The team of volunteers is fronted by Peter Collins. Who with the help and enthusiasm of the group bring the various project programmes to life. Whether it be hedge laying, Tree Bog building or observing the wildlife. We have a broad range of ages and encourage common-sense and witty banter on our work party day.
The project is based on a 3.5 acre site in Brompton Regis on the banks of the River Pulham. There will be opportunities for volunteers to assist with on-site conservation tasks such as coppicing, hedge laying and riverside management which benefit species such as Kestrel, Owls, Kingfishers, Red Deer, hedgehogs, slow worms, bats and trout which are all found on site as well as surveying the flora and fauna that the site attracts throughout the year.
A number of years ago, I met these two gentlemen at The Festival of the Tree at Westonbirt Arboretum along with their very respected wives. Little did I realise then we were all to become great friends. Both Phil and Paul; were both larger than life characters in every sense of the word, providing great humour and banter every occasion we met up. Without their financial help and support we would not have our superb shelter canopies at The Riverside Project. A very big thank you to Phil & Louise Hutton and Paul & Jane Mehrer. It is with great sadness to say that both Phil and Paul passed away leaving a big hole in all our lives.” Never forgotten”
