Meet Jenna - Practical volunteer

I had a sabbatical for 6 months and this is where I chose. There isn’t a typical day - I could be making bonfires, laying hedges, cleaning ponds or dressing up as a Victorian.

Before I knew it I was invited along to an education team meeting and was asked to dress up as a gypsy fortune teller and organise a Girl Guide trip.

Meet Amy - Specialist volunteer

A typical day starts with a quick catch up with tea and biscuits before we head out into the field. I am using GPS to create informative maps using GIS software.

Friends of Devil's Dyke (FODD) help look after over 2,000 acres of glorious downland, woodland and farmland. Without them the Devil's Dyke estate and people's enjoyment of it would be a lot poorer. FODD can be found working at Devil's Dyke, Saddlescombe Farm and Newtimber Hill, Fulking Escarpment, Wolstonbury Hill and Southwick Hill. Why not join them?
