Friends of Hollingbury & Burstead Woods have arranged a joint event up with the Rangers' Tidy Up Team as part of the Keep Britain Tidy Spring clean campaign to clear dumped rubbish and litter on the lower slopes of Burstead Wood.

Litter pickers, gloves and bags will be provided and we will take a break half way through for a cuppa and biscuits. Please ensure you have stout foot wear as we will be working on sloping ground and there is a lot of broken glass in the area.
