Have your say

SUSSEX Wildlife Trust is looking for volunteers to help school children visiting Seven Sisters Country Park in Exceat.

If you like working with children and are keen to share your enjoyment of the countryside this could be for you.

This could be as little as one day each month or as often as four days a week between March and July.

You don’t have to be an expert but some knowledge or an interest in wildlife is useful and you need to like being outside.

Around 100 pupils a day can visit Seven Sisters Country Park.

Children are divided into activity groups which are based around the national curriculum but with wildlife themes.

One of the most popular activities is pond dipping where, under supervision, children are encouraged to dip their nets to reveal newts, water snails, mayfly nymphs and other pond creatures.

At Seven Sisters Country Park there is the opportunity for rock pooling.

Half day introductory sessions are being held on Wednesday February 23 at Seven Sisters.

Education volunteering is subject to two satisfactory references and a criminal record check though the CRB.

If you are interested and would like further information or to book a place contact the volunteer administrator –
