Volunteer gardening at Walpole Park

31 December 2026


If you have a spare couple of hours and enjoy working outdoors, then why not join our weekly volunteer gardening sessions at Walpole Park every Wednesday and Thursday.

We are a friendly group and welcome new volunteers to join us garden in the park. You don't need to commit to coming every week, just when it suits you.

New volunteers must book an induction, please contact

You need to be reasonably mobile as you will be walking and some tasks involve bending, for example weeding.

Gloves and tools are provided.

Wear clothes suitable for gardening and the weather.

Sturdy shoes or boots are the most appropriate footwear for your safety.
