Get involved in Viewpark

The Viewpark Conservation Group needs the support of the community in a variety of differing projects. Some of these are listed in the menu to the left.

The Viewpark Conservation Group is looking for volunteers to help on the committee, and on the ground.

In the image above, young people gathered in the Glen to save the 'Bat Tree'. What will you do?

Our major task of raising funds to buy The Glen was successful, but now we need to makr the estate a safe and pleasant place to be.

Viewpark Conservation Group will be forming sub-groups to help with the estate administration.  Could you contribute to Restoration and Health and Safety, Marketing and Publicity, Finance and Fundraising or a Youth Advisory Group?

With the estate is in community ownership, we are now looking for help running activities in The Glen and to maintain the land.

This project is for the benefit of the community, and we need community support to make it work.  Please get in touch to discuss how you can share your skills and knowledge. You might also like to attend our fortnightly open meetings.
