Inspire families this summer
Share your passion for all things crafty by helping with our holiday activities programme. Great experience for your CV, meet new people and even have a go and learn new skills yourself. No experience necessary, though a tolerance for noisy children would be handy! Sessions at Winlaton Mill and Prudhoe.

Save our stories
Do you like listening to people talking about their memories of living, working and growing up in our wonderful area? We have over fifty recordings to listen to and need more ears to help us, as we just don’t have enough time! You could do this at home in your own time and give as much or little time as you would like.

Jan, Woodland Volunteer
“I like the sense of giving something back and learning new skills. I have a long involvement in the countryside and rural life but wasn’t taught to use saws etc when I was younger. I love seeing new woodlands, particularly the private ones – I’ve lived in the area for 30 years  and never been to Putties Wood before.”

Join our Wildlife Group
Learn how to identify and survey for wildlife in our area at regular monthly activities run by Durham Wildlife Trust. Some of these activities are family friendly, all are free. Explore your local area and share your wildlife sightings to help us build up a record of what can be found in Land of Oak & Iron.
