Throughout the year our volunteers are working to keep Oakham looking great – we hold regular working parties to maintain flowerbeds and adopted areas, and our team of fundraisers host a number of events to raise money for all our projects.
We welcome everyone at our working parties – our volunteers are people of all ages and abilities, and you don’t need to have green fingers! Simply turn up on the day, or contact us if you would like to chat about the work we do.
Sunday 4 June, 9.30am – BIG SUMMER PLANTING DAY
Join us for the biggest planting day of the year! We’ll be starting at the library to plant up the flowerbeds and containers with this year’s planting scheme. Please bring gloves, hand tools and kneelers if you have them.
Please note that the BBC will be with us to film for their new programme, so if you are bringing children and would like them to be on camera, please contact us for a form that both parents/guardians need to sign ahead of the event. If you’d like to be on camera please avoid wearing clothes with logos/brands and anything white or with stripes.
For any volunteers not wanting to be on camera please just let us know and we’ll arrange for you to plant in areas that will not be filmed.
