Helping Hands for the Woods
Today we had a new group of willing volunteers giving time to keep Warley Woods looking good. They were a team of staff from “Community Spaces” at Groundwork UK. They are the team that administer grants on behalf of the Big Lottery for improving green spaces. They were actually the funder for The Wilderness and they came en masse to help maintain it. They were a lovely group and even left cake behind for us!
We are often host to team days or away days of this kind. The massive person power they bring really helps to get a signficiant piece of maintenance done, all in one go. It also helps our own volunteers see improvements being made and letting them move on to the next thing on the never ending list. This year already we have been visited by Ernst and Young and other groups are booking up too. Including the third year running for Virgin Trains stalwarts, the second year running for University of Birmingham and newcomers Zurich Insurance. Thank you to all of them. There is still room for more and lots more work to come – bring your team down to Warley Woods for the day!
