We expect to be working with a Countryside Ranger, but if one is not available we can still work on our own as we are covered by the group’s insurance.


We will be working to clear the paths on Wild Bank that are now very overgrown and rough.

Meet at 10.30am either at the usual place opposite Bevendean School or go straight to the Wild Bank Site that is opposite the junction of

Leyboune Road and Heath Hill Avenue. Bring gloves if possible and wear stout shoes or boots. Tools will be supplied.Wild Bank a

Chalkhill Blue on MajoramPlease come along and join Friends of Bevendean Down in a stroll amongst the butterflies on Sunday 19th July in our Local Nature Reserve which is part of the South Downs National Park. We are so lucky to have a wide range of chalk grassland butterflies and flowers right on the edge of the city, a haven for them and for us. This is a opportunity to learn a bit more about the butterflies which love this habitat and it is also a nice place to sit and have a picnic afterwards if you wanted to bring one with you. Meet at the corner of Heath Hill Avenue and Norwich Drive at 10.30am

Meet opposite Bevendean School Heath Hill Avenue by the bridle path at 10.30 am.

This Sunday we will be working on a small bank we have been trying to keep clear for a long time, possibly wasting our time, but

thought we would have another try at clearing the brambles and  it may get grazed before too long.  Tools provided but bring strong gloves if possible.
