Forthcoming Work / Volunteer days

Over the past two years, volunteers have given hundreds of hour of time undertaking tasks and this work has been invaluable in moving the project forwards. The two key themes of our volunteer work are around protecting the magnificent structure of the viaduct and enriching wildlife habitats both on and underneath the viaduct.  Workdays start at 10:00 am and usually go on until 3:30 – 4:00 pm but if you are only available for a part of that time, you would be more than welcome. All tools are provided and training in how to use the tools will be given. If you want further details about any workday, please contact kieran.lee@sustrans.org.uk
