There are lots of fantastic environmental events happening locally every week including talks, walks and ad-hoc volunteering on conservation work parties/days and gardening activities. Please contact the event organisers for further information. Please see this page for information on the different types/descriptions of volunteering in the environmental sector.
Use the ‘categories’ to select the type of activity and the ‘tags’ for the specific themes i.e. Friendly Parks for All, a programme of activities for people with dementia and their carers.
Join The Holly Lodge Centre on their Christmas Concert at Christ Church; a special evening of songs and readings, with local choirs and celebrity readers.
Entrance £20 (under 16s £5) includes mulled wine and mince pies and Christmas cheer.
The Centre offers a range of educational activities for groups of children, young people and adults – particularly those with disabilities, focused on the nature and Victorian heritage of the Park. HRH Princess Alexandra has been the Centre’s Royal Patron since 2007. Other patrons include Mike Fitt OBE (Founding Patron), Sir David Attenborough, Peter Davison, Baroness Susan Kramer, Ben Shephard, Tenors Un Limited (Paul Martin, Jem Sharples and Scott Ciscon), Robert Holmes and Adrian Mills.
The centre operates thanks to volunteers and funding from trusts and foundations, fund-raising events and individual donations. Charges to visitors amount to only 15% of our costs: the Centre does not receive any monetary funding from central or local government.
