Our most recent public meeting was on Thursday 19 November 2020.
Lee Dance, Head of Water Resources at South East Water, described
the River Ouse water supply transfer between Ardingly Reservoir and
the Barcombe Reservoirs and water treatment works.

Ardingly is catchment fed but is also topped-up during the winter
by pumping from the River (subject to sufficient flow).
The stored water is released during the summer (or periods of low-flow in general)
to give a steady base-flow to be abstracted at Barcombe.

Due to Covid-19 this meeting was held online using Zoom starting a 7:30 pm.
so that people could attend without any travelling!
Please email for the necessary link to a recording of the meeting.

Restoration work parties

Conservation and restoration work parties are typically convened on Thursdays but also on other days as necessary. We would be delighted to see any new working members. However, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, David Evans, via email at or by telephone on 07771 930546 before you come along so that we can give you details of access route, times and location and current Health and Safety requirements.
