Have some free time and looking for a new challenge? Why not help preserve one of England’s rarest natural habitats.

The Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project is looking for enthusiastic and willing volunteers to help maintain and improve chalk streams at Ashby cum Fenby in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Volunteers will be involved in the practical conservation of the chalk streams and their banks, helping to provide and improve the habitats of local wildlife including trout, otters and water voles.

No experience is needed, but you must be physically fit and confident when working near or in water. Safety training will be provided to volunteers in the sessions.

You can provide a helping hand on Thursday April 30, from 10.30am until 3pm at Moorhouse Farm, Barton Street, Ashby-cum-Fenby.

To sign up contact Will Bartle, Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Monitoring Officer, on William.bartle@lincolnshire.gov.uk or phone Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service on 01507 609740.
