Lewes District Council is teaming up with the Friends of Old Brickfield to celebrate the bugs and creatures that live on the Old Brickfield in Seaford on Friday 29 July between 11am and 2pm. All are invited to this free event to catch a bug and then view it zoomed up large on a screen. You can also help to make a willow sculpture that will stay on the site. There will also be the chance to tap into your creative side and write a nature related poem as well as other activities led by the Council’s Community rangers.

We are also taking the opportunity to launch a series of nature themed activities at nature reserves, parks and green spaces across the district during the school summer holidays. Residents, families, and young people and encouraged to visit participating locations to hunt for the large hidden pictures of creatures hidden throughout. If you tweet a photo of yourself with one of the creatures to @lewesDC using the hashtag #LDCWild you will be entered into a weekly draw to win a nature-themed prize.

“LDC Wild” aims to encourage residents and visitors to the district to get out and about and discover the beautiful and varied green spaces the district has to offer while taking part in a fun and educational activity.

LDC Wild will come to the following locations on these dates:

  • The Old Brickfield Local Wildlife Site, SEAFORD Friday 29 July to Thursday 4 August
  • Landport Bottom, Nevill Road, LEWES Friday 5 to Thursday 11 August
  • Meeching Down Local Wildlife Site, NEWHAVEN Friday 12 to Thursday 18 August
