Rain Gardens

We worked with the Town Council,WSCC, ADC Gardens officers and support from the Ltn. Flood Action Group,to install the first Rain Garden into the grass verge beside Maltravers Road, opposite Arun District Council offices. This project was advised by expert Gary Grant,paid for by the Lottery funding from the 3 year ‘Arun and Rother Connections’ project lead by the RSPB.

We had £3000 Lottery funding towards this first project in the Arun catchment. There should have little upkeep. Rain Gardens are designed to relieve excess surface water. The wild flower seeds looked great last year, as the bed matures.
