As part of its campaign to improve and safeguard local habitats, the Wild about Warbleton wildflower group has created a highly informative Biodiversity Exhibition, that is now open for everyone to see.

The displays have been set up in both the Dunn Village Hall and the Bodle Street Green village hall. On Saturday 10th October, there will be a series of pre-booked 15-20 minute sessions from 2.00pm to 4.30pm for people to attend in small groups.

The hall will strictly follow covid-19 mitigation precautions including masks, sanitisers, social distancing and strict limits on numbers.

Wild about Warbleton (WAW), a local group of wild flower enthusiasts, was set up in 2019 to ‘enhance and protect biodiversity primarily within the Warbleton Parish Council area boundaries’

This will be done by identifying and surveying areas in danger of losing species, and visibility within the High Weald A.N.O.B. so that practical steps can be taken towards a more sustainable future.

To help make this happen the WAW group are lobbying those with a legal duty to conserve and increase biodiversity, at a time of crisis in nature. This includes the Parish Council, the District and County Councils, the Parochial Church Council and Village Hall Committees. The exhibition in village halls is part of the WAW group’s work to engage with, and inform, the local community about new nature management approaches, and biodiversity. Once sites have been identified, and actions agreed, the WAW group will lead local voluntary work to improve and safeguard habitats, and will continue to keep the local community informed about progress.
