Volunteers can get involved and help rangers clear invasive scrub from Northam Burrows at an event next week.

Volunteers are needed to carry out maintenance work on Northam Burrows.

A rake and burn event is being held on November 29, 10am-4pm, for willing helpers to get involved.

This will include raking up cuttings of invasive scrub and burning them to help protect the rare plants and wildlife in the park.

Councillor James Morrish, lead member for the economy and Northam Burrows, said: “Volunteering makes an enormous contribution to the management of Northam Burrows.

“We are very grateful for all the support we receive as it helps to keep the park in good condition for plants and wildlife.

“These events are a great opportunity to make a real difference, but are also a chance to meet like minded people, keep fit and learn new skills.”

Volunteers should meet at the Burrows Centre and bring suitable clothing and footwear, and a packed lunch is also advisable.

There will be plenty of tea and coffee, and tools will be provided by the North Devon Biosphere Service.
