The Friends of Riverside Park are appealing for volunteers to help them clean up the beauty spot in Newhaven as part of national community clear up day.

The Spring Clean event will take place tomorrow (Saturday March 21) at Riverside Park, just off Lewes Road, from 11.30am to 2pm.

The event will be based in Lewes Road Hut where volunteers can collect bags, gloves and pickers provided by Lewes District Council to help tidy up the site.

There will also be tea, coffee, cake and a ‘random’ raffle’ in the Hut as well as a ‘Spot The’ challenge for children.

People are also welcome to drop in to speak to Lewes District Council Animal Control Officers or local PCSOs who will also be attending.

Before the Spring Clean, Friends of Riverside Park will be holding their annual general meeting in the Hut at 11am.

Anyone who wishes to attend this is welcome. Visit to find out more.
