Norfolk Conservation Corps help out at Sculthorpe

On Sunday 7th January, Volunteer Co-ordinator, Neil Chadwick, supervised over a dozen volunteers from the Norfolk Conservation Corps who came to lend a hand clearing saplings on the fen in front of the Whitley Hide.  This redoubtable group of volunteers has been in existence for forty years and go out nearly every Sunday to carry out conservation tasks at a wide range of nature reserves and wildlife sites throughout the county.

Sunday was a perfect work day – unbroken sunshine but cool and not too windy – and fortunately the flooding of the previous week had receded. The team were here from 10 until closing time at 4 and removed a huge pile of saplings.

We hope they will be back on a regular basis to get involved in more tasks on the reserve.  If you have time on a Sunday and enjoy conservation work – or if you fancy a change of scene from Sculthorpe Moor from time to time – why not look them up on their website at or on Facebook at
