Shipton Volunteers

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.


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:

  • June – Fri 1st – Weeding
  • June – Sat 2nd- Weeding
  • July – Fri 13th
  • July – Sat 14th – Help with the 20th Anniversary of New Beaconsfield Hall
