Surrey Hills National Landscape and Surrey Hills Society are working together to facilitate a Surrey Hills Conservation Volunteer scheme. Surrey Hills Conservation Volunteers undertake conservation and access work across the Surrey Hills National Landscape, managing access and habitats for people and nature.

This free community event, open to all, will be focused on maintaining the Memorial Wood in the beautiful village of Chiddingfold.  Please reserve your spot and et us know you are coming by clicking here.
