Green and Healthy Rugby: Newbold

Green and Health Rugby offers local people the chance to get out and get active on our reserves, whilst learning new skills and meeting new people.

Do you live in Newbold and fancy living a wilder life? Ever wanted to learn a new skill? Meet local like minded people? Help wildlife? Or maybe you just appreciate a good cup of tea in the great outdoors! If so, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust are setting up a new work party at Newbold Quarry.

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has been supported by Warwickshire Public health to deliver 10 taster sessions at Newbold Quarry reserve in Rugby. Sessions will be held fortnightly on Tuesdays 10am - 1pm, from September to February. Over the winter months we will work on a number of practical tasks to care for the reserve.

Tasks can be adapted for all abilities and no previous experience is required as all training will be provided. For more information contact faye.irvine@wkwt.org.uk or just drop in on the day. 

The dates are:

5th & 19th September
3rd, 17th & 31st October
14th & 28th November
12th December
9th & 23rd January
6th & 20th February
