Our woodland volunteers meet every Monday and the third Saturday of each month, at the Cabin in Badgers Wood, just before 10am and returning around 12:15pm. See Publication & Links, Maps and Guides for the Cabin location.

No experience is necessary - just turn up!  For further information, email Ian Chambers (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or call 01275 463315.

Volunteering is a great way to spend an hour or two - apart from being friendly and sociable, tea and biscuits are ALWAYS provided! Backwell Environment Trust (BET) is 100% operated by volunteers – our trustees, members, supporters and advisors. As we have no paid staff, we can therefore ensure that all the money we raise, or is donated, can be used for the benefit of the whole community. However in today’s society, people are now busier than ever before, so we are always on the look out for new volunteers to join in and help with us the many varied tasks our trusty volunteers take on.

Even if you only have an hour or so to spare each month rest assured we will make you very welcome! Absolutely no experience is necessary – we will supply all the training and tools as well as lashings of tea & biscuits! So maybe you would be interested in getting involved with our woodland activities on tasks such as fencing, dry stone walling, hedge laying, coppicing, hay making, etc.
