A newly formed conservation group is looking for additional volunteers to help with the upkeep of a valuable community amenity space.

Chillington Wood Volunteers, or Chilli Wood Voles, are helping the Woodland Trust with the management of Chillington’s Millennium Wood and Orchard.

Visitors and residents to the orchard may have noticed a beautiful new sign at the entrance from Summerye Lane which was carved from a piece of local chestnut by the Wood Voles.

The group meet in the wood informally throughout the autumn and winter months to carry out conservation work, and are looking for more volunteers to join this “fun and worthwhile” project.

No previous experience is needed and full training will be given. If you’re interested in volunteering, please email [email protected].
