Wednesday 13th July, 2016.
Neil Hart, one of the Deputy Lieutenants of Sussex who lives in Bepton Parish, was on hand to unveil the panel dedicated to Bepton Down SSSI. Helen Hollowood, Member of the Bepton Down Conservation Group and instrumental in obtaining the grant which allowed the idea to become reality, made an introductory speech. Also on hand was Simon Verrall, Chairman of the Bepton Down Conservation Group, who designed and produced the panel.
The panel has been dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second’s 90th Birthday.
It is beautifully produced and is representative of the flora and fauna to be found on Bepton Down. Situated at the T.junction at the foot of Bepton Down it will give the visitor much pleasure. It is informative and will enhance everyone’s visit to the village and surroundings of Bepton.
A number of parishioners and others were on hand to witness this ceremony and despite yet another shower they were delighted by what they saw.
Bepton Down Conservation Group’s other two Committee Members, Irene Bridgmont and Beatrice Potter, were also present.
