Sussex Downsman

The Sussex Downsman Hike is an event held annually on the first Saturday in October on the South Downs. The 2018 event will therefore be held on 6th October.
The Hike is organised principally for the Scout and Guide Associations of East and West Sussex, with an open invitation to Scout and Guide Groups throughout Great Britain.  We are still in need of volunteers for the following checkpoints/road crossings/start points:

  • Kithurst - this is a new checkpoint, west of Washington.
  • Saddlescombe crossing - new road crossing east of Devil's Dyke.
  • Westmeston Village Hall - new start point and road crossing. Need some extra people to assist our check-in team to keep things running smoothly.
  • Amberley checkpoint - we do have someone who will run this if no-one else will, but if anyone else would like to step up, they are more than happy not to do it.
  • Backroom staff at Burgess Hill HQ - This may be of interest to anyone looking to get involved in the 'operations room' for future years also. Also some help with refreshments on Sunday morning would be appreciated.

We also have other tasks that we would appreciate some help with, so even if you can only commit a couple or so spare hours and are able to help out, we would love to hear from you.
If you are able to help us with any of the above roles, could you please reply to staff@downsman.com, letting us know your preference. Could you please also pass this mail on to anyone else you think may be interested in helping out.
