RALLYING CRY TO PROTECT CHICHESTER HARBOUR
The Chairman of the Chichester Harbour Trust, John Nelson, issued a rallying cry to protect Chichester Harbour to over 130 supporters at the charity’s annual summer reception at Emsworth Sailing Club.
John said; “never before has this unique coastal area faced such unprecedented pressures; from development, climate change and environmental challenges”, he continued, “the role of the Chichester Harbour Trust has never been more important”. He was supported by Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, who issued a passionate plea to conserve the special protected landscape of Chichester Harbour, one of the few remaining unspoilt areas of the South Coast.
The event was held on a beautiful evening in Emworth, showcasing the scenery of Chichester Harbour. It was attended by the Duchess of Norfolk, and representatives from Chichester District Council, Chichester Harbour Conservancy and Hampshire County Council.
