Other ways to help

Bearsted Woodland Trust has been selected for a Green Flag Award in every year since 2011. The award is a benchmark of excellence for community-led volunteer run projects of parks and green spaces based on a national standard in the UK.  Inspections are made to judge how suitable sites are for their purposes, how well kept, and how many volunteer hours are involved. 


Community Volunteering

Bearsted Woodland Trust welcomes community involvement in a variety of different ways.

Our teams of Maintenance Volunteers are out come rain or shine every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning throughout the year. They make sure our award-winning Green Space is at its best for our many visitors. Maintence work inludes grass-cutting, tree lopping, tree planting and bench making. New volunteers are always welcome to join our establsihed teams. 

Also vital to our operation are our team of newsletter deliverers. Newsletter The Woodlander is published once a year and although it is available to view on this site, many of our Members still prefer to read it the old fashioned way and our volunteers are on hand to make sure this happens.

Bearsted Woodland Trust also asks periodically for community volunteers to help with special tasks, such as large-scale tree and hedge planting projects. Watch out for announcements on our News Page.
