Lottery funds nature arts project
Pupils involved in the arts project will get to visit the reserve
An arts programme to help children get involved with nature in East Sussex has been awarded a lottery grant.

Awards for All has provided 9,300 for a street parade and musical performance by primary school children in Rye.

The event in May will link Radiator Arts, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and pupils from five rural schools, who will also visit the reserve for a day.

Another grant of 10,000 will be used to improve facilities at Crowhurst Park Cricket Club.

The money will be used to improve their grounds and expand the club's youth section.

Mick Flanagan, the club's head youth coach, said: "It is the sort of investment that makes a huge difference to a club like ours, since the equipment is of course absolutely vital in keeping the club going."
