Volunteering Events

You are here

We have a range of practical opportunities for people to get involved in volunteering at Skelton Grange - including wildlife surveys, training events and practical volunteer days.

Please see below for details and get in touch if you need any more information. We welcome new volunteers at all times, so please come along, but please get in touch to let us know if you're planning to come along to any of the events (there's a short registration form at the bottom of this page).

All events take place at Skelton Grange Environment Centre unless specified otherwise below.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult for all events.

Directions to the centre can be found here.

Regular Friday Volunteering - The Green Team

Join the Green Team at Skelton Grange Environment Centre - regular opportunities for everyone to come along and help out with some practical tasks on our site. You don't need any experience, just enthusiasm!

  • Please arrive from 9:30am for cup of tea ready for a 10:00am start.
  • Generally sessions run until 3:30pm unless advertised otherwise.
  • Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch. Wear old clothes that you don't mind getting mucky, and dress for the weather.

The Green Team - upcoming sessions and details

Every Friday 9:30 - 3:30 rain or shine! We will be running a range of activities preparing the site and veg garden for its autumn and winter season, including pond clearance, woodland management and looking after the paths and structures on the site. More information soon, and do call us if you want more detail :)

Friday 12th December 10am - 3:30pm Winter Woodland Festival

The Winter woodland festival makes its return - a day of green woodwork, winter crafts, festive cheer and lots more! There will be the chance to make reindeers and wreaths, to whittle a spoon or a woodland gnome, and to enjoy some tasty stew round the fire. Come along for as long or as little as you want!

Please Note: the Winter Festival will be the final Green Team of the year - we will start again on the 9th of January.

Please note that all dates and practical content are subject to changes.
