Volunteer Questionnaire Results

Earlier this year we sent out our volunteer questionnaire to find out what our volunteers most enjoyed and how we could improve their experience. The results are now in.

We received 12 questionnaires back and the results were very positive. Satisfaction levels with our tasks were high. We also found that the variety of tasks we programmed in was a big advantage. Fencing, scrub clearance and bridge building were the most popular.

Learning from this feedback we have since introduced more machines to tasks where possible and removed some of the least popular tasks from our programme. We also now ensure we explain a clear end goal to each volunteer task, and have improved the frequency of our tool maintenance.

Overall the very positive results show that when volunteering with us you can expect a ‘good team spirit’ whilst ‘doing something worthwhile’ and gaining a great ‘sense of achievement’.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback and to all our volunteers for their hard work throughout the year. We hope you continue to enjoy volunteering with us.

If you haven’t volunteered with us before and would like to join please follow the link to our programme.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
