Restoring Wetland Habitats in West Wittering

November 11 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

The Project

FLOW (Fixing and Linking Our Wetlands) is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project to survey and improve the ditch network of the Manhood Peninsula, to prevent flooding and increase vital habitat for wildlife. FLOW works in the following parishes: Apuldram, Donnington, Earnley, East Wittering, Bracklesham, Hunston, North Mundham, Selsey, Sidlesham, West Wittering, West Itchenor and Birdham.

Activity

We will be clearing vegetation and cutting back fallen trees on this wetland site, where we have seen water voles and kingfishers.

Volunteers will be allocated disinfected tools at the start of the activity, but if you have substantial gardening tools and would prefer to use your own, please bring them along. This is a muddy site so wellies or waders are advised.

Please bring your own gloves. We will bring cake and hot water, but please bring your own cup, and if you will stay all day please bring a packed lunch. See our full COVID-19 volunteering policy here.

Due to COVID-19, our team leaders will need to keep track of the numbers of attendees. Please RSVP to this event, using the contact form below, to book a place. Please note that outdoor activities are subject to change, due to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances. Attendees will be notified of any changes via email.

Location

The Wad (wetland area), Cakeham Manor, West Wittering, PO20 8AH. The Wad can be found just off the road to West Wittering beach.

There is limited parking in Pound Road (West Wittering, PO20 8AJ) and the layby by the public toilets.
