Volunteer Community Days

Have you heard about Volunteer Community Days? These are days when your employer can free you to volunteer to help your community by joining an approved group near you whilst still being paid.

Clarion is one of the companies involved in Sherford and they have added the Friends of Sherford Country park to their list of approved organisations for this scheme. They will become the first company to send their employees to help with a project in the Country Park at Sherford.

On October 6th the Country Park Group is expecting to welcome a group of volunteers to help progress the project around the stream area. The aim of this project is to clear the vegetation from around the stream, reinstate the pool and create a wetland where a wide variety of wildlife can find new homes. There have already been sightings of frogs and dragon flies around the stream which is a sure sign that they will come back with the environment improvement envisaged. The Group has also been given a grant by Wild About Devon to plant the stream side with species suitable for the environment.

Now the Group can look forward to being able to make a big push on this project with the help of this band of volunteers from Clarion.

Why not ask about the Community Volunteer Day scheme where you work and come and join in working to improve the environment in your local country park?
