Volunteering in Rockingham Forest

We are looking for volunteers to help out at Fineshade.

If you are good at talking to people and giving out information, you might like to come on board as a Visitor Welcome volunteer. We are actively recruiting for this position now. You would be on hand at busy times to help people find their way about the site, and to answer their questions. No physical activity or previous experience required!

If, on the other hand, you'd like to become actively involved in looking after the woods, then we'd like to hear from you as well. We do things like cutting back vegetation, putting up fences, gardening and orchard management.

We would also like to see more events at Fineshade, and need volunteers who are willing to run guided walks, talks and other activities. Some prior experience of this is necessary.

We have volunteers of all ages and from all backgrounds. If you register an interest with us you will then be contacted and asked to fill in an application form.

To find out more contact us at

We look forward to hearing from you!
