If you have an interest in
nature or environmental conservationism, then volunteer with us on
the first Sunday of any month doing practical conservation tasks in North East
London's largest open space, the Lea Valley Regional Park. We have
done volunteering tasks from The East India Dock Basin on the Thames to Coppermill
Fields in Waltham Abbey. These practical tasks range from woodland management,
such as coppicing, the countryside skills of hedge laying and dead hedging to the
removal of invasive vegetation with a traditional Bramble Bash.
Everybody is welcome to volunteer with LBCV doing hands-on
practical conservation tasks in North East London, on the first Sunday
of the month. No experience is needed; we provide the training and tools
along with the tea, coffee and biscuits, bring your own packed lunch. Please wear suitable clothing for the weather and stout footwear. We will
endeavour to do the planned task, no matter what the weather is doing; a task
will only be changed if the weather makes it unsafe to do the planned work.
Please arrive from
9:30am onwards at 1 Connaught Close, Leyton, London E10 7QS, for a prompt
10am departure. The meeting place is the house opposite the Lea Valley
Riding Centre on Lea Bridge Road. Bus numbers 48, 55 and 56 run along the
Lea Bridge Road, alight by the Riding Centre. There is inside cycle parking available at
Connaught Close. If you are going to be late, or wish to join us on
site at the start of the task, please email or text 07757 766950 before 9am
on the task day, so we can provide enough tools. Please provide a contact number
so we can inform you if the task has to be changed at the last minute.
