Sussex Wildlife Trust response to Coronavirus

We have been assessing the Covid-19 situation daily and are constantly reviewing all of our planned events, taking sensible steps to protect the health and safety of staff, volunteers and members of the public.


In light of the updated Government advice regarding Covid-19, all Sussex Wildlife Trust events until June are cancelled until further notice. This includes public and members events as well as volunteer work parties and school visits. We will be reviewing this regularly as the situation develops.

Nature reserves

The Woods Mill nature reserve car park, public toilets, Pop-up Cafe and the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve Information Cabin are closed.

Sussex Wildlife Trust supports current Government guidance to the public with regards to access to green space, exercise and social distancing, including not driving in order to undertake exercise. 

Getting in touch

Please email rather than telephone if you need to get in touch with the Sussex Wildlife Trust. We may take slightly longer to reply to enquiries, so we appreciate your patience.

We are thinking of all our wonderful members and supporters at this time, and hope you all stay safe.

We recognise how important nature is for our wellbeing, and plan to send out regular updates for things you can do from home, or in your garden. We also encourage everyone to engage with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as we will be sharing the sights and sounds of spring.
