Everyone needs a little help from their friends…


Chasewater is beautiful, and the ranger team need a little bit of help to keep it that way… Image from my 365days archive.

Here’s a good one for younger folk looking for experience of work as a park ranger, or maybe retired or older folk looking for something where they can meet the public – this year Staffordshire County Council are looking for volunteers to join the Chasewater weekend ranger team.

Times are difficult, and parks and open spaces across the UK are having to rely more and more on volunteers, and Chasewater is no exception – but this could be really good for folk into wildlife, gardening or who are seeking experience to carry forward into a prospective career.

If you’re interested, please do contact the ranger team on the numbers below.

Weekend Volunteers Wanted!

The rangers need your help and assistance!

We are after people to help us out at weekends, during our busiest time from April through to September. Ideally you will be over sixteen and have your own transport, but if not, it doesn’t matter as all help will be gratefully accepted!!! The work will be varied and could include some of the following:

  • Maintenance work, Grass cutting
  • Litter picking, Visitor management
  • Wildlife conservation work.

The hours are fairly flexible, either Saturday or Sunday, all we ask is that you come with a smile, show some initiative and be prepared to talk to the public!

In return you will learn about working on a busy country park, and how to look after the wildlife and people who are using it.

Please phone Rob on 07855 336 907
Or Nigel on 07772 132 896 for further details
