About the event

We have plans for two very special projects this winter and need plenty of help to make them happen!  We're running a volunteer event over two days at the end of November to enable us to:

  1. FRIDAY - Create a new tree sparrow corridor in an area where numbers have grown from a handful to hundreds over the course of the project.
  2. SATURDAY - Plant beech trees around three clumps along the Ridgeway so that as we lose the existing trees (which are approaching old age), we won't lose these iconic landscape features.  UPDATE: WE NOW HAVE ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS TASK

Please come along and give us a hand - all tools will be provided (but bring gloves and a spade if you have one), and training given on the day.  Join us for an hour, a morning/afternoon, or longer - this is a chance for you to help shape the landscape we all love so much!

This project has been supported through the North Wessex Downs Sustainable Development Fund – for more information or to apply please visit
