Want to volunteer?

Green Gym is fun and free! We welcome all ages and levels of fitness - under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. A range of activities is usually on offer, subject to the site and tasks for the day. New volunteers are shown how to use the hand tools effectively and safely (we do not use power tools), and we provide personal protection equipment where necessary. Training courses are available from time to time.

We welcome new members, but currently our numbers are high, and we need to consider health and safety and make sure we bring enough tools etc. So if you are interested in joining us, we ask that you call Alison Hounslow on 07528 376399 before attending to get more information, or e-mail info.iwgreengym@gmail.com
