Welcome to Thorndon Guardians!  

Who We Are

Thorndon Guardians is a group of like-minded volunteers who care about the park and all it has to offer us. We aim to work alongside the rangers and the owners (Essex County Council), to protect, promote and improve Thorndon Country Park


What We Do

Our objectives are to safeguard and improve biodiversity within the park and to promote the safe enjoyment of the park’s facilities for all of its users.
Working with the rangers we devise and undertake projects to help fulfill our objectives, these include, among others, conservation work, construction tasks and wildlife surveying/recording. We also undertake warden activities, such as checking on grazing animals, reporting hazards/safety issues and udertakeing some general admin tasks.
We aim to raise funds for our activities by applying for grants and organising meetings and community events. Our aim is also to involve local people and local businesses in helping us to improve and promote Thorndon Park.


Why We Need You

We need your enthusiasm and energy to help us pursue our aims and objectives. Being involved with our projects brings the opportunity to make new friends, have fun and learn many new skills.
If you would like to join us, just follow the link on the sidebar to the left. Anyone over the age of 16 regardless of their abilities is welcome to join Thorndon Guardians.

Members are always welcome to bring along their children to help. 

You’ll discover that aiding the community and Thorndon Park gives a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure to you and your family.
