Mark Record and others are putting a huge amount of work into making this Event a success – The Playing Out Order Application with CDC stipulates the need for a lot of people (Volunteers) for various roles. People are needed to help with activities and as marshalls (for when part of South Street is temporarily closed to traffic). If you are able to help please contact Mark via the website below, click on the top bar on the front page.
Check out the website www.carfreechi.org.uk for more information and to see the amazing CarFree Chichester Paintings – all winners (With thanks to Pallant House Gallery and The Chichester Post, together with many generous prize donations).
Stagecoach buses have agreed to not run buses along South Street for the duration of the Event and are loaning a bus (to be parked on South Street).
St. John’s First Aid Volunteers are organised, as are several attractions, including a Dance Troop from Chichester University.
Mark is currently applying for a Music Licence (amongst many tasks).
One measure of success will be an increase in footfall and takings amongst the many Chichester Shops that Open on a Sunday. Chichester Cathedral is being particularly supportive.
When we started organising this Event last Year, we didn’t know that CDC would organise a Chichester Street Party exactly one Month ahead of ours. (The Street Party is on Thursday 22nd August). This is on North and East Street.
Another measure of the success of Car Free Day Chichester in South Street on Sunday 22nd September will be promoting sustainable transport, a taste of reclaiming a bit of safe space for play and a localised improvement in air quality.
