Hundreds of people are expected to make a New Year’s resolution to volunteer for wildlife projects, archaeological surveys and outdoor activities at the New Forest National Park.

The annual New Forest Volunteer Fair will take place on March 15 at Lyndhurst Community Centre and offers a chance for people to find out more about the varied projects going on.

Last year 300 people came to meet 30 different organisations such as the Forestry Commission, Hampshire Ornithological Society, The National Trust and RPSB.

Jim Mitchell, right, interpretation officer at the New Forest National Park Authority said: “This is the fourth year we’ve held a Volunteer Fair in the New Forest and they’ve steadily grown in popularity with hundreds of people keen to make a difference through new and enjoyable experiences.

It’s also become increasingly popular with volunteer organisations, so it’s best to book a space quickly.”

Spaces are limited for organisations who want to attend, if you would like to get involved email jim.mitchell@newforestnpa.gov.uk or call 01590 646681.
