Volunteers needed for River People Tour

Interested in doing your bit for our river? Love Our Ouse are looking for a range of volunteers to support its upcoming River People Tour (see events above) from October 2023 to May 2024. 

The River People Tour is taking place at Balcombe 21st October, Barcombe 27th January, Lewes 23rd March and Newhaven 25th May. The daytime (11-4pm) events will be full of talks, workshops, stalls and fun activities bringing together lots of initiatives and local people to celebrate, learn and act for the River Ouse.   
River Community Mapping  
The Love Our Ouse team is seeking committed volunteers in a special opportunity to help deliver its interactive community mapping activity. It’s a powerful engagement tool to gauge and understand how people interact and connect with their river and identify as well build upon key features, problems and solutions to improve it. 

All you need is a curiosity, a willingness to learn and interact with all kinds of people who live along the Ouse. You don’t need any prior experience or knowledge of rivers, community mapping or public events – all training will be given. It’s fun, lively and you will definitely learn a lot about your river in the process! 

Cafe coordination  
Help keep our visitors refreshed! The team is also looking for someone to plan and coordinate its tea and cake cafe and also other volunteers to help serve on the day. 

Come and join in!
There’s lots of flexibility in tasks and rotas. No experience is necessary, just a few hours or muck in for the whole tour! Get in touch with Tasha for more info at
