About this opportunity from Wellbeing at Garons Park

We have created a large wildlife pond within the Nature School at Garon Park. The pond will be used to support children’s and community learning on the site but it is designed to be a place of tranquility and reflection.
We are looking for volunteers who can help us to continue to develop and maintain the pond so that it encourages wildlife to the site and supports the learning and enjoyment by the wider community.
Liam King our conservation officer will be on hand to provide support and guidance on what is required but equally if someone has previous experience and expertise we would love to hear from them.

Volunteers are able to support us flexibly depending on their other commitments and availability.
All volunteers are required to complete a short induction, undertake safeguarding and health and safety training as we are a site that is regularly visited by children and vulnerable adults so we need to ensure we are able to keep everyone safe.
Volunteers can work independently or with friends/others which ever is preferred.

Volunteers are welcome to join us for a complementary meal when volunteering.

Friendly nature and willingness to help

Volunteers will be asked to read through key policies to ensure you are able to keep yourself and others safe while volunteering. We will also ask you to complete a short induction.
