If you would like to help to fund the voluntary work of the Friends of Brandy Hole Copse to maintain Chichester’s first Local Nature Reserve then please print off a copy of the following membership form. Download a form by clicking here.

This lovely local amenity is maintained and improved by a small group of volunteers who work for the benefit of the whole community of Chichester.

If you have not visited the Copse, why not come and see what a special area it is.

The Copse offers local residents:

  • A place to walk and enjoy peace and quiet
  • A place to study our rich flora and fauna
  • Significant archaeological remains
  • A resource for families, local schools and the community

The FRIENDS OF BRANDY HOLE COPSE desperately needs your support and the backing of the people of Chichester to survive and to ensure that their work to protect and conserve the Copse as a Local Nature Reserve can continue.


  • Become a member of the Group
  • Make a donation to the work of the Group
  • Offer a small amount of your time to help out as:
    • conservation worker
    • helping with raising public awareness of the Copse
    • helping with membership recruitment
    • acting as an occasional warden
    • anything else you feel able to do
