LETTER OF THE DAY: Why tear up our Peace Garden?

Have your say

A WILDLIFE charity is asking for members of the public to help them show off Chichester’s peregrine falcons.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has called for volunteers to help run their Date With Nature project at the city’s cathedral.

From April 13 to July 10 the group will be based at the cathedral for the 11th year running, showing live footage from the famous falcons’ nest and teaching visitors about their history.

Peter Harrison, from RSPB South East, said: ‘Volunteering at RSPB events is a great way to get involved with our conservation work. I started as a volunteer in 2009, and found it to be a fun and rewarding experience. You don’t need to be an expert – just passionate about wildlife and good with people.’

The charity wants people of all ages to give out information and help visitors view the birds from the cathedral grounds.

Those interested can contact Mr Harrison on 07872 414384 or at before March 11.
