About us

The Brighton & District Local Group was formed in 1974 and currently has over 180 registered 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 members to remain members of the RSPB and raise money to help our local nature reserves. Group members are very active in the sale of pin badges, and a 100 club raises funds for the RSPB. Members of the group are taking part in the Brighton & Hove House Sparrow project.

Non-members are welcome to attend our events.
