Sussex Day: safely celebrating our county’s past, present and future
Launched in 2007, the day is marked on 16 June each year to coincide with St Richard’s Day, who was the Bishop of Chichester in the 13th Century.
It is a day to commemorate the rich heritage of Sussex, enjoy all the county has to offer, and look ahead to new opportunities and possibilities.
Leader of West Sussex County Council, Councillor Paul Marshall said: “I want to wish everyone living in, working in or visiting our beautiful county a very happy Sussex Day and to enjoy the day safely.
