Work Parties

Once a week throughout the year a Work Party made up of volunteer members of the Friends will be working somewhere in the Harbour.

For example, the footpath at Roman Landing had become increasingly muddy so volunteers recently wheel-barrowed and shovelled 1 ½ tons of scalping to renew the surface whilst other volunteers cut back bramble and ragwort and repaired sections of the fencing.

Other Roles

The Friends also provide volunteers for Chichester Harbour Conservancy activities such as the Harbour Watch scheme which monitors and reports regularly on sections of shoreline.

Volunteers help out with bird counts, wildlife and habitat monitoring, assisting with the education program and so on.

Members also help out with the running of the Friends - committee work, organising events, providing specialist knowledge and delivering newsletters.
