Are you going to Norwich Science Festival?
We will have a stall at the Festival on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October – come along and see us there!
Work has begun on the Volunteer Hub section of the website. This page advertises volunteering opportunities in the Brecks, as well as acting as a repository for resources useful to both volunteer managers and the volunteers themselves.
As we ease out of the Covid-19 lockdown, volunteering activity across the scheme is really beginning to take shape. You can read more about volunteering in the individual projects by visiting the project webpages but here are just a few examples of what’s been going on so far:
As the Scheme progresses further, and life continues to return to normal in the wake of the pandemic, we hope that many more volunteers will be recruited, trained, and deployed to help out with everything from practical conservation tasks to archaeological research.
We were delighted to receive an invitation to join the local community at Foulden Village Hall’s belated VE/VJ Day Celebration Garden Party on 14th August. Ellie went out armed with the Breckland Society’s Military History and Cold War publications as well as leaflets and information booklets demonstrating what the Brecks have to offer and how to get involved with BFER projects. It was great to be part of a community celebration and to spread awareness about the Brecks’ Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership.
To develop three geographically diverse Delivery Hubs, with a variety of satellite locations that act as the primary sites to engage with the community on the following BFER themes: History, Geography, Wildlife, Heritage skills and crafts, The Arts
To Provide support to the delivery projects across he Scheme by developing an engagement and volunteer hub that support the project
This project will enable engagement across the BFER scheme. It will link all project activity by developing a Volunteer Management Programme and Delivery Hubs with associated activity programmes that will enable participants to engage in all of the main BFER themes.
There will be three new Learning and Engagement hubs developed at key heritage locations to assist in the delivery of the project and provide opportunities for new and hard to engage audiences to take part in supported family activities focusing on BFER heritage.
It will also deliver the Scheme’s Volunteer Management Programme, that will manage all aspects of the BFER volunteer experience including recruitment, training, Health and Safety, and transportation. It will also include a promotion and communications programme with annual scheme-wide celebration events to foster a positive experience and create a legacy of well trained, experienced, and motivated volunteer pool for the Scheme area.
