Volunteers meet on Saturdays and Sundays, and on Wednesdays during the week, to carry out a wide range of work that helps to maintain and improve conditions for wildlife in Wiltshire.
Work includes using traditional tools and skills to enhance the Wiltshire landscape.
No previous practical experience is necessary.
Just come along and we will provide the help, training, tools and safety kit you need.
Tasks are open to anyone and they provide a great opportunity to develop new skills, make new friends and learn more about management of the countryside.
Our activities are halted from April to September during the Summer months to allow birds and animals to have their young without disturbance unless there is emergency work to be done. The Winter season is the time when we are in full swing and we have our programme timetabling our activities at all the sites listed.
HEALTH. Please ensure you have up-to- date tetanus cover.
All you need to bring is a packed lunch and plenty to drink (as most tasks last all day) and plenty of enthusiasm!
FOOTWEAR. We recommend Wellington boots or safety boots (ideally with steel toe caps) for most tasks, and walking boots or safety boots for working on steep downland sites.
TRANSPORT. If you would need a lift, please contact the Leader who may be able to arrange transport.
We may help with your transport costs, but you need to claim for this.
AGE RANGE. WWCV tasks are open to all, but those under 18 MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult.
