Workshop for Volunteers Working on Open Green Spaces – 24 March 2012

Monmouthshire’s Environment Partnership is organising a workshop and meeting for voluntary groups involved in managing local green spaces in Monmouthshire.  The workshop will bring together groups of volunteers and supporting agencies to share experience of their activities, learn from one another and identify any ways in which the Environment Partnership Board and its partners can help with the valued work that you undertake.  The event is being arranged as part of the Partnership’s commitment to the Creating An Active Monmouthshire Plan.  The Environment Partnership’s focus in this Plan is on the health and wellbeing benefits of environmental activity and creating and maintaining local outdoor spaces that people can enjoy and benefit from.  As a voluntary group you are playing an important role in both of these aspects.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 24th March from 10am to 1pm, and lunch will be provided at the end.  The venue is Usk Centenary Hall, (Scout Hall), Maryport Street South, Usk.  There should be ample (free) car parking available in front of the Hall, but in the interests of environmental sustainability we encourage car sharing and use of public transport where possible.

We will have a mix of interesting speakers ranging from local case studies from groups working on urban and rural green spaces in Monmouthshire, as well as from Countryside Council for Wales who aim to make the Welsh environment, wildlife and landscape a valued part of everyone’s lives.

Please complete and return this form so that I know how many people will be attending by Monday 19th March.
