Friends of Combe Valley

The Friends of Combe Valley is a registered charity whose members work to improve the Countryside Park for the benefit of all who visit. They support the aims of the Countryside Park by providing a pool of volunteers, raising funds and awareness, and generally promoting the Park as a local asset.

Public meetings are held at the Discovery Centre (Opposite the Waste Disposal in Freshfields, off Bexhill Road, St Leonards) at 6.30pm on the last Thursday of each month. All are welcome. NOTE! These are currently suspended due to COVID-19 but expect to resume in Summer 2022.
