Friends of Lewes Family Competition: Design a Nature Trail

Can you design a nature trail around your street, your garden or another space in Lewes? 

Friends of Lewes are organising a family competition linked to their leaflet: Lewes Heritage – A Town Nature Walk which results from a collaboration between Lewes Urban Arboretum, (Trees Committee of Friends of Lewes), and Wildflower Lewes. Although it was launched for Heritage Open Day 2020, it describes an all-year-round walk which you might enjoy!

To share in our celebration of the natural environment of Lewes, we are inviting you to create your own “Nature Walk”. For example, it could be a hand drawn map of your neighbourhood, illustrated with your drawings or photographs of the trees, wildflowers or the wildlife that you have seen there.

To respect social distancing, we are asking entrants to photograph their entries and send them to with your name and contact details. By entering, we will assume that you are giving permission for Friends of Lewes to share your entries on social media but please let us know if you would prefer us not to show your name. The competition is open to individuals or groups of any age and prizes of £15 book tokens will be awarded to three of the lucky entrants.

The deadline for sending in your entries is October 31st 2020. Have fun!
