Volunteering in Dorset’s Greenspaces – more than a link to the Countryside

The East Dorset Green Spaces Team are looking for more volunteers to become part of an expanding network of enthusiastic individuals, who help take responsibility for maintaining our rights of way and conservation sites. Whether you are looking for a great day out in the countryside, a way to get active and take more exercise, or a first step into a career in the countryside or conservation sector - volunteering is a great way to meet like-minded people and learn more about your local countryside sites, and gain some new skills. This is a wonderful opportunity to enhance or discover more about conservation, rights of way maintenance, countryside furniture (gates and stiles) and more. We will provide the training, tools, gloves and refreshments!


For those who volunteer regularly there may be an opportunity for additional advanced training in the use of power tools, wildlife ID and first aid. Helping your local team maintain the rights of way in your area could not only benefit your own enjoyment of the countryside, but enable and encourage others to enjoy and value these important links, getting people out into the wilder spaces and beyond! For more information please contact Kate Martin on 01425 483809 or email: kate.martin@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk or the Clerk to the Parish Council 07887 932665 or clerk@holtparishcouncil.org.uk  The local teams have already started and there is plenty more to do so if you would like to join us then please get in touch.

You can report a problem directly to Dorset County Council at Rights of way - Dorset Council and find useful information on rights of way.
