Thetford Conservation Group

With suitable social distancing, and no need to share equipment, Thetford Conservation Group activities are still running safely and we are happy to welcome new members. If you would like to get involved, please contact Mark Webster via 07553 388 551 or markwebster@thetfordtowncouncil.gov.uk  Or you can see the programme of events below…

Thetford Conservation Group was launched in 2019, giving a wide range of people the chance to get close to nature and help look after some of the town’s fantastic green open spaces – which include a Site of Special Scientific Interest, scheduled ancient monuments, two woodlands and large stretches of beautiful riverside.

We run free activities, usually on both Wednesdays and Thursdays each week, with a mixture of practical conservation tasks and opportunities to learn more about local natural history. You don’t have to be physically fit or strong, or have any previous knowledge or experience in order to take part – anyone can join in and make a positive difference for local wildlife. 

The group has already tackled a wide variety of tasks, from helping conserve rare wildflower meadows to creating brand new woodland walks:

  • Over 40 people join us each year
  • 14 different sites around the town have been improved
  • Approximately 20 acres (8 hectares) of Barnham Cross Common SSSI have been cleared of invasive scrub.
  • over 7,000 trees and shrubs have been planted at suitable locations around the town, as well as thousands of spring-flowering bulbs.
