Seals Appreciation Morning

As you will probably be aware by now Father Paul is retiring in April and he and Zena will be leaving Chidham. For the last 5 years they have run the Seals playgroup and without their stewardship the group will be unable to continue in its current form.

To give both them and Seals a celebratory send off we are organising a pop in play session for all the families that have been involved in the group. Please feel free to pop in whenever you can during the two hours to say hello, have a play and a drink.

Donations of cakes or nibbles would be much appreciated.

(Please note this will replace the session on 9th Feb and the session on 2nd is cancelled due to frozen pipes)


New fence for Maybush Drive/Maybush Copse

Work installing a new fence at the end of Maybush Drive where it borders Maybush Copse was recently completed by Georgie one of the Rangers from Chichester Harbour Conservancy in partnership with the Volunteer Rangers.

They cleared some of the plant growth and added the new post and rail fence. Thanks to Richard Austin and to Georgie and her team.

New website goes live

Our new website goes live today. It’s been a big job to move all the content over to the new site (after 12 years) and we are still working on many areas of the design. We know it is not perfect, but it will be!

Some pages are waiting to be populated with information by their respective organisations, whilst other parts which we’ve dusted off may contain information that is out of date. Please help us during this transition period by emailing us to tell us if you find errors (though give us a short period of grace!) and by being patient as we remedy them.

The Parish Council is pleased to announce the installation of a new Community Noticeboard alongside the Play Area in Broad Road. This is available for all those wishing to advertise local events and announcements.
