EARLES MEADOW CONSERVATION GROUP
“COME AND JOIN US”
The Conservation Group comprises volunteers involved in carrying out restoration and conservation work to the woodland and meadows forming part of the 13 acres of public open space at Earles Meadow.
The Group was formed in the latter part of 2010 and has so far put in substantially over 2,250 working hours towards restoring and maintaining this small piece of countryside for the benefit of local people.
It works in close co-operation with the land owners, the North Horsham Parish Council. Financial support by way of grants and donations to purchase tools and equipment has come from the Parish Council, West Sussex County Council, Horsham in Bloom, Unum, and the Earles Meadow Residents’ Association. This has enabled the volunteers to improve the tree canopy, open up streams and ditches, restore the meadows, carry out coppicing of Hazel and repair the boardwalks and much more.
During Autumn, Winter and Spring, work sessions are held on the 1st, 3rd and 5th (if there is one!) Sunday of the month from 10.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. In the Summer some additional evening sessions are arranged, usually on a Tuesday between 7.00 p.m. and 9.00 p.m. Members join a session when they can.
The work caters for a variety of skills and abilities and further volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested either come along during a work session or for further information
