Suffolk National Trust Volunteers

We are a volunteer group affiliated to the National Trust, who help rangers maintain their properties. Our patch extends from Dunwich in the north, to Danbury Common in the south, and to Ickworth (Bury St Edmunds) in the west.

What we do

We meet for a task on Sundays once a fortnight and transport can usually be arranged. Tasks are mostly outdoors on local National Trust countryside sites – mainly woodland, farmland and gardens. We rotate tasks between several estates in the area. Tools are provided and instruction on how to use them safely is given. In addition rangers can provide valuable insight into careers in conservation.
  • You do not have to be a National Trust member to volunteer with us
  • There is no commitment to come out on every task
  • You don't need to have any particular skills or knowledge, and our work parties usually include a range of tasks
The tasks we support are generally outdoors and include tree planting, coppicing, scrub clearance and fence building. We also have special tasks such as boardwalk construction on Orford Ness or pulling Reed Mace at Flatford Mill. Many tasks involve a bonfire. Volunteering with us is rewarding, and the group is very friendly and sociable. There is a tea break and lunch break during the day, with hot drinks, biscuits and cake. You do not have to be fit, just enthusiastic!
