Beautiful Belton to host event for volunteers on 7th March 2020

You are cordially invited to the first volunteer network event of 2020, which is taking place at beautiful Belton House, Lincolnshire. This is on Saturday 7th March and we’d love to see you there!


Once again we have an exciting agenda, please see this below. In the morning we’ll provide you with news and updates relevant to your volunteering with the Woodland Trust. Heather Cook, Project Development Officer for the Londonthorpe project will tell you all about our joint project with the National Trust which focusses on three key themes, nature, health and history and investigative work has uncovered some fascinating finds! Members of the Londonthorpe Woodland Working group will tell you about the activity they’ve been involved in and there will be a chance to network with other Woodland Trust volunteers and staff members during the day.


Lunch will be provided and in the afternoon we’ll explore Belton’s beautiful formal gardens .


We are looking forward to catching up with you at this event. It provides us with an opportunity to thank you for your support and hard work, which we are most grateful for!


Booking is essential so that we can plan our resources, so if you would like to come along, contact Amanda Brookes (07917895071 amandabrookes@woodlandtrust.org.uk). Please confirm your place with us and let us know if you have any dietary requirements by 21st February 2020.


We really hope that you can make it, looking forward to seeing you there!


With best wishes
