A Greener, Cleaner Lewes – Friends of Lewes talk, Wednesday 13 February, 2019, 7:45pm

Dean Bell, Louise Holloway, and Millie Manley will give three talks for this eco-themed evening

The Friends of Lewes is primarily known for its built environment work, but we also focus on the natural environment of our area. These three short talks demonstrate our commitment to this aspect of keeping our town special. Our speakers describe varied projects spanning the town’s trees, sustainability, and its problems with litter. FoL supports all these projects in one way or another.

Dean Bell of Plumpton College will describe the work he has put into a tree survey of the town, which the FoL Trees Committee started in 2012, and which Dean has recently revitalised.

Louise Holloway will describe the evolving town asset that is Tingle’s Way, a walk around Lewes that speaks to sustainability and ecosystem services, named for the late Dr Colin Tingle. Amongst many other achievements, Colin was a significant contributor to the philosophy and substance of the town’s Neighbourhood Plan.

Millie Manley will speak about Litter Free Lewes, her successful and passionate initiative to stem the tide of discarded litter which blights our streets and parks.
