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.

With Matt’s experience, knowledge and guidance our Eagles have had two brilliant sessions thus far creating space for both our community and wildlife to enjoy. The Eagles are already looking forward to their next session!!! Thank you Matt!

The Fringe Project works to conserve the landscape and wildlife of our local countryside, and equally importantly it involves local communities, volunteer groups, schools and businesses in this important task.  It provides them with an opportunity to make a positive difference to their local environment.

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.
