The volunteering sessions will be running with the following precautions:

  • Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been asked to self-isolate
  • Please do not attend if you are classified as 'clinically extremely vulnerable'
  • Hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser will be available
  • You will be given a new pair of gloves and asked to write your name on them - you can keep these and bring them to future sessions
  • There will be a limited number of spaces available

Please bring drinking water and refreshments and wear clothes and sturdy shoes you don't mind getting dirty. Steel toe capped shows are preferred but not essential.

During summer months we have ticks and other insects on our reserves so you may want to wear repellent (we will also have some available for you to use).

Please note there are no toilets on the sites but you are welcome to find a bush!

Tickets will be offered on a first come first serve basis so if you book a ticket but something comes up and you can no longer attend please cancel your ticket on Eventbrite (or let me know) so that it will become available for someone else.

All volunteers must be over 16 (16 and 17 year olds will need a parent/guardian's permission unless they are in employment - please contact Anna in advance for details) and all new volunteers will need to complete a registration form.

If you have any questions please get in contact at or call Anna on 07964 951963
