Friends of Seven Acres

Group Logo We meet weekly, every Friday, except the last Friday of every month. Working under the supervision of the Wildlife Trust we carry out conservation work on Seven Acres Local Nature Reserve. Some of the work is quite physical (repairing fences, coppicing trees, litter-picking etc.) but each volunteer is encouraged to as much (or as little!) as they want.

There are usually 6-8 in the group on a Friday but, being a friendly, social bunch we always looking to meet new people. Come and give it a try: initial contact is advisable via the Wildlife Trust on 01204 663754 or drop us an email at:
