Outdoors Education Space

Community Supporters is currently undertaking a public consultation to create an outdoor education space across 13 acres of green space in Little Common, Bexhill. We are currently undertaking a series of habitat surveys to ensure our activities and plans only enhance what the site already has to offer. Initial suggestions for this area include a new wooded area and forest school, tree nursery, community orchard, pollinator sanctuary, rural craft workshops, hedge laying, and much more. 

Keep up to date with activities via our Facebook page or contact us to share your ideas.

Eco Hub

Community Supporters are currently working alongside Rother District Council, and supported by many local groups and organisations, for the creation of an eco hub style venue in Bexhill. This site has the potential to offer meeting or hot desking space for small to medium community groups and individuals, bike hire and repairs, library of things, repair cafe, community kitchen space, and more.

We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas for an eco hub in Rother, or to get involved, please contact us.

Beach and Forest School

Throughout the year we offer many opportunities to engage with our local environment via our popular beach and forest school sessions. Our fully accredited and DBS checked staff and volunteers provide and whole range of exciting activities for all the family to enjoy.

These sessions run across several locations and will be advertised on the event page or our Facebook page. We also offer 1:1 family sessions, so please get in touch for details.

Litter Pick Activities

Across the year we undertake many community action activities, such as litter picking. We hold events across the Rother and surrounding area and support community events upon request and availability.

All equipment is provided and we welcome all residents wanting to get involved. To keep up to date with our planned littler pick events please see our event page or visit our Facebook page.

Beach Garden Proposal

As part of our focus on accessibility across the district we are proposing the development of a new beach garden space on Bexhill beach. This area will boast a ramp down onto the shingle, leading to several walkways and decking areas, as well as planting and beach artworks. As much as possible the project will use reclaimed or recycled materials including old wooden groynes and railway sleepers.

This project is still in the planning and consultation phase so we would love there here your views. You can contact us directly by clicking HERE.

Health

Individual health and our environment can be very closely linked. We know that by simply being outdoors, in a natural environment, is good for your mental health and eating healthy can improve your physical health.

We run various activities that help promote healthy living whilst also supporting and improving our natural environment. From fitness groups, health walks, cookery workshops, budgeting your food shop, or sourcing local and seasonal produce, we can support individuals or other community groups to promote and improve local health issues.
