“It’s nice to give a bit back to the community. The most satisfying thing is when members of the public walking past stop and say thank you.” Did you know that the parks and open spaces in Adur & Worthing are cared for by a small army of volunteers? If you enjoy being outdoors, meeting other people and would like to help care for the local environment, why not join one of our ‘Friends of’ groups.
