Herschel Park’s lifeblood are its volunteers. They help to maintain the park to the high standards achieved by the restoration which enables it to be enjoyed by the many visitors who come to park and also for future generations. We would be delighted if you would like to come and help us?
Being a volunteer at Herschel Park is a great way of exercising, to learn new skills and more importantly to help to support the local environment. While working in the park there is opportunity of making new friends.
Volunteers join us from all works of life and from a variety of backgrounds. Whether you are retired, taking a career break or need a new challenge or just have few hours to spare we can always find you something to do in the park.
Jobs can range from the very physical from clearing vegetation and digging out new ponds to planting plants, shrubs and trees. Volunteers can learn how to make new habitats for a whole host of animals ranging from bird boxes to creating homes to insects in tree stumps. They can also become involved in the varied programme of events which take place in the park.
Volunteers meet on a TUESDAY at the Park Kiosk from 10am and finish at 3pm with a lunch break (coffee, tea and biscuits supplied) and once a month on a SATURDAY, if you are interested in becoming a Herschel Park Volunteer please come along and meet our team. As most work is outdoors, sessions may be cancelled in the event of bad weather.
THE NEXT SATURDAY VOLUNTEER DAY iS:-
