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, whether as individuals or who come from a company which operates a community volunteering scheme. 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.
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, the town’s Health Centre, 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.
If you are interested in joining us, please contact Jenny on 01608 643269 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. It’s surprising what a gang of volunteers can achieve in a morning – and much cheaper than contractors!
We are affiliated to national charity TCV, The Conservation Volunteers, and supported by
