Related topics: Leisure and culture / My area

Shropshire Council’s outdoor partnerships team in Bridgnorth have launched a second day of volunteering at it sites in south Shropshire and are looking for new people to join its weekly group.

Until now a volunteer group has been run every Tuesday for over 20 years and we have now reached capacity on Tuesdays. A new group has been set up on Thursdays, and so far we have five to six regular members and we would love to have more people join our band of helpers.

The group meets every Thursday, 9am – 3.30pm, mainly at Severn Valley Country Park at Alveley between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, but the group will also work on other country parks and nature reserves in the local area from time to time.

Volunteers are asked to wear old clothes and steel toe capped boots, bring waterproofs and a packed lunch and drink.

Tasks can include anything form coppicing in our woodlands, building fences, vegetation management to helping with large events such as our 10K Run.

Please call 01746 781192 to register your interest and for further information.

Please phone on the number above before visiting us on a Thursday to make sure which site we will be at.
