Berkshire team by Adrian Wallington

Our regional groups in the Chilterns, East Berkshire and Mid-Berkshire play key roles in raising the profile of BBOWT in their area, helping to raise vital funds and increase membership by organising local events and volunteer work parties. Volunteers are needed to serve on committees and to help with activities such as:

  • conservation projects in their own locality,
  • organising walks and evening talks,
  • running stalls at fêtes and charity days,
  • raising funds for the Trust,
  • recruiting members and volunteers,
  • selling BBOWT merchandise,
  • producing local newsletters about local wildlife and conservation.
     

Chilterns Group

Dancersend

Dancersend by Mick Jones

A volunteer group covering the Chilterns from Aylesbury to Amersham, Tring to High Wycombe. 

Our group collaborates closely with the Bucks staff team based at College Lake to involve local volunteers in conservation, events, fundraising and increasing awareness of the Wildlife Trust's aims.

You do not need to be a member of the Trust to join the Chilterns group. If you want to come together with wildlife enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, please get in touch. It's a great way to meet people, pick up new skills and ideas, see fresh places and have fun in the process.

We have a year-round programme of events, work parties and social occasions for you to enjoy. Whether you'd just like to join in one of our activities, or if you can spare some time for conservation work or to help organise our programme, we look forward to hearing from you.

East Berkshire Group

Woolley Firs by Ric Mellis

We are a voluntary fundraising group covering all of Berkshire east of Reading, including Wokingham, Maidenhead, Slough, Windsor and Bracknell.

We are always looking for new volunteers to help support our events and sales/fundraising efforts. You don't need to be a member of the Trust to join the group - we simply ask that you come along with plenty of enthusiasm.

Our group aims to increase awareness of the Trust, and to raise funds primarily through the selling of BBOWT goods at local fairs held throughout the year, street collections, and sales of Christmas trees.

Walks, talks and training courses are organised at various times. Some of these events are run in conjunction with other charitable organisations. 

As with all small charitable groups, our activities are determined by the availability, interests and skills of those active within the group. If you can contribute your time and skills, or are interested in finding out more about what we do, we would be pleased to hear from you.

Contact the East Berkshire Group to see how you can get involved:

Hosehill Lake

Hosehill Lake by Adrian Wallington

A voluntary fundraising group focusing on Reading and the surrounding area. Our group raises funds for BBOWT through plant, book and bric-a-brac sales, walks and talks, which are run in conjunction with the Reading Natural History Society. We also strive to raise awareness of the work of BBOWT and aim to inspire people about local wildlife.

The committee has a number of dedicated members, but we are always looking for new volunteers to help support our events and sales. You don’t need to be a member of the Trust to join the Mid-Berkshire Group; we simply ask that you come along with plenty of enthusiasm.
