Storrington Conservation Society and Friends of Meadowside wlecome judges

What a wet morning we had! Such a shame as Storrington Conservation Society and Friends of Meadowside teamed up to escort Barry Newman, the South & South East in Bloom judge along their Riverside Walk entry from Meadowside to Fryern Dell. Barry met the team at Foxmead Court (the McCarthy & Stone development on Meadowside) and enjoyed tea and cake with the view from their balcony over the site of the old tannery and bark mill before the heavens opened and the walk started! Barry was very positive about the collaboration between the two groups and the councils, commented on the quality of the portfolio which was produced, and was really encouraging about the Conservation Society’s plans for Fryern Dell. Obviously a number of areas for development were identified, not least the lack of signage / information along the route but we hope that his feedback will assist us in obtaining the support required from the relevant parties to enable us to get on with the very many projects in the area.
