MY CHICHESTER HARBOUR
What does Chichester Harbour mean to you? Does it remind you of a day out fishing, competing in a dinghy race or strolling along a footpath? Whatever your connection, a new website has been launched where you can add your own stories or memories about the harbour.
Celebrating 40 years since the inception of Chichester Harbour Conservancy, the website has been devised to join the story of the Conservancy's history with that of the people who live, work and play in this area.
Based on a map of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, www.mychichesterharbour.co.uk has been designed to be very easy to use. With just a few clicks your story or memory related to the harbour can be added along with photos or even a video. Or spend some time browsing through and reading the many stories that have already been added. Find out how a parachute found in the harbour was used by an ingenious family during the war years or read the hilarious tale of Two Men and a Boat, a story of two friends who spent a night trying to get their new acquisition afloat and onto a mooring.
Ali Beckett, Publicity Officer for the Conservancy said, 'We are looking for as many people as possible to add their stories and memories to the website. Did you take part in the Millenium Sailpast or remember the storms in the '80s or even the great freeze in the '60s? Whatever your story or connection with the harbour, we want you to get involved. Adding a memory along with a photo or video is really easy, just follow the steps on the website or get in touch with the Harbour Office.'
The new website www.mychichesterharbour.co.uk has been generously supported by The Friends of Chichester Harbour and the Chichester Coastal Change Pathfinder Project.
