Volunteer Opportunities and Free Training in the Tamar Valley

Training Opportunities for Volunteers in the Tamar Trails

The Tamar Community Trust has just released details of their summer programme of volunteering opportunities and training days in the Tamar Valley.

Between now until the end of September, volunteers can help prune, tidy and maintain a number of areas throughout the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including the Tamar Trails near Gulworthy, Wacker Quay in the Lynher area and the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail. All tools, refreshments and lunch are provided.

Volunteering Tamar Valley

Dave Readman, coordinator of the Valley Volunteer scheme, says, “We have a great team of dedicated volunteers who join us regularly to help out, but we’re always grateful for a few extra pairs of hands!”

Dave continues, “This year we have introduced a number of training days, as a way of giving something back to our volunteers, providing them with practical skills that they can use while working with us or elsewhere.”

Training days include scythe use and sharpening, strimmer use and maintenance, firewood splitting and stacking, summer tree identification, step building and fencing.

For details of the programme see dates below, or for further information, please contact Dave Readman, 07410 411440, dreadman@tamarvalley.org.uk
