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 Nicola Phipps in co-ordination with HMWT.
In addition HMWT run a reserve work party that 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.
PLEASE NOTE, there are no reserve work parties in April and May to avoid disturbing breeding wildlife. There may however be some HMWT led nature walks in the reserve.
