The cycling routes between Selsey and Chichester leave a lot to be desired: the narrow and busy B2145 is potentially dangerous for cyclists and the existing off-road routes are a challenge not suited to cycling commuters. Much progress has been made towards establishing a safe and reliable cycle route to Chichester; the Selsey scheme is one of two now recommended to West Sussex County Council for priority consideration.
‘Forget-Me-Not’ is Selsey’s Dementia-Friendly Community Project which has been established by Selsey Community Forum in response to prompting by statutory and voluntary sectors. The project aims to make Selsey one of nearly 250 communities in the country which are seeking to become, or already have become, Dementia-Friendly Communities.
The Ferry Farm Community Solar Project now provides clean energy sufficient to power 1,300 homes. It is situated at Ferry Farm because the Manhood Peninsula has the best sunshine record in the UK. This innovative project, which offers ownership shares to organisations and individuals in the local area, is expected to produce up to £20,000 every year for a fund to support local community groups. Selsey Community Forum has been asked to administer this fund for a trial period of 3 years from 2017. Applications are now being invited from community groups in Selsey and Sidlesham for grants from the Ferry Farm Community Grant Fund. For more information, click on the Ferry Farm button.
Selsey Care Shop is currently a crowdfunding project seeking to create a one-stop shop to provide community information, arrange activities to combat loneliness, promote a dementia-friendly community and offer support to carers.
