People in the borough are being asked to ‘muck in’ for a community volunteer day taking place in Arnold next month.
Gedling Borough Council and the Arnold branch of McDonalds have teamed up to stage what they hope could be the biggest environmental volunteer day the Borough has ever seen.
On Wednesday, November 8, between 10am and 3pm, volunteers from across the borough can join the teams from Gedling Borough Council and McDonalds in clearing fallen leaf waste from Arnot Hill Park ready for the annual remembrance service the following weekend.
People are being asked to meet in Arnold McDonalds at 9:30am for tea and coffee before heading into the park at 10am.
Volunteers are encouraged to give the time that they can, even if it is just one hour.
Tools for the event are kindly being provided by the Frank Key Group.
Adam Hales is an urban park ranger for Gedling Borough Council who is helping to organise the event.
He said: “It looks set to be a great community focused day, so why not come along and meet some of the people who live and work in your local area.”
Volunteers should wear suitable clothes for working outdoors, suitable footwear and gloves.
