Conservation Volunteers: Reserve Maintenance @ Stansfeld Park | England | United Kingdom

We’ll be working for the Oxford Trust who have taken on the job of rejuvenating the site partly as a local amenity and partly an educational resource. Today’s task has been arranged with Dr. Roger Baker, the Trust’s Outdoor Learning and Ecology Manager, to mark the public opening of Stansfeld Park with a family-friendly set of jobs to do, including the reinforcement of the many paths with bark chippings. For more info nearer the day see the OCV weekly task email, and for more on the exciting prospects for Stansfeld Park under the management of The Oxford Trust see their website: http://theoxfordtrust.co.uk/stansfeld-education-centre/.

We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear.

Under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:

1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am

or meet us at the task site itself if you prefer.

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand.

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!

Swap shop – bring any unwanted item in good condition that you can carry and take as many new ones

Clothes upcycling demo – professionally hosted demonstration for how to go beyond clothes mending towards jazzing them up

Kids’ upcycling workshop – pop-in for either “If Bins Could Talk” or “Recycle a Poem” workshops and enjoy making new stuff out of old with the family

Food Surplus Café – enjoy tea, coffee, refreshments and cake crafted and sold by a local youth club using fresh surplus food

Stalls – waste-free products sales and information from local charitable, non-profit, independent and grassroots organisations

All surplus items from the swap shop will go to Thames Valley Air Ambulance. This exciting event is brought to you by Oxford Direct Services, Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council and would not be possible without the help of our wonderful community partners, including:
