WOW is an organisation to promote the beauty and diversity of the Widewater lagoon. It is a voluntary organisation and aims to encourage people to enjoy and contribute to the care and protection of the lagoon, a unique local nature reserve. We send email (paper copies as required) information and yearly newsletters to members to publicise events and inform them of flora, fauna and wildlife updates, as well as providing general information about the area.
WOW’s yearly Social nights, Flower Walks and Bird Walks are always well attended and great fun. WOW also hold regular lagoon and litter clearance mornings.
WOW has great productive working relationships with Lancing Parish Council, Adur District Council, West Sussex County Council, Friends of Shoreham Beach, and the Shoreham and District Ornithological Society.
There is a proactive committee established with two local councillors or board.
WOW has an exciting website which is regularly updated with the latest news. Each member is also encouraged to keep a watchful eye on the lagoon and report to the website any sightings or points of interest. We welcome any feedback.
