Volunteer for wild projects

A chance to become a volunteer in the Hartlepool countryside is on offer later this month.

A squad of volunteers called the Wild Wednesday team wants to hear from more people interested in joining them.

On Wednesday, January 9, the team will visit parks in Hartlepool to do review the projects they need to do.

People should meet at the notice board at the entrance to the Family Wood, off Elwick Road. Organisers have urged anyone interested in taking part to wrap up warm and bring sturdy footwear.

Transport to the event is also available and anyone wanting more details should contact (01429) 853325.
