No special skills are required, just plenty of enthusiasm, energy, and a desire to help conserve Kent’s wildlife. Gloves & tools are provided.

Make new friends, learn new skills, enjoy a day in the country, have a day of peace & quiet, get a day of exercise in the fresh air. The tasks are suited to all levels of physical ability and volunteers are encouraged to do the task at their own pace. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Some tasks may be unsuitable for children so please check in advance with the warden or secretary.

We are able to accommodate Duke of Edinburgh awards candidates [all levels] seeking ‘voluntary service’ & can submit assessments & pictures on line by prior arrangement.

We now have a Facebook page! Google ‘rgpnr’ for latest news.
