Getting involved outdoors

Have your say

COUNTRYSIDE fans are being invited to take more of an interest in the great outdoors.

People are invited along to a volunteer taster day at the Summerhill Visitor Centre, in Summerhill Lane, off Catcote Road, this Sunday.

The event will include hands-on experience for anyone wanting to find out more about volunteering with Hartlepool Borough Council’s countryside wardens and the Summerhill team.

There will also be a chance to try your hand at coppicing, which is a way of managing woodland.

The event runs from 10.30am until 3pm and booking is essential.

People are advised to wear waterproofs and sturdy footwear for the taster day and to take along a packed lunch.

To book a place, call (01429) 284584.
