Nork Park Conservation Volunteers

Local Groups
the Group has been joined by several new volunteers, so we can see real progress from every working party. We have missed the support of Park Ranger Sally Jones from the last couple of sessions while she has been on maternity leave, but we look forward to her return. In the meantime, colleague Hannah Roughley, who appears on the cover of the latest Borough Times, has been covering for her.

Some of the Group’s work last winter has borne fruit: clearing brambles under the Coronation Oak has allowed the Council’s contractor to mow underneath it in the past month, keeping it accessible. However, the combination of early wet weather followed by the warm summer this year has given nettles and other wild plants ideal conditions, and they were six feet high in places at the beginning of October. The Group will be working with the Park Ranger to get the maximum benefit from their labours over the coming winter


New volunteers are welcome to turn up to any session, which finishes at lunchtime. Tools are provided - all you need are suitable working clothes,footwear and gloves.
