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 installing a new kissing gate at the roman site of Venta Icenorum near Caistor St Edmunds. This will keep our woolly friends in while providing another walking option around the site for us humans.
I notice that you are part of a team who maintains the woods, and I just wanted to make contact to say thank you, without the Spring Plantation I would be completely deprived of the lush beauty of nature and it’s ever changing cycles. The magnificent trees and shrubs fill me with a wonderful healing energy at all times of the year. Please know that your work is valued and makes a real difference.
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.
