Yaxley Countryside Volunteers


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.
