|Sussex ARG to be Re-launched|
|Thursday, 10 November 2011 16:46|
You may have noticed that there has been virtually no activity from SxARG for quite a considerable time. This is due to a number of reasons , but mainly down to changes in commitments of many of the existing committee members. SussexARG was the first ARG to be established in the UK and now, more than ever our native species are under ever increasing risk - so now is a good time to re-establish the group. This is your chance to shape SussexARG into a new and effective conservation group. As with all conservation groups , key roles need to be filled and new initiatives brought in.
As a starting point we now have a new presence on the web : http://www.sussexarg.org.uk . In a very short space of time the website has received hundreds of "hits" but it needs to provide much more comprehensive information and updated items.
To see what other ARG's are doing go to the Surrey ARG site : http://www.surrey-arg.org.uk or the Kent Reptile & Amphibian site : http://www.kentarg.org
If you would like to help re-launch SxARG , we are setting up informal meetings in East and West Sussex during December. The dates are 6th December @ 19:30 at Sussex Wildlife Trusts HQ at Woods Mill in Henfield and13th December @ 19:30 at the Linkleter Pavillion in Lewes .
