Monday Group are a volunteer group based in Ditchling, East Sussex who maintain public rights of way and design, build and install stiles, bridges and steps allowing walkers to enjoy the beautiful Sussex countryside. The group is now funded by donations from local organisations and private individuals, among them farmers and landowners who have come to respect its work. It also raises its own funds by the sale of bird boxes, wildlife and insect habitats, coffee mornings, jumble sales etc.
During 2015, Southbank Ramblers funded £800.00 for the construction of five stiles on public footpaths between Plumpton & East Chiltington.
