What treasure can be found on the shoreline, how to have the best day out and what wildlife you can spot throughout the year are all themes of feature articles in this year's Chichester Harbour News and Guide.
The 84-page magazine produced annually by Chichester Harbour Conservancy is now available. Feature articles cover a range of harbour-related topics. Local journalist Janet McMeekin went in search of the perfect harbour day out and valiantly tried boat trips, bike rides and picnics to come up with her suggestions. Four people who are lucky enough to work within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) all tell their story. Local bed and breakfast owner Sue Muffett explains how she loves to share her passion for the harbour with guests, whilst farmer Simon Sprackling talks about the challenges of farming in an environmentally sensitive area.
The new Director of the Conservancy, Siun Cranny, is interviewed and outlines her aims to encourage younger people to get more involved with the AONB. Keen racing sailor Roger Palmer shares his tips on using the wind and tide to advantage when racing near East Head. A new feature this year is a directory section. Packed with information for visitors by land or sea, tide tables, local contacts and a directory of local marine services this new section is sure to be useful for most readers.
The Harbour News and Guide is generously supported by The Friends of Chichester Harbour. A selection of articles can be read online. If you pay Harbour Dues you will receive a copy with your invoice. Otherwise please collect one from the Harbour Office, Tourist Office or leaflet holders around the harbour.
