Most of the work to care for, maintain and improve our local community green spaces is organised and undertaken entirely by passionate local volunteers. If you’d like to lend a hand please sign up to join in, no previous experience is necessary.

We usually run events where you can just drop-in on the day, but at the moment due to current Covid-19 regulations booking in advance will be strictly necessary.
Over the summer we like to run some extra Balsam Bahing sessions in Elmbridge Meadows Nature Reserve making use of the lovely summer evenings to tackle this menace, before it’s able to disperse it’s seeds.
Balsam Bashing is a really fun activity where we pull up masses of the invasive plant Himalayan Balsam which outcompetes much of out local flora, and causes damage to our river banks.
It’s really easy to pull out, and really satisfying to twist and snap to prevent future growth.
Please note unlike most of our other volunteers sessions for these events we’ll be meeting at the Elmbridge Meadows entrance between No.s 114 & 116 Elmbridge Avenue (KT5 9HB).
