Description

Volunteers are always welcome to help with the activities that take place on the field. At different times during the year we prepare areas for planting hedges, tidying areas, keeping down undergrowth, treating wooden benches, wildflower seeding, delivering newsletters, litter picking and help with the general maintenance of the area. We also maintain gateways and paths and will be preparing areas for ponds in the near future.
If you would like to get involved in maintaining a local meadow for community use, enjoy meeting other volunteers and getting physical with nature you will enjoy the volunteer days and activities at Park Fields. You don't need any special skills but most of the activities involve some physical exertion.
We would also welcome any volunteers with special skills or experience of using tools and equipment involved in environmental projects, for example hedge laying.

Most roles require no specific skills or knowledge, just a willingness to help on volunteer days.
We would also love to hear from anyone who has skills in hedge laying, ground preparation, installing benches or seating. If you have been involved in any other environmental projects or have experience or qualifications in the maintenance of a field, hedges, ponds or environmental educational programmes, we would be pleased to hear from you.

The car park near to Park Fields is situated just off the main road leading from Neston to Parkgate. The car park is on the right hand side of the road on a bend, just before the Wirral Way entry points and the Cricket Club.
The field can also be reached via Wood Lane.
Disabled access - The field is accessible but the terrain is uneven.

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
