“Our roadshow will have lots of activities for children and we’re hoping it will inspire them to want to find out more about this wonderful place.

“We’ve chosen urban locations on the fringes of the National Park because we’re keen to raise awareness of the opportunities the South Downs offers not only for those living within it, but also those people who might not have been before.

“Our roadshow will have lots of tips and ideas for family days-out over the Easter holidays, including wildlife-related activities.
