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 our volunteers working at Thorpe Marriott clearing a pond of some encroaching reed mace, with some help from a local volunteer group, Draituna Trees.
Greening Wymondham volunteers have been working with Matt Davies and the Fringe Project on managing a neglected woodland on the borders of Kett’s Park in Wymondham since October 2017. We have been inspired and enthused about the work and the leadership shown by Matt has been perfectly judged. We have attracted about 15 volunteers to each session and we consider this to be a successful community effort. We are looking forward with anticipation to starting again in the autumn.
Concerning the work done at Reepham Railway Station in uncovering an overgrown platform, the difference is amazing. I brought my family out for a visit last week and they were all blown away by the difference. The Fringe Project have done an outstanding job on the reclamation – watch this space for more changes and volunteering opportunities on the Marriott’s Way.
