Get Fit in the Fresh Air!

Tuesday 10th January 2012

Volunteer practical tasks in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)

If you are looking for ways to get fit and get some fresh air after the indulgences of Christmas and New Year you could join in with one of the AONB’s volunteer tasks:

The Mendip Hills AONB Volunteer Group will be undertaking the following practical tasks in January and February:

Tuesday 24th January the group will be removing scrub and small trees from archaeological sites at the Blackmoor site near Charterhouse.  Some of the cleared scrub will be burned on site providing a warm fire to gather round for lunch!  

Saturday 4th February the group will be clearing scrub to open up a view-point at a picnic site near Axbridge.

Tuesday 7th February volunteers will be working to repair stiles on the Mendip Way near Cheddar. 

All are welcome whether or not you have volunteered before. All tasks run from 10am – 3pm with instructions, tools and training provided on the day.  All you need to bring is your lunch, drink and yourselves.

The volunteer group offers a friendly and relaxed approach and helps to carry out a variety of practical tasks and duties to help conserve the AONB.

The current programme of tasks which will take you to March 20th 2012 is available on our Volunteering page
