Lower Mole Partnership – volunteer task programme

Spring 2019

The Lower Mole Partnership has a great selection of practical countryside volunteering sessions on offer to try this spring during April to June 2019.

If you enjoy woodwork, we will be very busy in our workshops making signposts and other countryside furniture this season, as well as heading out to install all of the new signage on various glorious local sites, including upgrading the popular Thames Down Link route. We also have various stock fencing tasks on offer as well as Himalayan Balsam pulling sessions.

If you are new to countryside volunteering we would recommend joining in with any of the Himalayan Balsam removal or meadow management task dates, as these are both ideal starter conservation volunteering activities to try. If you have any questions or concerns please just give us a call for a chat on 01372 743783 before deciding which task is best for you to start with. There is no fixed commitment, you can join in on task days as often as you like and we provide a free, sociable, happy 'green gym'. You can work at your own pace and you will be shown exactly what to do.

Please have a look at our Lower Mole Partnership Volunteer Task Programme Spring 2019 (PDF) to find out what we are up to, when, where and why across the partnership area this season - north Surrey and in to Kingston.

Full details on what you need to do/bring/wear etc to get involved and full site location information can also be found in the programme. Please also see our SCP Health & Safety Guide for Volunteers (PDF) and Surrey County Council's Volunteer Promise (PDF).

Please contact us on 01372 743783 for any further information and to let us know if you would like to come and join in. Alternatively you can email us: mole.project@surreycc.gov.uk.

Don't forget we are pleased to welcome corporate and local/school groups by arrangement, plus students completing their Duke of Edinburgh awards and work experience/voluntary training placements. Please note that we do not run practical volunteering tasks on weekends. Please also kindly note that not all of the scheduled tasks are suitable for groups, so please get in touch and we can further discuss the best options for your specific group together.

We look forward to welcoming you along with our fantastic conservation crew very soon.

The Lower Mole team has a stand again this summer at Ashtead Village Day on Sat 8 June, so please do come over to say hello and find out more about our work/volunteering opportunities if you are visiting this local show.

How you could support us from your armchair instead...

If you are unable to join in with our practical conservation tasks but would like to show your support from indoors for our local countryside management work, then please do kindly consider becoming a member of our charity partner the Lower Mole Countryside Trust.

This independent, registered charitable trust is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers and they raise funds through memberships and fundraising initiatives in partnership with the Lower Mole staff team.

Full information and details on how to join can be found on the Lower Mole Countryside Trust website or please call Bryan Muddle on 01372 743783.

The Trust is always very pleased to welcome one-off or legacy donations, so if you would like to consider this to support the management of your lovely local North Surrey countryside (rather than or as well as becoming a member - your choice) so it can continue to be enjoyed and accessed by future generations, please do contact the Trust to further discuss.

Many thanks for your support.
