In 2021 a volunteer group was started to help with projects in Hurst Meadows. This group so far have helped with removing invasive weeds from Wilderness Wood, dock clearing in Fifteen Acre, grass removal from the Heritage Orchard and assisting with butterfly surveys.
We are still really keen to hear from any residents who would be interested in being part of this volunteer group. It is an ideal opportunity for those of you who would like to learn more about wildlife, ecology or land management and/or enjoy being outdoors in the countryside.
Hurst Meadows Butterfly Monitoring Project
Following a successful year of butterfly recording in 2021, we will be looking to carry out another survey in 2022.
Groups of volunteers carry out weekly walks of short routes around Hurst Meadows, recording the butterflies they see (and the weather). You don’t need to be a butterfly expert, beginners are welcome, but you do need the time to commit to regular weekly walks when the sun comes out, which can sometimes be at short notice!
For more information, please contact the Parish Office on 01273 833264 or complete the below volunteer enquiry form.
Sussex Clubs for Young People
Do you have skills which you would be keen to share with young people? Sussex Clubs for Young People are keen to expand the range of activities that they can offer to their group in Hurstpierpoint. These roles are flexible and do not necessarily require a regular weekly commitment. The group meets at Court Bushes Community Hub on Thursday evenings from 3.15 to 5.15 and is for young people from age eight and above.
We are also looking to form a small committee (to meet no more than four times a year) to support this group. This would widen the range of grants that we are eligible for.
For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Lorna Cooksey (Assistant Clerk) at the Parish Office or email email@example.com
These volunteer roles are available subject to a DBS check.
