I am always impressed by how motivated the people in the Chichester district are to make a positive difference in our community and beyond. This determination came through when I recently met with a group of environmentalists and climate change activists in Chichester.
The summer holidays are in full swing and lots of us are enjoying our beautiful area. It is not just us, many people come from far and wide to experience our picture-perfect coastline, historic City and rolling green hills.
Last week the Brexit saga continued as there was an amendment designed to make it difficult for the next Prime Minister to prorogue, or suspend, Parliament. Once again, we are in uncharted territory in the Commons.
There are many hidden gems in Chichester and last week I discovered the wonderful West Sussex Record Office. It’s a building many of us pass by but seldom use; outside of registering births, deaths or marriages. Behind the unassuming entrance there is a wealth of local knowledge.
I have been thinking long and hard about who would be the best person to lead our country at this difficult time. Making my decision has not been easy as the stakes are high and there are several great candidates.
