Give volunteering a go

With back to school merging with Halloween and flowing into Christmas, our seasonal holidays already merge into one another, so the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership have decided to get on the ‘new year, new you’ band wagon early this year. We warmly invite you to give volunteering with us a try.

The conservation volunteers go out every other Saturday and put in some exercise clearing unwanted vegetation from a range of sites around the Ring of Gullion area. “Volunteering with the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership is a fantastic opportunity to relieve the stresses and strains of the Christmas build up by letting rip on undesirable plants, not to mention making new friends and having a good chat.” says Roisin Mulgrew, Chairperson of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council. “If you find you enjoy it you can keep it up in the New Year and have a head start on resolution making, by already having one decided. It’s a kind of free outdoor gym membership,” she added.

For those of you who don’t have a liking for destruction and would prefer something more serene, join us in the tree nursery on Tuesday mornings, tending the trees of the future and putting the world to rights while we’re at it.

Upcoming volunteer days are on Saturday 18th November and 2nd December as well as every Tuesday morning in the tree nursery. For more information about volunteering with us, visit the Get Involved page or contact Alison, the Volunteer & Outreach Officer, on +4428 3082 8594 / [email protected].
