The Norwich Fringe Project is a local authority funded countryside management partnership that makes natural conservation happen.
Would you like to get involved as a volunteer, learn new skills and help manage a wide variety of sites for wildlife and people? There are lots of ways to get involved from one off events to regular volunteering sessions.
Our latest blog sees us mowing and brushcutting the paths as well as removing overhanging branches around Whitlingham Marsh and Train Wood along the Marriott’s Way.
I have worked with Norwich Fringe Project for over 15 years, mostly where they manage County Wildlife Sites – it is a pleasure to work with an organisation that has such a wealth of knowledge and depth of commitment when it comes to managing wildlife areas. We are involved in over 1300 CWS across Norfolk and it is a relief when the Fringe is involved, as I know the site will be well looked after, frequently with the active engagement of local people.
The Fringe Project works to conserve the landscape and wildlife of our local countryside, and equally importantly it involves local communities, volunteer groups, schools and businesses in this important task. It provides them with an opportunity to make a positive difference to their local environment.
