We are meeting Brendan from Kiwi Recruitment and Peter who used to work up in London for one of the London Boroughs and organised their Car Free Days – eg on Chancery Lane.

Do come along and find out how you can help make this day a reality in Chichester like it is in so many other places.

Jacqui also reminds us that Injunctions-Eating away at our right to protest

This too…  [supported by our local Markwells Wood Watch].



Mary Iden: has clarified about the Brewery Field / Alder Buckthorn – sorry Mary.

 ( I have also toned down the Main Meeting Notes, and provide a revised, new PDF.)

Chichester City Council (in association with WSCC) wouldn’t allow a hedge to be planted along the boundary between Brewery Fields and the school playing field to the north – they didn’t say that they wouldn’t allow a few alder buckthorn, and in fact Paula and Bebette found space for a few there in odd corners.


Jenny Cole: Asks that the time of the Repair Cafes is amended to 2-5pm rather than 1 til 4 on April 13th May 11th and June 8th! Here’s the facebook link to the event; https://www.facebook.com/events/586801405166999/

Sorry, Jenny.  We have shared around a lot of “Repair Cafe” Flyers with the correct times.  Repair Cafe, second Saturday of Month at The Quaker Meeting House (Friends), Priory Road, Chichester PO19 1NX

Claire Wilton: Sunday 17th March: Tree Planting on the Manhood –



Philip Maber: (with thanks to Jonathan Brown, Adrian Moss, Sarah Sharp & Others).  We need to raise the profile of the sustainable transport links between Chichester and Emsworth – a fast cycle commuter route along the A259 and a slower, safe, scenic route closer to the railway – with connection between the two. The Scenic Route (presumably incorporating The Emperor Way – Fishbourne) can also help provide the vital Nature Corridor Network – linking in with Centurion Way and Salterns Way, (SDNP and Chichester Harbour Etc.)


Currently, WSCC have a ChemRoute Feasibility Study underway (“ChemRoute” being the link between Chichester and Emsworth).  Clearly, this needs more publicity and support.


A very significant way that our Community can feed into promoting safe, alternative transport options around our area is through the Chichester Cycle Forum (next Meeting Mon 25th March, at 6:00 p.m. at County Hall).


Please let me know if this interests you and you’d like to get involved: Philip Maber <themabers@gmail.com>


In reply to Richard Oliver: concerns over 5G here is the Lancet article (thank you Jacqui): https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanplh/article/PIIS2542-5196(18)30221-3/fulltext?dgcid=raven_jbs_etoc_email&fbclid=IwAR1xw_s8iNLFxNJjKR8MGTJ_LaUYZdH375Yy-FcSnQ0FpczEWcr2YJ-bAdo
