COME AND JOIN US !
Fancy trying something new
Why not join our next conservation task on Litcham Common?
Volunteering activities have been shown to improve people’s fitness and enhance mental wellbeing
by combining outdoor exercise, increased contact with nature and the social benefits of group activity.
The conservation tasks on the common take place on the second Saturday
of each month, starting at 10am and meeting in Litcham Common car park.
New recruits are always welcome. Please contact Tim Angell on 01328 700045 for more information.
We are a group of volunteers who have been helping to carry our management work on the common since 2004. Tasks include cutting and burning scrub, litter picks, clearing footpaths, pulling up ragwort and repairs to fencing and benches.
The group is affiliated to The Conservation Volunteers ~ tcv.org.uk which is a national charity that supports community volunteers. We are also grateful to Litcham Parish Council which provides an annual grant that pays for our insurance and some other expenses. We generally meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month, starting at 10 am in the car park. Children are welcome but they must be carefully supervised by their parents. We usually carry on until at least lunchtime, depending on the weather, how much work there is still to do and how enthusiastic we feel!
New recruits are welcome and tools/protective gloves supplied. Don’t worry if you can’t spare the whole morning; even if you only come for an hour or so we will still be pleased to see you. Contact Tim Angell on 01328 700045 for more information.
