2017 Work Parties

In the pond

Work parties are fun, as well as being vital for the management of the fens!

As well as being a good way to get fit and de-stress at weekends, volunteering for work parties makes a huge and direct contribution towards the restoration of the sites that we manage. We are also able to count volunteer labour as match funding towards some of the grants that we obtain for habitat restoration work.

Work parties are held on the second Sunday in most months and on most Wednesday mornings.

Forthcoming Sunday work parties are:

If you are interested in joining the Wednesday parties, please contact Reg Langston on 01379-898009.

All work parties start at 10-30am. Please come for as little or as much time as you like and bring your friends along - all contributions are valuable. You will need wellies or strong boots and old clothes - we will provide tools, gloves and refreshments.

Occasionally it is necessary to change the work party venue at short notice. For up-to-date information nearer the time, please check this website, email us or phone the named workparty leader:
