The Sussex Bat Group has been
approached to attend the following upcoming events. You don’t need to be a bat expert in order to help, just have a keen interest and bags of enthusiasm. All the events
involve talking to and dealing with members of the general public.
The Group has equipment and tools to help run these events, so if you are
please contact Ryan Greaves, Events Co-ordinator: events(at)sussexbatgroup.org.uk
Let's spread the word about what magnificent creatures bats are!
Pooh Gardens Open Weekend - April 27th and 28th 2013, from 11am - 4pm.
Pooh House and Gardens, Fittleworth, West Sussex
This is lovely event, with the money raised going to a very worthy cause: The Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice. We hope to be running a stall to promote bats and the work of our group. There will be plenty of activities going on to keep kids (and big kids like us) excited. If you'd like to come along and help out, even if you can't be there the whole time, please let us know and we'll provide you with the relevant details. You never know, you might even get to meet Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and friends!
Floral Fringe Fair - June 1st and 2nd 2013, from 10.30am - 5pm.
Knepp Castle, Shipley, West Sussex.
This is a great two-day event in a wonderful setting: The beautiful Knepp Castle Estate. The group had a stand at the fair in 2012, and it was so popular they've asked if we'd like to come back again in 2013. The fair aims to encourage wildlife friendly gardening, so will have many different wildlife charities and a number of specialist nurseries. It will also have contemporary crafts, woodland products, and many local food producers. The private gardens, designed by Georgia Langton, will be open for the event.
Our stand will be promoting the work of the group, talking to the public about bats and hopefully raising a bit of money. No expert knowledge required. If you'd like to help with this event please let us know, so we can provide you with any important details or last minute changes. Any time you can give is greatly appreciated.
