Get involved

We are currently looking for support in a number of areas.

The Management Committee needs half a dozen volunteers to get involved with planning, fundraising, administration - including charity management - finance and book-keeping. Energy, enthusiasm and patience are the main requirements!

The Grounds Committee is looking for volunteers to help with regular clearance, maintenance and planting sessions under the supervision of BCP’s regular maintenance staff. Initially we are looking at four working parties a year and you’d be welcome to all, or one, or just for a few hours. No experience necessary. Get fit, make friends and help beautify the Chine! What could be better?

Please contact the Friends by completing the form below - telling us what would you like to do, any skills you have that might be relevant, and the amount of time you might be able to commit.
