HNCF logo Working parties

Working parties do various jobs from the major, such as felling trees to create grassland rides, to jobs as simple as cutting back bramble from paths or picking up litter. All are useful in keeping the reserves attractive to both wildlife and people. You get some gentle exercise in pleasant surroundings. Tools are provided and volunteers are fully insured. Approximate finishing times are shown but there is no obligation to stay until the end.

Every Wednesday we run a working party in the Stanmore area, usually working on Stanmore Common, Stanmore Country Park and Bentley Priory. For all Wednesday working parties the meeting point, at 10:30AM, is the Stanmore Common car park, off Warren Lane, close to the Priory Drive stop on the 142 bus. From there we will walk or arrange transport to the site where we are working.

We also run many weekend working parties in Stanmore Common, Bentley Old Vicarage, Newton Farm and Roxbourne Rough. See the table below for the full timetable.

The yellow dots on the sketch map on the left shows the location of the sites. Click on a dot for information on that site including the contact details for the site warden and the location where we will meet.
