We Are FoodPioneers are thrilled to announce that we have successfully secured Heritage Lottery funding for a two-year project. The project “The last fisherman standing” will focus on preserving and reviving our town’s rich fishing heritage and sharing its pivotal role in the history of a thriving Worthing from the late 1800s.

From Autumn 2016 to the Summer of 2018 will be running workshops, talks and cookery events all around fish in Worthing.
