'I grew up in Prinsted and lost several wellies trying to go across the cuts at low tide. The Harbour was my home.... and it has continued to be so even when I moved away. . and I can still feel the same sense of belonging when I walk around its shoreline or sail its waters. ' 'It is a truly special place.... and I want it to remain so for our children and grandchildren. That is why I am a member of the Friends of Chichester Harbour.'
