Countryside Management

We help to manage countryside sites ranging from small informal pocket parks such as Drovers Spinney in Shefford to larger sites with a range of facilities.

Clients include Sandy Town Council (which owns The Riddy Local Nature Reserve and Sandy Pinnacle and Recreation Ground), and Castle Close Wildlife & Heritage Site in Sharnbrook.

Many of our tasks are carried out by the Ivel Valley Conservation Volunteers – currently looking for new volunteers.

We are able to offer a comprehensive range of services including:

  • Community consultation and consensus building activities
  • Production and practical implementation of site Management Plans
  • Submission of funding applications
  • Funding advice and support with submitting grant applications
  • Organising and leading community volunteering events
  • Wildlife and heritage interpretation
  • Contract management
  • Green-space audits and enhancement proposals
  • Site access improvements
  • Practical assistance in organising and leading community volunteering events
  • Support in establishment of ‘Friends’ groups and volunteer wardens
  • Production and practical implementation of site Management Plans (including wildlife and heritage interpretation and habitat creation and conservation)


We offer multiple ways of volunteering in the countryside from conservation work to volunteering at our community vineyard.
