make new friends, learn new skills


Volunteering update

We are delighted to confirm that our volunteering programme will re-commence from

Thursday 3 September 2020.

We will be running it in a slightly different way to ensure that we can mitigate the risks of Covid-19 as much as possible. We are following official government guidance and have developed new volunteer protocols.

For further information on the new protocols please click on the link to the Volunteer Information Sheet.

 

Making new friends, keeping fit, working in an amazing landscape and knowing that you are helping your local environment are all great reasons for becoming a volunteer.

We are fortunate to have about 40 volunteers who regularly help the Trust in many ways:

Since 2006, much of the access infrastructure in woodlands and meadows around the Ironbridge Gorge, such as paths, steps, and kissing gates have been installed by our volunteers with training by staff and our contractors. During the summer months, you may see us hand scything the meadows or undertaking wildflower identification. In the winter months, hedge-laying and coppicing. The volunteer programme covers a wide variety of tasks with hand tools.

Our volunteering day is on a Thursday, between 10-3pm – we work on a variety of sites based in the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and surrounding areas.

If you would like  to discover, improve and enjoy your local green space then get in touch with us, we love to welcome new and returning volunteers. Just fill in the enquiry form below and we will get back to you to answer any queries you may have.
