People living in and around the lower Ouse Valle set up the Ouse Valley Cycle Network (OVCN) to encourage the development of The Egrets Way - a network of multi-user routes in the Ouse valley for recreational and utility use.

The Egrets Way Project was a Full Award winner in the Rural Enterprise category of the recent Sussex Countryside Awards 2017
Organised by CPRE Sussex – the Sussex branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England.

The judges describe the project as ‘an inspirational community project … the result of much-integrated work to obtain planning permissions, landowner consents and outside funding’

Lady Egremont presented the award of a Plaque and a Certificate to Susan Thompson and Neville Harrison.

"It is an absolute thrill to win an award," explained Neville, Chairman of the Egrets Way project.

"It's a real boost to the project that will surely help us to find the funds to enable us to complete the path’s missing sections between Lewes and Newhaven."
