The success of the project relies entirely on the input of dedicated volunteers to regenerate the beautiful one acre site, rich in local history and ecology.

As volunteers we’re not expected to be experts, we’re people who enjoy carrying out the clearance, planting and maintenance of the site and helping visitors.

The project is also supported by members of the community on a voluntary basis in spheres such as bookkeeping, marketing, IT and printing, and at fundraising events.

Get involved

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and age from 16 to 70+. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, meet people and contribute to your local community.

A variety of tasks are undertaken, from weeding and planting, to heavier tasks such as mowing and digging, and repairing monuments. New volunteers are welcome to join in as and when they have the time. You can stay for just an hour or for the whole session.

Tools are provided, all that is required is for volunteers to wear sturdy footwear. No experience is needed.

The Project also runs an ‘Adopt a Grave’ scheme, to encourage members of the public to ‘adopt’ and look after a grave of their choice at times suitable to themselves.

Input is welcome from any school, organisation or group interested in volunteering. A friendly welcome awaits everyone.

The project team meet fortnightly throughout the year on Saturdays between 10am and 4pm.
