Its been 50 years since Chichester Harbour was designated an Outstanding Area of Natural Beauty. To celebrate the fact Chichester Harbour Conservancy are inviting families and visitors to come along for a picnic and fly a kite on June 7.

Taking place at East Head West Wittering and Hayling Island Lifeboat Station this will be a chance to get involved in a colourful spectacular. Mill Rythe School pupils will be participating in kite making and well over 100 kites are expected to take to the skies.

Director of Chichester Harbour Conservancy Siun Cranny said: The sight of so many kites flying together is sure to be spectacular.

We are also expecting lots of different kinds of boats to be sailing or anchored up during the event so the Harbour will be very lively with lots to see.

Everything starts on Hayling from 12.30pm with the actual kite flying kicking off at 1.30pm.
