Fleet Pond Society organises and runs a series of volunteer conservation activities at the Pond (programme for 2008/09 is here).
The next conservation task is this coming Sunday, October 12.
If you have never been before and fancy trying it, please just turn up (details here) or else give Colin Gray a call on 01252 616183, who will be delighted to provide additional information.
Speaking from personal experience, new volunteers are made very welcome and there is a very nice friendly atmosphere overall. Tools and advice are available – you even get tea/coffee and cakes in the mid-morning break!
Interestingly the volunteers have a very wide range of ages, backgrounds and interests. To give a flavour of this, we will occasionally provide ‘spotlights’ on volunteers to explain their motivations for getting involved and what they get out of it.
Hopefully this will be an additional motivation to readers of the blog to come along and give it a go – it’s a very rewarding way of spending a Sunday morning!
