Friends of Hollingbury & Burstead Woods will be planting up to 400 trees and shrubs in order to improve Burstead Woods a small strip of woodland in Hollingdean. The group is planting the trees to form a hedge behind a new housing development which backs on to the woods.

Gill Taylor, Secretary of the group said: “When Pioneer House was built the builders put up a plain chain link fence on the boundary and the clearance work behind the block of flats left the woods feeling more exposed than they were before. We received some money via the council to plant up the fence to make the woods feel and look nicer and to lessen the impact of the new building.”

The group is looking for volunteers to help with the work. No experience is necessary, but wear sensible clothing and sturdy footwear.
