Last year’s Chichester regional event had to be canceled: it is now taking place this spring, on Saturday 14th May. 

Michael Forbes Smith will be opening his house and garden to members of the Little Ship Club and families in Earnley village, just East of Bracklesham on the Manhood peninsula, about six miles due south of Chichester.  There will be drinks from 1230, and a barbecue lunch will be served (all hands to the tongs!) from about 1.00pm. 

For those who are driving there is parking, but please ask the hosts exactly where to leave your car – there are neighbours!  For those coming by train, if there are sufficient numbers, we will try to arrange a joint taxi/minibus at a reasonable cost: but we will need plenty of notice. Chichester itself is a pretty city with an historic cathedral and market cross, for those who would like to explore before coming south to Earnley village. 

The maximum numbers that Michael and Claire can cater for is 24, so please book early!  A contribution of £15 per person would be appreciated - please use the "book online link" above.

Booking will close at noon on Wednesday 11th May 2022.
