Ferring Conservation Group
Preserving Ferring's Environment
We are one of Ferring’s largest organisations with well over 900 members. Membership costs just £1 per year per person. Our main aim is to conserve the unique Ferring environment.
The Group started in 1988 – campaigning against a proposal to build an indoor sports facility on the Little Twitten recreation ground. That proposal was thankfully abandoned, but there have been many campaigns since that time – some we have won but sadly some we have lost. We are possibly again going to have to fight plans by housebuilders Persimmon Homes to build up to 1100 homes in both sections of the Goring Gap between Ferring and Goring, although at this time, no planning application has been submitted.
We CAMPAIGN against over development and the destruction of open spaces, trees, wildlife and the character of Ferring. We STUDY the local wildlife. We carry out PRACTICAL WORK in the Ferring Rife area, the beach and other open spaces. We hold MONTHLY MEETINGS where we have speakers on national and regional conservation issues, and discuss what is going on locally. We organise TRIPS and GUIDED WALKS with a conservation theme.
