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 with another local community volunteer group, Greening Wymondham to do some preparatory work for a new path surface at Ketts Park Woodland.
Working outside with the Norwich Fringe Project after 42 years in an office environment has been a great experience. My fellow volunteers are a really friendly bunch who collaborate to work out ways of doing things and then energetically getting down to the tasks in hand. I have learned so much about managing the environment and techniques for fencing and masses of other things which have given me the confidence to take on any task that we are presented with.
I have always loved being out with nature and getting my hands dirty! We so often take it all for granted but everyone needs to get involved to safeguard nature, look after it like a best friend. I’d urge everyone, even if they just have a little free time on their hands, to get out there and get their hands dirty too. It’ll make a real difference to nature’s future.
