Started in 1972 as a fund raising venture to install an outside swimming pool at Park Mead Primary School, this became the foundation for subsequent money raising for local needs. Over a 40 year period the Arlington Bluebell Walk has raised over £215,000 for 60 local charities, converted to present day values, this is over £500,000!
This year we have created a Memorial Glade to remember loved ones, and a Memorial Book to record thoughts and memories of those who used to visit the Bluebell Walk.
There are 8 interesting walks over three working farms, plus the 23 acre ancient oak Bluebell Wood. One walk is specifically designed for those who have walking difficulties and disability scooters are always available free of charge to give independence to those with mobility needs.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Arlington Bluebell Walks. The season starts from Good Friday 6th April until 13 May open10.00am until 5.00pm every day except Mondays (other than Bank Holidays), dogs welcomed if on leads.
Delicious refreshments are served throughout the day, provided by one of 18 Registered Charities.
We invite you to join the Friends of Arlington Bluebell Walk, to enter the Photographic competition with five classes, paint me a Bluebell, and a childrens quiz. See cows being milked and other farm animals. Enjoy the flora and fauna of unspoilt East Sussex and lovely views of the South Downs countryside.
