    We are currently recruiting for a new Volunteers Coordinator.  This is a voluntary role on our committee.  Could it be you? Meanwhile if you are volunteering in other capacities please be patient if we do not respond immediately ...


    • ACT-MAVES is a community based organisation, run by people living in the communities of Arundel and surrounding villages.
    • We continue on a wider scale the community engagement with the local environment that was begun by the Walberton and Binsted Landscape and Wildlife Enhancement Project in 2003-2006.  
    • We welcome volunteers and supporter members who share our aim to help local people enjoy understanding and connecting to our beautiful countryside.
    • If you are interested in the landscape wildlife and habitats of this area, please email our Chair Julia Plumstead to be put on our mailing list.  We will use this list to send you occasional newsletters and inform you from time to time of any guided walks, talks or volunteering opportunities.  You can also talk to our committee members and volunteers at some community occasions such as the Binsted Strawberry Fair.
