Background to The John Davis Memorial Fund
Lt Col John Davis OBE was Harbour Master at Chichester for nearly fourteen
years and last summer, died of a heart attack whilst sailing his Sunbeam “Fleury”
with his wife Valerie.
John Davis was very popular, both with fellow sailors and all those in and around
the harbour. Ex-Royal Marine John, had been Harbour Master since July 1997
and was responsible for both the harbour authority and the Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty. He received an OBE in 2005 for services to sailing and the
environment of Chichester Harbour.
The aim of the Memorial Fund is to acquire a boat like that shown above which
will provide further water-based opportunities for all three Services and their
injured service personnel and families in Chichester Harbour.
Art at Upper House with both the participating artists and their sponsors and the
helpful participation of guests and visitors, wish to fully support Valerie Davis and
this Memorial Fund at this year’s exhibition, weekend commencing the 23rd of
Exhibition opening times:
Saturday 10.00am to 5.00pm / Sunday 10.00am to 4.00pm
Upper House, Itchenor Road, Itchenor, PO20 7DA
