"The resulting Community Led Plan forms a blueprint for use by Town/Parish Councils and other local bodies, as well as providing evidence for funding bids to enable the actions identified to be completed."
HWRCC's Village Veg project encouraged and helped people of all ages and abilities to grow their own vegetables, saving them money, improving their health, creating community outdoor activities, and much more...
HWRCC launched the Village Veg project in March 2014 in the East Yorkshire villages of Melbourne, Wilberfoss, Barmby Moor and Sutton upon Derwent, with invitations to participate extending to hamlets surrounding these villages. Through the project residents learned how to grow a variety of vegetables, many of whom are growing for the very first time.
Ask Our Experienced Growers
We understood that many of our growers needed help in growing quality produce, so our 'Experienced Growers' received on-hand support which provided advice throughout the season!

About the opportunity
As a volunteer surveyor, you will be positioned at locations around Flamborough Head and Filey Brigg throughout the busy tourist season. You will be recording any recreational activities you see, particularly noting whether the seabirds respond to human presence. You will be assigned 4 locations (which will need to be surveyed for one hour each) and we ask that volunteers commit at least one day a week to this project.
