CHILDREN’S SAFARI IN BURGESS HILL

by Julie Kempson, Jul 2019

The annual – and very popular – event known at the Children’s Safari returns to the Bedelands Nature Reserve in Burgess Hill on Wednesday 31 July,  where children and adults are given the opportunity to get up close and personal with reptiles.

Friends of Burgess Hill Green Circle Network

This event is organised by the Friends of Burgess Hill Green Circle Network (FoBHGCN), which is a registered charity manned by a group of unpaid volunteers, who carry out conservation work and wildlife surveys as well as organising open air events, guided walks and talks, with the Children’s Safari being their annual project.   Find out more about FoBJGCN by clicking here

Chairman of the Green Circle Network, Mr Dominic Moore has said “There is a small charge to handle the reptiles, due to the high cost of their maintenance, and also for the face painting, to cover the cost of materials”.

He continues “As always, the public should arrive at the football pitches off Maple Drive at 1.45 pm for a 2pm start”.

All of the exotic reptiles are provided by the East Sussex Reptile and Amphibian Society which was founded in 1982 and whose members are passionate about their slithery animals.   For more details about this society click here.

WHAT IS THERE TO SEE AND DO?

On the 31st July other activities taking place at the event will include pond dipping, face painting, meadow sweeping, bushcraft demonstrations and a tombola.  The majorities of these activities are free.

Please remember that dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead.

The event starts at 2pm and ends by 5pm.   Come along and make it a great way to start the school holidays.
