The Lower Mole Partnership has a great selection of practical countryside volunteering tasks to try this summer during July to September.
This July and August we are carrying out lots of path surfacing as well as some bracken and invasive Himalayan Balsam pulling, before we head back in to the busy scrub clearance season which recommences in September.
If you are new to countryside volunteering we would recommend any of our bracken/balsam pulling or scrub clearing tasks as a good starter this season, but you are more than welcome to try any others as well. 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 join in 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 current task programme to find out more about what we are up to, when and where across the partnership area - north Surrey and in to Kingston.
Full details on what you need to do/bring/wear etc to get involved, full site information and diary dates can also be found in the programme. Please also see our Volunteer Promise.
A particular highlight event this season that the Lower Mole Partnership is involved in is the popular River Mole Discovery Day on Sunday 30 September, which locally celebrates annual World Rivers' Day. Please call us to find out more and do come and visit us on the day.
Don't forget we also welcome corporate and local/school groups by arrangement, plus students completing their Duke of Edinburgh awards and work experience/voluntary training placements. Please note we do not run practical volunteering tasks on weekends.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. For corporate group telephone enquiries please call Debbie Hescott on 01737 733931.
We look forward to welcoming you along with our fantastic conservation crew very soon.
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 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.
