THE GREAT OUTDOORS
We have approval from BHCC to repair the handrail in the twitten up from Eldred Avenue, make green oak benches and place them around the green - suggest where, improve the understory planting of the little copse beside The Barn. Do get in touch if you would like to join the team!We are reprinting an information booklet which accompanied the nature trail in Withdean Local Nature Reserve. Look out for them in the Cafe, the Nature Reserves and at Westdene School! Thanks to Cllr Nick Taylor for making a contribution.
Please let us know if you would attend an outing and/or a talk at The Barn or at a nearby wild place by clicking here to leave your name and email or phone.

FoWDG PARTNERSHIP WITH TWEACK
The Withdean Westdene Woods and Eldred Avenue Copse Keepers have been looking after our Local Nature Reserves for over 25 years.
TWEACK and FoWDG are now working closely together. We are responsible for the Covert (copse beside The Barn) and proposed changes [to be realised] in front of the Barn, with direct communication with CityParks for insurance and guidance when working with the Ranger. Please participate with any help you can give, such as outdoor workdays or projects.
LOOK AFTER OUR SPARROWS
TWEACK have been distributing small-bird nest boxes locally. These two are now on the Barn, and we wait to see if the local sparrows move in.
Brighton and Hove Sparrow Project are offering these for voluntary donation, so if you could put one or more on your property, please let us know. We will be collecting photo's of their occupation to share with you.
Join Mike and friends for local walks, meeting at The Barn at Westdene Green (where lift sharing can be arranged) or at the starting point. Click on the calendar to see detail of the walk and bring your friends!
Click on the calendar to see more here or contact Mike with the form opposite.
Workdays with Sussex Wildlife Trust and TWEACK, our local woodland group are scheduled regularly throughout the year.
