Work Parties

Hartlebury Common Local Group organises work parties of volunteers on the common. Start time is 10.00am. Check our news page for regular updates.

Our aim is to assist Worcestershire County Council in implementing its plan for Hartlebury Common. The objective is to maintain the SSSI in a favourable condition by reducing the amount of overgrown scrub and removing self seeded trees.

Hand-tools and gloves are provided. Please wear old clothes, waterproofs and stout shoes or boots.

If you would like to volunteer and need more information (date, meeting place etc), please email:


Work parties normally take place on the 1st Sunday and the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. If you would like to attend, please email Mike Lomax for details of time, place etc.
