Scarborough Conservation Volunteers are a local voluntary group who meet every week to undertake environmental conservation tasks in the Scarborough region.
Founded in 1988 and now affiliated to the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers, our aim remains the same, that is the welfare of the local environment for the benefit of local people.
A group of like minded people, from all walks of life that enjoy getting out into the country side in all weathers to take part in environmental tasks, get dirty, have a laugh and make friends
Typical tasks for the volunteers
Round house building
Church yard Management
We have two days a week when we meet, Wednesday is our main activity day and involves various projects in and around Scarborough but we have also been involved with tasks in the Ravenscar/Whitby area. We do set aside some Wednesdays for our main project which is Raincliffe Meadow. For those without transport we meet at Scarborough Railway Station, we leave prompt at 9.45 am.
Saturday Events are ALWAYS held at the meadow. For those without transport please telephone on Friday to arrange pickup at the railway station.
Please dress appropriately, work boots, warm weather proof clothing etc. Don't forget hot/cold drinks and something to eat.
People wishing to join our group please read the F.A.Q page
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme will see
three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Very pleased to report that Scarborough Conservation Volunteers were awarded a grant of £10,000. Thanks to Tesco and to everyone who supported us and voted for us.
