Biosphere News Bites
May 2014

Dear <<Name>>
The first bank holiday weekend in May is almost upon us, and the Biosphere project will be represented at a couple of free environmental events (see below) where you can catch up with us, if you fancy something different from the Brighton Festival!

If you'd like to know more about the thinking for our Biosphere area, but can't get along to see us, then have a listen to our radio interview which will hopefully answer any questions that you have.

Whatever you do, take time to enjoy the long weekend outdoors!

Have Fun in the Sun!

All About our Biosphere

Would you like to know more about the Biosphere project and our thinking for the future, once we hope to become recognised as a new UNESCO World Biosphere site this June?
Then listen to Radio Free Brighton's Big Green Interview with the Biosphere Project, to get the low-down from the project officer Rich Howorth.
Get Involved

Would you like to boost your wellbeing by spending time in the countryside with like-minded people?
The Grow Project invites you to turn any negativity you have experienced in to positive feelings, by signing up to be part of a closed group session once a week (Thursdays) on their next 8-week Season (starting 22nd May).

Lastly, a reminder to have your say on the future improvement plans for Stanmer Park, by taking part in the short survey by  6th May (extended deadline).
The funding bid team need to hear your views on their proposals if the master plan is to win major grant funding from the Lottery!
