What we do - Volunteers welcome

Volunteers meet on Tuesdays from 09.30 am until 1.00 pm. All tools, equipment and materials are supplied. A wide range of jobs need doing so there is something for all abilities and skills. It is a great opportunity to get some exercise in the fresh air whilst putting something back into the community. Anyone who wishes to get involved is very welcome. Safe working practice, with social distancing, is being actively managed.

“When I first decided to volunteer I did it to support the Heritage Trust, a wonderful asset for the village of Cleeve Prior. What I found working as a volunteer was much bigger..., community at its best, a friendly and engaging team helping me to do jobs I never thought I could do, and plenty of open air exercise!”   Javier
 
 

 

From Brian. 'There is always something to catch the eye if you like wildlife. This year it is the friendly Buzzard, but the swallows always make the Summer.
 Cheers  B 

 

 Working at the Trust is so varied. No need for the Gym or Pilates, my pelvic floor is great, it's all the other bits that suffer. Anon

I greatly enjoyed working with the children Apple pressing. Their enthusiasm washing the apples and tossing them into the Scratter was great. It was a real team effort with lots of volunteers turning up to help. Some had to rush off to the orchards to restock supplies of apples. Working as a team is fun and it is very rewarding giving kids a chance to explore something new.  Gina

“When I was asked to help with the education visits I thought I would be involved in talking to the children on the actual visit days about apple pressing or other aspects of volunteering in the garden and orchards; I never thought I would be updating and designing the pages of the trust’s website.   With the help of another of our volunteers, Matt, who looks after the Website and Facebook page, I have become far more confident with this modern technology!" Linda

"Peter is a volunteer with a particular interest in wildlife. He is focussing on developing the wildlife habitat in the Sanctuary for the Trust. Here is what he has to say about volunteering" 

 

Why do I volunteer? - Volunteering is something you either do as a one off or you are a serial volunteer! I am definitely the latter, over many years I seem to have stuck my head above the parapet and have got myself involved in various projects and charity organisations etc. My main involvement nowadays tends to be environmental, doing things to help raise awareness of the dangers our wildlife and flora face, as we continue to destroy habitat and saturate the ground with harmful pesticides and the like. To a lot of people, what's out of sight is out of mind, this can no longer be an option, keeping the status quo is no longer an option, everyone needs to be more aware of the harm we are doing to our environment, what we breathe and what we throw away and come up with innovative ideas to help force change. Peter
