Practical Volunteers

Role Summary

We have three active volunteering groups covering our Nottinghamshire community woodlands. They meet as follows:

  • Wednesday 12.30-4pm – meeting weekly at Ollerton Pit Wood
  • Thursday 10-2pm – meeting weekly at one of the following, Boundary Wood, Shirebrook Wood, Pleasley Park, Oxclose Wood or Silverhill Wood
  • Sunday 10-2pm – meeting monthly

Tasks undertaken are a mixture of conservation project work and site management including clearing vegetation, fencing, coppicing and much more.

No experience is needed. All tools, training and coffee, tea and biscuits will be provided. Suitable clothing and footwear for the weather and outdoor tasks is recommended. As Thursday and Sunday sessions run over lunch, we would advise bringing along some lunch with you.
