Terms and Conditions

Our promise to you

We aim to fulfil your donation, as recorded by you on this website or otherwise. However please be aware that there are limitations to our abilities due to:

  • Time: we plan for planting over the next 10 years. Events over that time may mean that we need to adapt our plans.
  • Nature: has a way of making her own views heard.
  • Authorities: what we do on the escarpment requires the consent of Eastbourne Borough Council, the South Downs National Park Authority and the Forestry Commission. All three have been involved in our project from the beginning, and have been most helpful and supportive, but the formal process of getting permission cannot begin until we have finished our initial fundraising.
  • Partnerships: schools’ plans, in particular, may take some time to evolve, and we may need to change our plans to adapt to theirs.
  • Total funds raised: the escarpment covers about 150 hectares of land running for three miles north to south. To have an impact, we will need to tackle a section at a time. If we do not raise enough funds, we will not be able to tackle every section and will need to scale back our plans.

Please also be aware that we cannot guarantee the survival of any particular flower, tree, bench or waymarker. We will keep some funds in reserve for replanting and repairs.

In respect of trees we will record your sponsorship in respect of the area where they are planted, not of a particular tree. In the longer term it is in the nature of trees to compete with each other; not all will survive. We regard you as having a stake in the success of your part of the Avenue, whatever the fate of any particular tree.

Your donation is irrevocable. If you change your mind as to what you would like to sponsor, or we are unable to comply with your expressed wishes, we will aim to apply your sponsorship in a way that is agreeable to both you and to us.
