The county's leading nature conservation organisation has been awarded nearly £56,000 to oversee a new nature project.
Sussex Wildlife Trust have been awarded £55,600 by the Heritage Lottery Fund to oversee 'Wild about Worthing' which is an urban nature project.
The two-year project allows Worthing residents a chance to experience the natural world while encouraging local wildlife to thrive in the specially created environment.
Planned activities include a town-wide gardening competition and a Forest School programme offering outdoor learning to pupils.
As the days are getting longer and the evenings lighter, we're being urged to keep a look out for hungry hedgehogs.
Sussex Wildlife Trust says we can help by leaving out meals of dog or cat food and a dish of clean water.
When hedgehogs wake up properly it's crucial they find enough to eat as they're extremely thirsty and their fat reserves are low, having lost a third of their body weight during hibernation.
Please do not feed hedgehogs bread and/or milk as this creates health problems for them.
