Who Are We?

The Friends of Warnham Local Nature Reserve is a registered charity working to promote and protect Warnham Local Nature Reserve for the benefit of the varied wildlife, and as an important and valued community open-space.

The charity has a board of trustees which runs the organisation in conjunction with a number of dedicated volunteers, some of whom support the trustee board and attend committee meetings.


The Role

In conjunction with Horsham District Council, The Friends of Warnham Local Nature Reserve has two exciting and ambitious projects in the pipeline. These are:

1. Boardwalks – which will be the progressive replacement over time of the existing boardwalks, bridges and pontoons on the Reserve; and

2. Visitor Centre – to create an environmentally sustainable facility that is “off-grid” relative to utilities and an exemplar of recycling and reuse.


We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers, particularly those with specialist knowledge and skills (see below) who can contribute to these projects. Project teams requirements will include:

  • Research
  • Design and specification
  • Fund-raising
  • Procurement
  • Structural engineering
  • Construction
  • Alternative power generation
  • Water harvesting and reuse
  • Recycling

Project work is likely to be ad-hoc but within project timescales, with any meetings arranged to be convenient for the required participants.

What skills do I need?

  • Good communication skills.
  • Well organised.
  • Ability to work as part of a team.
  • Some specialist knowledge and skills in the areas listed above.
