We work at a wonderful range of local sites including:
Ambarrow Court * Bill Hill * Cabbage Hill * Caesar’s Camp * Englemere Pond * Frost Folly * Garth Meadows * Horseshoe Lake * Wildmoor Heath * Jocks & Tinkers Copse * Larks Hill * Lily Hill Park * Longhill Park * Peacock Meadows * Popes Meadow * Savernake Park * South Hill Park * Westmorland Park
The Site Directions page lists all the sites we have worked at and gives directions to those sites should you wish to join us.
We often have a bonfire to dispose of excess vegetation.
The Task List page summarises the recent and future tasks with a short description of the weekly activity. Our Newsletters provide even more information.
If you need to know the formal stuff, here is our constitution!
If you would like to join us on a Tuesday task, please contact us first to arrange an induction.
What to bring: Hot drink, Picnic lunch, old clothes, sturdy footwear, work gloves and waterproofs.
Please note that there is usually no access to toilet facilities.
What to expect on a typical day: We meet on-site at 9:30am to discuss the tasks for the day, and review any risks. Tea break is at 11am, lunch is at 1pm and we aim to finish by 3pm. Please do work at your own pace. You may be as active and involved as you wish, or take a more gentle and relaxed approach. You do not need to stay for the whole day.
Health and Safety: Working on rough terrain and using tools does pose some risks. We do have trained First Aiders on site. The group has 3rd party liability insurance through our membership affiliation with the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers.
