Yaxley Countryside Volunteers


Come & meet the volunteers at the Yaxley Festival:

May 13th – 15th 2022

We are a group of volunteers who work together to improve the natural environment within the Cambridgeshire village of Yaxley.

Yaxley Countryside Volunteers began in 1984 when three friends, Dave Miners, Bob Oakley & Reg Bingham, got together to try and improve the environment for the residents wildlife. At that time there were very few trees in Yaxley & our main target was to increase the number of trees in the parish. We have since planted over 3000 trees & hundreds of meters of hedges, dug numerous ponds & carried out lots of tasks on behalf of residents and the Parish Council.

We meet most weeks, and are always eager to welcome anyone who has a similar interest in improving their local area to the benefit of all.

The volunteers meet Fridays for 2 hrs to complete ongoing projects or maintain existing areas for the benefit & enjoyment of Yaxley residents & wildlife. If you want to get involved & meet the volunteers please use the contact details below. No experience necessary & everyone welcome
