LEADERS of the 20’s Plenty campaign in Chichester are striving to get another 600 signatures by October 20 to show the county there is support for the scheme.

The campaign, headed by resident Sarah Sharp, is now supported by every primary school and two out of three secondary schools and is now up to 2,400 signatures on its petition.

Mrs Sharp and a team of volunteers have been working hard to get support in time for the next county council meeting on November 1.

This month campaigners spent the day collecting signatures at the Hungry Caterpillar Community Cafe at the Chichester Nursery, Children and Family Centre in St James’ Road.

Mrs Sharp said: ‘Collecting letters of support from schools and signatures is not just a numbers game, it is an important part of the campaign.’
