Mon 10 July Sketching Morning  10am Dell Quay Dell Quay, PO20 7EE, Map reference OS map 120, SZ 835028. Sailing boats, water, mud flats at low tide and a good pub (Crown and Anchor) that opens for coffee at 10am, just as we start. Parking available at the side of the road just before the pub; please do not park on the quay. Access is from the A286 south of Chichester, along the Witterings road, where Dell Quay is signed off to the right after a few miles. (Before Chichester Marina.) .

Wed 26 July Sketching MorningWednesday 26th July, Uppark N.T. Gardens, South Harting, GU31 5QR. 1 ½ miles south of South Harting on B2146. We are very fortunate to have obtained permission to sketch outside at this lovely location, so let’s hope for good weather. Meet in car park or near the admission hut; N.T. rules apply for the car park and for entry so PACS artists will need to be NT members or pay for car park and admission I’m afraid. The views, details of buildings and the beautiful gardens should give plenty of inspiration. Café and toilets on site.
