Volunteering


    Work parties at the Knapp & Papermill Nature Reserve, Alfrick Pound and occasionally at other local reserves

    Sunday work party:  every second Sunday of each month, start time 10.30 a.m. Contact James Hitchcock on 01905 754919 for more details.

    Thursday morning work party: meet 9.30 a.m. at the bridge near the entrance to the reserve. Contact Simon Turner on 01684 573227 for more details. 

    The work parties involve keeping paths clear, bracken bashing, building and maintaining steps, maintaining the picnic site.

    The work is not only beneficial to wildlife but can also be therapeutic, great for anger management when you're bashing bracken or brambles and an excellent way to keep fit. You don't have to over exert yourself and you are not committed to every work party.

    Everyone is very welcome.
