August 25, 2019 –
There's going to be a Community Open Day on Brewery Field again this year on Sunday August 25, sponsored by Transition Chichester. The dray horses from Fuller's Brewery, which proved such an attraction in 2017 will be back again offering rides to visitors. Brewery Field was once the field where the horses that pulled the brewers' drays used to graze. It has been offered to the community for the next 10 years, providing that we make use of it.
Besides the dray horses, Transition Chichester are planning to have a range of stalls on the field featuring local environmental groups - very relevant at the moment with the huge focus on climate change at national and international level. Although there is a serious theme, the idea is for everyone to have an enjoyable afternoon while learning a little at the same time. Our plan is to have some hands-on activities for children too.
Friends of Centurion Way are taking up the kind invitation to have a stand at this event. If 2017 is anything to go by, we're expecting several hundred people to attend. The event will open at 12.00 and close at 4.00 pm and set-up starts at 10.00 am. Access is from the car park, thus fairly limited.
