Events

Come and enjoy the Park and meet other people who love it too ! We organise and help others with events in Ludwell Valley Park. We are keen to do more and hear your ideas – get in touch, get involved!

We need volunteers who can help us to run conservation sessions over the autumn and winter. If you are interested in helping to run simple,enjoyable conservation tasks, with full support given, do get in touch. 

We have come to the end of our winter conservation sessions, and so taking a break from events – other than fun ones and the odd litter pick – until the autumn.
