Events

Most of our events are free, though donations are always welcome to help fund our work. Every penny you donate supports conservation.

However, because our indoor talks involve hall hire and speaker costs, for these we charge non-members £3 each and members £2 each, but entrance is free to under-16s.

  • Coronation Meadow for West Sussex

    Bedelands is home to the best wildflower meadow in West Sussex – and that’s official!

    In June 2013 Mid Sussex District Council, the Friends of Burgess Hill Green Circle Network and the High Weald Landscape Trust were delighted to learn that Valebridge Common Field was chosen as the Coronation Meadow for West Sussex.

    This proves that there is far more to Bedelands than an open space where you can stroll, play or walk the dog. It’s an important local resource to be treasured by one and all.

    (See www.coronationmeadows.org.uk then launch the meadows map and click on Sussex – West for our entry.)

    Seed is collected annually to propagate new, similar meadows. The field is then mown in late summer and horses belonging to a Bedelands neighbour graze there during early winter.VALEBRIDGE COMMON FIELD GEN

One thought on “Events”

  1. We just wanted to say thank you for a great afternoon yesterday.

    This is the first safari we have been able to come to and we had fantastic time.

    I just managed to arrive in time for the start after an early shift and I was amazed at the size of the crowd waiting to go in!

    Our two boys thoroughly enjoyed the activities which you provided. They both filled their sticky cards, and were fascinated by the bush craft demonstration, pond dipping, animal bones and bug hunt.

    Thanks again for a great day, we’ll definitely be back next year if you run the event again!
