Work parties

Help out at our monthly volunteer work parties held on the 4th Sunday of each month. See our events programme for dates. Various conservation tasks are carried out, which differ depending on the time of year. These include coppicing and removing willow, maintaining our tern rafts on the lakes, removing invasive Himalayan balsam, fencing and managing our reed beds.

We meet at 10am in the Lavell’s Lake car park on Sandford Lane (opposite the Dinton Activity Centre entrance) and work for three hours with a break for tea, coffee and a chat. We work whatever the weather and old clothing and sturdy boots or wellies are recommended.

All are welcome, although under 16s must be supervised by a responsible adult.

There is no car parking charge for work party participants.
