Work Parties

The group organises work parties in the park. These are a great way to get involved in a direct way in supporting the park, get to know a few of the Friends group, and the team of rangers who work in the park.

Alas the pandemic has meant a change to our route. When restrictions allow, we hope to restart these with existing volunteers, and will extend to more volunteers. To find out more, please join us and indicate you’re interested in volunteering opportunities on your signup form.

Please note though that our insurance for this work only allows those 18 and older to participate.

Work has so far included:

  • clearing the pond
  • pulling the intrusive Himalayan balsam
  • Planting trees
  • Refurbishing and cleaning memorial benches
  • Part restoration of the ‘Hobbit Village’, and dressing for Christmas!
  • Planting wild-flower seeds
