Why volunteer at Hamworthy Park?
The Friends of Hamworthy Park are popular and actively working to preserve and improve Hamworthy Park for future generations. One of the activities that they lead is the Hands on at Hamworthy sessions.
Hands on at Hamworthy sessions include activities such as litter picking, pruning plants and tidying flower beds, and small projects such as the recent removal of the ‘sheep pens’ from the park to improve the area. These sessions are so popular that the Friends of Hamworthy Park are looking to add additional weekend sessions!
