Shoreham Port – ORIGINS AND FUTURE
Shoreham Port has a rich history having been in existence since 1760. It is a key economic driver, stimulating trade and growth across Sussex and beyond.
We are delighted to be hosting an evening that will look back at the origins of the Port. Sussex University lecturer, Geoffrey Mead, a well-known local historian and geographer, will provide a fascinating history of the evolution of the Port, from the era when vessels had to navigate the fluctuating channels of the estuary, to the development of the structures leading to the establishment of today’s major trading facility.
The Port’s Chief Executive, Tom Willis, and Sustainability Manager, Cheyenne Plant, will share the Port’s present day and future plans, with a particular focus on sustainability. Shoreham Port is an integral part of the local community and has strong ambitions to continue to lead the regional economy to a sustainable future. Tom and Cheyenne will provide a stimulating overview of the Port’s Masterplan and what to expect from the Port over the coming years.
The talks will be illustrated with photos and visuals and the event is kindly sponsored by Oakley Property.
