Meadow Blue Community Energy directors have arranged an open day to visit the 5MW solar farm at Merston between Chichester and Bognor Regis on 4th September. Investors and supporters are welcome to come. You may come along directly to the site (Midday), but for those who would like to join us on bikes, we will be leaving Chichester railway station at 11am for a short ride of just over 4 miles. You should be able to return to Chichester by 2pm, allowing for a coffee or lunch stop at the nearby Manor Farm café, which is on the way back.

For those who want to visit another local community farm and stretch their cycling legs by a further 19 miles (23 in total), there is an option for a further visit to Ferry Farm Solar near Selsey, returning to Chichester around 4pm.
