The Watercress Way Volunteers in Action

Volunteers follow the signpost to Bridgets Lane

Although some of us have volunteered or led teams of conservation volunteers in the past, we haven’t had a special The Watercress Way Volunteer team- until now!

On 14th February 2018, the Trustees got started on Bridgets Lane clearance with our new kit funded by the South Downs National Park Authority.

Some of our trustees are going on equipment use courses in the next few months too.

This small section has a sloping path, which is in fact, quite difficult to use for those who are unsteady on their feet, and clearing the footway will go a tiny way to improving that.

We also cleared bricks from the path below and tidied up the ‘track’ area.

This is the first ‘official’ volunteer day and we want to welcome new volunteers to join the action groups on future days.

A lot was achieved by five trustees in 2 hours.

If you’d like to join in too, please contact us on

We will be running two-hour sessions at weekends and weekdays.

Further details will be posted on the website and in our newsletter.
