What you can do

There are plenty of opportunities in 2021 and beyond for everyone to get involved in as part of the Stanmer Park restoration project.

"The community has been involved with Stanmer for many years and this project will build on their valuable work to protect and celebrate this precious green space asset, while hundreds of new education, volunteering and learning opportunities and activities will enhance everyone's enjoyment of the park for generations to come"

There will be a wide variety of additional volunteering, training education and learning activities on offer during the project. Many will be delivered by our project partners, including Plumpton College who are operating and managing the park’s historic restored Walled Garden as One Garden Brighton.

Opportunities will be advertised via Brighton and Hove Community Works as well as by our project partners. We will also provide information in the Stanmer Park Restoration Project newsletter.

If you want to sign up for this, send an email to stanmerproject@brighton-hove.gov.uk
