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 tackling a new project of restoring an ancient hedgerow on the edge of Three Score near Bowthorpe which had sadly become neglected over the years.
The Norwich Fringe Project provides a caring and compassionate atmosphere for young people to learn about and work in their environment by partaking in woodland management, restoration and conservation. By implementing structured, focused and fun tasks, they help to foster capabilities and strengths, and provide positive outcomes for young people’s futures. It has been amazing to witness the transformations flourish because of hands on experience and opportunity; as well as see self esteem, well being and confidence soaring.
Friends of Danby Wood is a relatively new group only coming together in 2016. Our aim is to improve the biodiversity, wildlife, fauna, access, to this wonderful amenity for all to enjoy. We have over 30 keen volunteers of all ages and we are delighted to support The Norwich Fringe Project and have their guidance and help.
