The fabulous Friends of Limpsfield Common have a brand new website and Facebook page that details all their amazing projects, how to join and much more. Check them out at http://friendsoflimpsfieldcommon.com or head to the Facebook Page.
This dedicated group of around 40 volunteers meet every week to help the National Trust to keep Limpsfield Common and surrounds in great condition so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
Their work includes clearing, thinning and maintenance of the beautiful woodland areas; maintenance and updates of the air raid shelters; and under the creative direction of volunteer Peter Wade, they have created, maintain and continue to add to the incredibly popular family attractions, Homes for Woodland Creatures at Ridlands Grove.
David Claridge, Chair of the NT Limpsfield Common Local Committee explains the role of the Friends of Limpsfield Common. “We are an advisory group to Mark Richards the Head Ranger for the National Trust in this area. The Friends are a group of supporters of the Committee and NT.”
“There are about 200 members that pay £10 a year to support good works on the Common, such as the Animal houses in Ridlands Grove, which were created by a NT volunteer,” says David. “There are over 40 volunteers that help keep the Common in good shape and the Committee uses Friends money to support their equipment needs.”
If you have some spare time and/or want to donate to the Friends, all help is very welcome and all help goes towards enabling the Friends’ good work to continue. Go to the website’s Volunteer page to find out how you can help.
