This page is for people who will be in the area of Chichester, Sussex, England.
This site is OLD... and over the years some entries have become obsolete, and at the same time, other ways to find out about things have become mature. Sic tranist, and all that.
But a few things remain valid... I hope you won't begrudge me the few moments it will take you to scan the survivors and descendants of what was here long ago then the page was more useful.
First, from our sponsor....
I was a teacher for 20 years. I've used computers longer than that. I am now self-employed, and one of the things I do is provide help with computers, and private tuition or edutainment. Details, and a special offer to schools of installation of some free software can be seen by clicking here. (There is a button on that page to bring you back here.)

Have you ever tried....
Going to the cathedral for choral evensong? You can sit at the back of the nave (near the west (Portsmouth) end) and you can slip out if you don't like it or have appointments. Alternatively, don't hesitate to make your way to directly under the spire where you will be welcome, and will be able to see what is going on. 5:30 most days in the school term time. Not on Wednesdays, and on another day, only the men sing. Sunday: 3:00. There's a noticeboard with details of service times at the north-east corner of the cathedral green where you can check if everything is normal on a particular day, or email me. (Button for that at bottom of page.)
Know a child (5-7 years old) who enjoys music? Be sure the parents have at least considered whether a chorister's life would be right for him or her). There are sacrifices, of course... choristers work on Christmas, for example. But there are also immense rewards- financial and in character development. (There are no 5, 6 or 7 year old choristers, but by 10 they are too old for a normal start.)
If you like good food, modest prices, and supporting a local, establishment, go to Charlie Harper's. Great for morning coffee, lunch (light, or full Sunday Luncheon (even on Tuesday)), afternoon tea. Children welcome. Relaxed.
No... this isn't a commercial... in the sense that I get paid anything for the publicity. I just like the restaurant and want it to prosper.
