What our volunteers say

'I like the task focused friendships and being outdoors and that every week is different.' - Judith
'I like the open air and company. I have learned so much from our Rangers Paul and Dave, and I get to use a pitchfork. I get to see the improvements we have made to the parks, especially here at The Breck, it gives me a huge sense of achievement. I am retired so it gives me a structure to my week and I love to see the beauty, seeing the views and creating new ones.' - Dave
'I like taking down invasive trees, putting up new fencing and gates and helping other people access the park. I love the area, especially along the see front, it is so beautiful. We have a great crowd of people.' - Mike
'I like meeting new people and the tasks mean that you always have something to talk about. I really enjoy working with the Ranger, and have learned so much. There is never any pressure and each week I feel I can do more and become more helpful. It gives a great feeling - to belong to something and somewhere like this.' - Janet
