We litter pick once a month to support the task of Watford Council in maintaining the Park and twice a month we also support Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust (HMWT) with the nature reserve. Litter picking work parties are on the third Saturday of each month – meeting at 10am in the park at the Hub. This work party lasts for 2 hours – finishing at 12am.
Reserve work parties also meet on the third Saturday of each month – also meeting at 10am at the Hub. This work party usually lasts a little longer – finishing at 1pm – but any time volunteering is better than none. The team is led by assistant warden Jon Pettifer in co-ordination with HMWT.
In addition HMWT run a reserve work party tha meets on the Tuesday before the above . This work party is attended by FoCP members , HMWT members and others and lasts from 10am to 3pm – so bringing a picnic lunch is handy if you are able to spend the day on the reserve – again, any time volunteering is useful and better than none. This team meet now also meet at the Hub and is led by Rob Hopkins, HMWT reserve officer.
