Meeting for would-be coast volunteers to take place in Colchester

ANYONE looking to help protect Essex’s coast can find out more about volunteering in Colchester next Monday.

Charity TCV is searching for Coastal Wardens, who organise beach cleans, carry out surveys and help protect the wildlife and habitat of the county’s 350 miles of coastland.

Volunteers are trained in identifying wildlife, map reading, first aid and organising projects.

An information event is taking place in the Quaker Meeting Room in Church Street from 7pm on Monday. To book a place, email e.webb@tcv.org.uk or call 01206 764470.

Would have been an idea to do this more locally. Not many people who would volunteer ie pensioners and older teenagers would be willing to travel to Colchester at that time of night. .......Just a thought.

The timing will suit people who work or study. But they should have waited for the clocks to change and the light evenings.
Maybe somewhere like MICA or the Nottage Institute would have been a better venue.

Guys, don't blame TCV for the crap article. As always their extensive journalism only runs to a couple of sentences and short words. If this is interest to you get in touch with TCV/Emma and let them know. I've been in touch already and this looks like a very worthwhile project. You do not have to attend this event in order to get involved.
