Saturday 10th August: Extinction Rebellion Chichester Action

Wow – Obviously gone really well, and a lot of work paid off in making a huge impression and increasing awareness and support. Thank you all.

International Car Free Day Chichester 

Hi all,

[ email from Mark Record 10th Aug ]

As far as I am aware, we have not yet received confirmation from CDC 

about whether or not our Playing out Street Order for 22nd Sept has 

been permitted.

For this reason I am postponing our meeting until the 19th of August. 

This is about eight weeks after we submitted the forms for the street 

closure. The street order ought to be processed within eight weeks of 

being submitted. So hopefully we should have a definite answer by the 

19th about whether our street order has the go ahead.

I hope to drop by the Park tavern around 7:30pm on the 12th in case 

anyone hasn't got the message about our meeting being postponed.

Best Regards,


Urgently need Volunteers, Please?  

[ Posting this again ]

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. 

Please reply to this email  if you could be willing to lend a hand on Sunday 22nd September, please?  We need people to help with activities and as marshalls (for when part of South Street is temporarily closed to traffic).

Check out the website 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).

I believe 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.

Sunday 25th August: Brewery Field: At least 15 Stalls including EcoChi – Jenny Cole on Repair Cafe (without power), Sue Gilson on Swap Shop and Paula Chatfield Tree Warden.   More Helpers needed.

  and Friends of Centurion Way. 

 Family activities.

Meet and picnic with many friends.
