Join Croydon ACE Team

The Conservation Volunteers Action for Croydon's Environment team organises regular task days every Wednesday and Thursday in different parks and woodlands in and around Croydon. Volunteers either meet us at the work site at around 9.45am or meet the minibus at 9.30am outside the Crown Court on Altyre Road opposite the Croydon Park Hotel. We usually work until around 4pm and the minibus returns passengers to the pick up point at about 4.30pm. On the day you will need to wear clothes suitable for outdoor work and bring a packed lunch. We will provide gloves, tools, and tea & coffee. Our project leaders will guide you through the work we will be doing each day and provide training on using tools and safe working.

To join us you just need to register with us by completing one of our volunteer welfare forms. Please contact us at our e-mail address (see below) and we will send you one of the forms to complete. Once we confirm you are registered with us you are then free to join us on as many project days as you wish. Some people come out with us on every project day, some one day a week, and other people just come out whenever they have a free day. If you want to see photos from our recent projects, they are available on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/tcvcroydon

We currently publish our programme in 4 month blocks. For more information on future projects, take a look at our current programme.

Croydon Ponds Project

TCV are working with local people to research the ecology and history of Croydon's many public ponds. This Heritage Lottery Funded project aims to help connect people with their local ponds, update and improve existing knowledge of them, and ensure they are effectively cared for long into the future.

We are looking for volunteers to help us with ecological surveys, archive research and practical conservation work. No previous experience is necessary.
