Chichester stepped back several centuries last week when the city’s town crier took to the streets.

City councillor Richard Plowman donned ceremonial robes last week to hail the first birthday of Chichester cafe Patisserie Valerie, one of the first businesses to move into the Butter Market which was reopened following major refurbishment last year.

The cafe also announced its charity for the year was Chichester-based charity the Sussex Snowdrop Trust.

Co-founder Diane Levantine was there for the celebration and staff also held a raffle, which generated more than £80 for the charity.

Snowdrop provides a range of services for children with life-limiting illnesses and also supports their families.
