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 sawing and burning their way through large stands of Rhododendron from a woodland near Taverham.
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.
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.
