Help from the Kings Arms

Submitted by on May 12, 2017 – 12:30 pmNo Comment

We recently teamed up with the Pathways to Employment Team from Kings Arms Project in Bedford, to run two days of practical conservation tasks at the Grange Estate (near Willington). Volunteers from the Project got stuck in, cutting back an overgrown path, doing essential maintenance on one of the bridges over the River Great Ouse and opening up some lovely views to the river.

Jo Roberts, Community Engagement Officer at the Forest of Marston Vale said:

“As a charity, it’s so important for us to involve as many people as possible from the local community in our work. We’ve planted over a million trees in the Forest, and as they grow, we will need help to maintain them, and to maintain the sites we manage. The clients from Kings Arms Project worked their socks off, and it’s great to see so many happy faces, getting stuck into some practical conservation”

The Pathways to Employment Team deliver courses that empower people on their journey out of homelessness and are part of King’s Arms Project, a local charity supporting people who are experiencing homelessness in Bedford, additionally King’s Arms Project work in Bedfordshire to support refugees from Syria.
