Helping out

The WWA site was formally opened in September 1992 by the world famous environmentalist, David Bellamy.

He said, “Environmental community projects such as this are just as important in a local sense as say, saving the Rain Forest. Not only do they provide an important contribution to environmental conservation, but also are a natural source of education for young and old, an inspiration for similar projects across the country, and of course a site of natural beauty.”

We could always do with more help and you would be very welcome. See the contacts page for details of how to get in touch.

Working parties

Volunteers are very welcome at our working parties on the site, generally held on the last Sunday of every month from approximately 10am – 1pm. Tools, camaraderie and refreshments are provided so you just need to turn up. Get in touch to find out more.
