Selsey Wins HLF Funding

The ‘Sea’s the Day’ project, which aims to raise the profile of Selsey’s fishing industry, has been launched thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £35,800. Selsey Town Council successfully bid for the money for its Sea’s The Day project with support from the Selsey fishery, Chichester District Council and the Manhood Peninsula Partnership to help secure the grant.

Sea’s the Day aims to create a permanent oral history record of the local fishing industry by recording the fascinating stories and memories of fishermen and their families, and using them to create a short film and accompanying book.
