ALL DAY – THE BIG HELP OUT!
To mark King Charles’ Festival of Volunteering, we are asking everyone to get involved in the village, by nominating a project which will enhance the biodiversity in Chetnole and/or offering up an hour or more of their time.
Examples of possible ideas: planting trees; guerrilla gardening in public spaces. Let your imagination run riot! The only considerations are: is it feasible? Does it enhance the village biodiversity? Will it need a lot of ongoing maintenance or expense?
