A GUIDE to the city has been launched – to help make it accessible to everyone.
Chichester Access Group has been working on a new booklet which provides information about buildings, business and leisure centres, with a focus on disabled access and families with pushchairs.
Glynis Spencer, chairman of the access group, said: “I am extremely proud of all the effort the members of the group have put in.
“It is no easy task to assess an area as large as the Chichester district, much of which is rural.
“All their hard work is rewarded by the encouragement and good wishes the group has received, from the residents and businesses in the areas that our guides cover and we look forward to completing the series.
“We would not have been able to have achieved what we have without the support we have received from Chichester District Council and our other sponsors.”
The guide includes information on medical centres, shops, community facilities and places to stay.
Councillor Myles Cullen, cabinet member for commercial services at Chichester District Council, said: “We are really pleased to be able to support CAG and the work they do.
“The group knows first-hand how difficult it can be accessing businesses and shops within the district and so it’s really pleasing to see how many businesses and buildings are accessible.”
The guide is available at Chichester Library, the council and tourist information.
