…We’ll then look for other benefits to Lewes residents as we emerge onto the Downs and stroll across Landport Bottom, guided by Dan Ross (who’s responsible for site management) to spot the chalk grassland wildlife delights emerging as his restoration project starts to bloom. We’ll also be looking at some of our interactions with the area and how potential future management approaches may increase the benefits to Lewes and its economy.

Colin Tingle (Lewes and Ouse Valley eco-nomics), Dan Ross (Lewes Ranger), Sarah Rideout (Common Cause Co-op) and Michael Blencowe (Sussex Wildlife Trust’s Community Wildlife Officer) will all be there to answer questions. Michael will point out wildlife features, whilst Colin will focus on the wider ‘naturegain’ from the areas we visit and enjoy.
