Marchwell Studios Thinking Day

Marchwell Stables is currently an empty old stable block, on the edge of Graylingwell Park, in need of quite a lot of TLC. The next stage of the development of the Graylingwell Park community is to redevelop the stables, and turn them into new studio spaces for artists and makers of all kinds. Your help is needed.

A community thinking day is planned on Thursday October 24th, from 3 -7pm, at the Watertower in Graylingwell Park. Topics will include ... What should happen in the studios? Who should work here? How could local people use the space? Are you already doing something that needs space? How can it benefit the whole of Chichester?

It's a drop in event, so come any time. All are welcome, and tea, coffee and biscuits will be served. You don't need to be an artist or a maker - you just need to have ideas and opinions!

When: Thursday October 24,th, 3-7pm.
Where: The Water Tower, Graylingwell Park, Blomfield Drive, Chichester, PO19 6BZ

Welcome to the web site of the Summersdale Residents’ Association (SRA). We are the largest such Association in the district of Chichester covering much of the North of the city. We have approximately 400 member houses representing over 1000 adults. The work is staffed entirely by volunteers from varying walks of life and the committee meets 8 times a year.  Members are always welcome at committee meetings.

The Association is an integral part of the Summersdale area of Chichester. It aims to encourage community spirit, to preserve and improve the environment and amenities and to foster the interests of Summersdale residents.

We represent you on a number of local committees including the :-

  • Network of Chichester Residents' Associations
  • Goodwood Aerodrome and Motor Circuit Consultative Committees
  • Local Transport Forum
  • NE Forum
  • In addition we have close contacts with the Chichester Society, the East Broyle Residents Association and local Neighbourhood Watch Groups.

    We monitor planning applications proposed in the Summersdale area and lodge objections where appropriate, in addition to keeping a watching brief on wider development activities in the area.

    Our web site will give you all the details including how you can join for the very modest fee of £5 per household per year, and we look forward to you taking a positive interest in the activities of our Association.
