Volunteers welcome!

Hello and welcome to the website of Chipping Norton Green Gym.  We are an independent community group that works on conservation projects in Chipping Norton and the surrounding area and costs nothing to join.  We normally work on Wednesday mornings (10am-1pm) – see  our current programme.

We are a friendly easy-going group who welcome new volunteers.  The aim is to have fun, get some exercise and fresh air while helping to care for the environment.  No prior skills or experience are necessary.

“Want to get fitter? Enjoy being outdoors?”
Two new members relax during a tea-break.

A range of jobs are available and all abilities are welcome.  We clear brambles and scrub, remove rubbish from streams, plant trees and hedges, mend fences and much more.

We work on a variety of community sites including Chippy Common and Pool Meadow, Kingham Millennium Wood, The Glyme Valley and Hook Norton nature reserves, school gardens and Chipping Norton Community Orchard which we planted in 2010.  Lifts may be available for those who cannot easily get to the worksites.

We sometimes work in the mud, in the snow, among hat-high vegetation ... but also in beautiful surroundings, and have fun in the sun.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Jenny on 01608 643269 or by email jennyharrington@btinternet.com.

Sites welcome! 

If you manage a community site which could do with our help, do get in touch with our Programme Organiser, Hilary Norris, on 01295 264456 or at hils2012@hotmail.co.uk. It’s surprising what a gang of volunteers can achieve in a morning – and much cheaper than contractors!
