South Downs National Trust Volunteers

“… conserving landscapes across Sussex”

We are a Sussex conservation group who volunteers on behalf of the National Trust.  We were founded in 1988 by several volunteers who carried out work for other conservation groups.  Our first work party was held at Highdown Hill near Worthing in light of the damage caused by the great storm of 1987, clearing storm damaged trees.  We have grown in stature a lot since then and have a core group of volunteers but want to recruit more to help conserve our precious countryside.

We mainly carry out the work on alternate Sundays with the occasional Saturday and also have weekend tasks, once or twice a year.   We also run social events.   Members of the group come from all walks of life.   We are a friendly bunch and will provide any new recruits with a welcoming atmosphere, and of course volunteers also get their travel reimbursed.
