Have you ever fancied doing some fun volunteering in Richmond?

The Richmond Council Parks department have teamed up with Glendales Nature’s Gym.

This is a volunteer group that takes part in conservation work throughout local parks and nature reserves.

It is a great opportunity to meet new friends, to get out in the fresh air, learn some new skills, take some time out.
