Volunteering is just great fun!

To help maintain the Billy Trail for everyone to enjoy and to support its’ nature volunteers are getting involved in caring for it.

Through monthly practical conservation sessions our volunteers have been carrying out activities such as hedge laying to provide habitat for insects and birds; scrub clearance to increase the amount of open ground for wildflowers to grow; clearing back overhanging vegetation along footpaths to name just a few.

As well as benefiting wildlife and visitors the conservation sessions are a great chance to get involved, meet new people, learn new skills and be active in the great outdoors.

You do not need to have any prior skills or knowledge at the session leader will talk through how to use the tools and demonstrate how undertake the activity. Tools, gloves and the much welcome tea & biscuits are provided. All volunteers need to bring is their own lunch and enthusiasm to get stuck in.

Our sessions take place on the second Wednesday of each month from 10am till around 3pm. If you would like to come along to any of the sessions then please let us know. This ensures we bring enough tools, tea & biscuits. Contact The Conservation Volunteers on 02380 402593 or hayling-billy@tcv.org.uk

    I have tried to email without result.
    I run a FB group about Ghost stories of SE England.
    I wondered if I might post the Railway station ghost story of Peterd, from 2013.

    Full details and thanks would be credited.

    Thanks.. Christine Nye-Gibbons
