About us

The Brighton & District Local Group was formed in 1974 and has over 200 members.

We have our main indoor meetings on the 4th Thursday in the month (except June, July and August). In December the meeting is during the 2nd week.

We have monthly day-trips by coach to reserves between September to November and January to May and 'easy going' mid-week walks in our local area (second Wednesday of the month, suggested donation of £2 for non-group members).

The group's aim is to run a comprehensive programme which encourages people to remain members of the RSPB and raise money to help save nature in the south east. Group members are very active in the sale of pin badges and are taking part in the Brighton & Hove House Sparrow project.

Non-members are welcome to attend our events.

For more information about Local Group Activities/events, contact Mark Weston, Group contact, on 01903 606581 or email mark.weston@RSPB.org.uk

FOR ALL OTHER ENQUIRIES PLEASE CALL THE RSPB SOUTH EAST REGIONAL OFFICE ON 01273 775333. (Monday - Friday 9am - 5.15pm)
