Volunteering Opportunities in Harpenden


People in Harpenden care passionately about their Town and its green spaces and, behind the scenes, there is an army of volunteers helping the local community. There are always many volunteering opportunities, providing the perfect excuse to spend time out doors while contributing to your local environment. 

Harpenden Town Council organises Volunteer Project Days which involve anything from clearing shrubs and restoring heather on the Common, to planting trees at Rothamsted Park. Additionally we work regularly with the Batford Springs Local Nature Reserve volunteers who carry out incredible work to maintain and improve this amazing local resource.  

We also work with local experts and experienced volunteers who support us in carrying out ecological surveys including bat, bee and butterfly surveys.

Harpenden Snow Angels are a group of local residents who volunteer to clear snow and ice from the footways and pathways in their local area. As a Snow Angel, you can contribute to the safety of your community, especially in smaller, residential roads and pedestrian routes.

We'll arrange for the collection / delivery of your Snow Angel Kit, which includes: a bag of grit, a branded hi-visibility vest, protective gloves and a snow shovel.

Our Litter Angels initiative enables members of the community to assist in keeping Harpenden Town Council land free from litter and debris. Volunteers can sign up to help pick up litter in an area, and during times, convenient to themselves.  We supply a Litter Angels pack which includes a litter picker, high vis waist coat, protective gloves and a roll of black sacks.

If you're interested in volunteering in our green spaces please contact Alex or Tim: alexander.melson@harpenden.gov.uk or tim.austin-lomas@harpenden.gov.uk or call us on 01582 463667. For further information about Snow and Litter Angels, please contact Miriam Allum on 01582 463540 or by email: miriam.allum@harpenden.gov.uk
