Corby Borough Council's Lead Member for Community, Councillor John McGhee, said:

"Corby's Friends of Groups are a real asset to the borough for all of the work the dedicated volunteers put in to make sure our green spaces are maintained.  Being a member of any of our groups is a great way to spend time outdoors, meet new people, keep active and make sure residents are always in a safe and friendly environment when walking through the woodlands and parks so please don't hesitate to pick up a leaflet and get in touch with some of our volunteers."

Volunteering is an extremely rewarding experience with many social benefits and for dedicated volunteers we are able to provide free training opportunities through the Corby Woodland Project.

We are also seeking volunteers to help run Foxy's Woodland Shop in East Carlton Park where you can gain retail experience in a beautiful setting.  If you would like to discuss any of our volunteering opportunities further, please complete our Volunteer Form and one of our team will be in touch to discuss further.  We only ask for as much time as you are able to give.
