the main headlines published in that week's Mid Sussex Times, yet also including a grand array of advertising for people wishing to sell and buy goods in the area.
