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.

Event Information:

  • Batchelors Farm Meadows

    General:  This site of 13 hectares, owned by Burgess Hill Town Council, lies to the south of Burgess Hill and Greenlands Drive and adjacent to the east side of the railway line.  The water tower is a prominent landmark on the site.  It is connected by a bridge over the railway (no motor vehicles) to Nightingale Meadows to the west.  It comprises meadows, hedgerows, a stream and a pond.  It has excellent views of The South Downs and in particular the Jack and Jill Windmills on Clayton Hill.

    An information leaflet and a separate self-guided walk leaflet are in the process of being devised by the Friends in conjunction with Burgess Hill Town Council.  The existing management plan is currently being updated.

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!
