Chichester District Council has launched its Let’s Talk Panel, to find out about the issues that matter to residents and businesses. They run surveys and consultation events throughout the year. Your opinions matter. By joining the Let’s Talk Panel they can make you aware of what’s going on and how you can get involved. There is no time commitment and you choose what you want to respond to. Their aim is to work along side communities to make sure that they are delivering services that meet local needs. If you are interested in getting involved, please click the Let’s Talk Initiatives image, which will take you to CDC’s website where you can complete the sign up form.

The Wey & Arun Canal Trust has acquired a 900 metre stretch of abandoned canal near Bramley in Surrey and plans to create a beautiful waterside path. The Trust is holding a number of taster days for those interested in volunteering in 2019 and joining its working parties to restore the Birtley Reach area of the canal. The taster days are being held from 11am to 1pm on Tuesday 22 January, Wednesday 20 February and Thursday 14 March at the recently restored section at Dunsold/Alfold.
The Birtley Reach area of the canal is particularly picturesque
