At the Swallowfield Show a member of the Shinfield Parish Volunteer Group approached us asking whether we would mind advertising for a new volunteer position which has just become available with them, so if you live near Shinfield and want to get involved, keep reading.
‘The need has arisen for a volunteer Countryside Warden to work with Shinfield Volunteers.
The initial brief is to identify areas of special interest and, with the assistance of other volunteers, lead efforts to manage, promote, and publicise Shinfield’s wildlife heritage.
Eventually it is hoped to undertake detailed surveys of the local ecology, record sites of wildlife interest and monitor the progress of existing habitat management plans for local wildlife sites, but one step at a time.
If you h ave an active interest in local natural flora and fauna and are interested in developing this rewarding role, or would like to assist, please get in touch with Phil on 01189 882804.’
