Conservation with the Friends of Petersfield Heath

Who is this for?

The Friends of Petersfield Heath organise regular work parties which include general clearance and monitoring work as appropriate.  These tasks are carried out as specified in the Heath Management Plan.


They are combining their routine conservation work with clearance of the Bronze Age barrows, in preparation for the archaeological digs due to start in September.


They meet at either the Little School Car Park in Heath Road, or the Sussex road car park, at 10am.  Their sessions last for about three hours – although they do stop for breaks and tea!


Please bring waterproof/windproof clothing, good strong gloves and protective footwear/boots. If you also have suitable tools such as shears, small saws, bill-hooks, loppers, or spades these will be useful to you.  The best thing to do is come along and watch/participate and enjoy the Heath.


They have work parties on the following dates (all on Sundays) 7, 21 and 28 September, 12, 26 October, 2, 16, 30 November and 14 December.  Please contact them prior to attendance to check any details.
