The aim of the Shipton Volunteers is to maintain, enhance and improve aspects of the village.
There are two morning sessions held each month and participation is welcomed for just part or all of each session. Tasks performed are varied and accommodate all levels of energy and skill. It’s a great way of meeting new people.
The scheduled dates/tasks are:
- August – Sat 26th

July – On Friday 13th three benches on the village green were given some TLC. On the Saturday we helped with the 2oth Anniversary celebrations of the New Beaconsfield Hall, 15 volunteers helped set up, some stayed to help for the duration of the afternoon and 15 helped dismantle.
May – On Saturday 26th we worked in the allotments and we did a lot of weeding!! – around the raised beds (giving the strawberries some room); the side of the container; round the fruit trees in the orchard; in front of the compost bins.
April – On Friday 20th we worked in the Church Yard. We removed a couple of broken branches from one of the yew trees, cut back the ivy from the lime trees and weeded the pathways. On Saturday we helped with the working party in the Wild Garden
March – The annual litter pick and you can see what we collected. Unfortunately we had to cancel Saturday’s session due to the weather.
