New nature volunteering sessions launched in Bishops Itchington

WILDLIFE will be well looked after at a new nature reserve in Bishop’s Itchington.

Staff at Warwickshire Wildlife Trust have launched a series of hands-on volunteering sessions at the new Bishop’s Hill site.

The aim is to introduce the community to the reserve and help them look after wildlife on their doorstep as well as encouraging people to spend time in nature.

Sessions are taking place fortnightly on Mondays from 10am to 1pm with the next one on November 4.

Trust spokeswoman Faye Irvine said: “There is increasing evidence of the benefits of engaging in physical activity outside for both our health and wellbeing. Indeed we see the impact of spending time volunteering outdoors for our volunteers every day. Volunteers enjoy keeping active, meeting like-minded people and learning new skills.”

No experience is required and volunteers must be over 18.

The sessions are supported by Tesco’s Bags of Help which awards grants to thousands of community projects every year.
