Chiltern Society Volunteer Newsletter

From Jenny Gilmore, Director of the Chiltern Society

The Chiltern Society is launching this newsletter to advertise our work parties throughout the Chilterns and also work parties run by partner organisations. In addition, it will list new initiatives and other volunteer vacancies. If you know anyone who would be interested in getting involved please do pass this newsletter on to them. All volunteers are very welcome and you do not have to be a member of the Chiltern Society to do voluntary work with us, although many people do join the Chiltern Society later on, once they get to know our groups and see the good work we do caring for the Chilterns!

For any queries about volunteering, getting this newsletter or vacancies, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator Geoff Wiggett on 01442 875906 or email

Work parties for November to January – Would you like to get involved?
The Chiltern Society is in the process of taking on the care of a number of nature reserves. We already run a busy schedule of work parties on our sites, on common land, at Forestry Commission woods, in ponds, on footpaths and improving access to the countryside. If you would like to go along to any of the work parties, please do call Geoff Wiggett for details. New volunteers are very welcome.
