Growing the Legacy Group Success

Over 20 people attended the Legacy Group meeting in February, learning more about how to get involved in supporting our work, whilst creating a lasting legacy so that future generations can enjoy all that the Land of Oak & Iron has to offer over the years to come. Now we are calling for even more people with time on their hands or an interest in volunteering to come along to a meeting and get involved with local projects.

Karen Daglish, our Partnership Manager said: “The Legacy Group is about helping people to discover all that the Land of Oak & Iron has to offer while learning how to protect it. With over 500 years of history, heritage and habitats in this region, it’s a really important task to ensure its sustainability for future generations, but we can’t do it alone and need ongoing help and support from local people.

“Following our most recent meeting, we’ve already recruited ten new volunteers, and we’re ever so pleased with the result, but we still need more to ensure the future sustainability of the area.  That’s why we’re asking for people to come along to our next meeting on Friday 16th March at 10am in Chopwell Community Centre to find out more and consider joining our growing Legacy Group.”
