Voluntary action plays a huge part in the day to day running of the Trust’s projects and in enriching our work.
To find out more about the volunteering with us please have a look at our volunteering pamphlet here

Volunteers support all of our programmes of work, from school visits to helping with our Wellbeing project, our events and the practical conservation work undertaken on the nature reserve. Our projects such as Changing Chalk, Nature Links and Lewes Mosaic also have many volunteering opportunities.

Some roles can be undertaken on an adhoc basis, while others require more commitment and will involve some training. We try to tailor our volunteering opportunities so that volunteers benefit from giving their help - whether by improving their work experience and CVs, or from getting involved with a friendly, like minded group of people.

Meadow Minders

The Meadow Minders meet at 10am on the 1st Sunday of every month, and at 10am on the third Friday outside the Linklater Pavilion and carry out practical conservation work to restore important wildlife habitats and to help maintain the site. Please wear clothes suitable for practical work and sturdy footwear. Protective gloves and tools are provided.

Future dates for Summer 2024 are:

Sundays 2nd June, 7th July and 4th August, from 10am.

Fridays 21st June, 19th July and 16th August, from 10am.



Cockshut Stream Restoration project

We are really excited to be involved in the Cockshut Restoration project, and Beverley Hunnybun will be coordinating the volunteer sessions there from October 2023 on the first Saturday and second Friday of the month.

Future dates for Summer 2024 are:

Saturdays 1st June, 6th July and 3rd August at 10am.

Fridays 14th June, 12th July and 9th August at 2pm.
