THE annual Festival of Harbour Walks will once again take place in Chichester.

From May 22 to 25, organisers say the festival will be extra special this year as it celebrates 30 years.

A three-day walk of the harbour was first arranged in 1982 and has continued in various forms every year since then.

Some of the regular walkers have participated over 20 times.

To make this year special, the festival has teamed up with The Friends of Chichester Harbour, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

All walkers will have the opportunity to raise sponsorship while taking part.

The walks include one day around Langstone Harbour and three days around Chichester Harbour covering 48 miles in all.

Each day includes a break for tea and cake and some include visits to local sailing clubs.

Walkers can book just one or all four days.

Experienced guides with an extensive knowledge of their area lead the walks making each day informative and enjoyable.

Sue Gilson, one of last year’s walkers, said: ‘It was a fantastic experience and a great way to see all the harbours have to offer.’
