Join us for a Winter Wander

Back by popular demand - we’re delighted to announce our annual Winter Wander Walk and Fundraising Open Day is taking place again this year on Sunday 30th December 2018.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to get off the sofa after the excesses of the festive Season and fill your lungs with some lovely South Downs air, while raising some much needed funds for Grow then this is the event for you!

The day will start with guided walks from Devils Dyke Pub Car Park at 11am and 12.15pm down to the National Trust’s beautiful Saddlescombe Farm.  The number 77 bus goes up to the Devils Dyke from central Brighton arriving at 10.46 and 12.01 or you can park in the pub car park.  We’ll also be running a minibus shuttle down to the farm for those that can’t manage the walk.

At the farm there will be hot soup and bread made in the clay oven, the chance to try out some great nature based craft activities and of course there will always be cake! There’ll also be an exhibition of Grow creativity and a chance to find out about our work from those who have participated in the project. We’ll also be selling raffle tickets for the Grow Winter Prize Draw with some great prizes to be won and the day will finish at 3pm.

Tickets for the event are just £6 (+fees) for Grow members and concessions or £12 for non-Growers and are available from https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3914360 or you can just turn up on the day (but it helps if we know you’re coming in advance for catering!)

We look forward to seeing you out on the Downs
