Wildflower Meadows by Sarah Abercromby, a local resident and Chair of the Sussex Wildlife Trust Storrington and Arun Valley Regional Group

The talk will take place on Wednesday 25th October at 7:30pm at Storrington and Sullington Parish Hall, Thakeham Road, RH20 3PP.

Sarah will talk about the wildflower meadow created by her and her husband at their home on the outskirts of Storrington on land that had been used to graze horses that they acquired as an extension of their existing garden. Although this gave them a significant area of land for their wildflower meadow the same techniques can be applied in smaller, more manageable gardens which will also deliver benefits to wildlife – our vital pollinators and other insects and the other animals that eat them such as birds and bats, and hedgehogs which are currently listed as vulnerable to extinction in Britain. They also provide interest and delight to people.

£2 for members, £4 for non-members – pay at the door. Please arrive a few minutes early to take your seats to enable a prompt start at 7:30pm.
