YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE
IN  THE COMMUNITY

BY VOLUNTEERING TODAY

Barleythorpe Parish Council are working together as part of the Barleythorpe Climate Change Action and The Queen’s Green Canopy and the NHS Woods to plant bulbs and trees around the Parish of Barleythorpe. 

Barleythorpe Climate Change Action Call for Volunteers 

Are you passionate about the environment and planting trees as part of Rutland, Barleythorpe Climate Change Action in your community? Do you want to make a difference in your local environment and meet new people? 

Are you concerned about climate change and its impact on our planet? Do you want to take action and help reduce your carbon footprint? Do you love nature and trees? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be interested in joining Barleythorpe Climate Change Action! 

We are a group of volunteers who work together to combat climate change and its effects in Barleythorpe and Rutland. We are part of the Woodland Trust’s Big Climate Fightback campaign, which aims to plant 50 million trees across the UK by 2025. 

Our goal is to plant four new woods in and around Barleythorpe, which will provide habitat for wildlife, improve air quality, store carbon, and enhance the landscape. Our aim is to enhance green spaces, promote biodiversity, and foster community pride. 

We are looking for volunteers who can help us with planting trees. No experience or skills are required, just enthusiasm and willingness to learn. We provide all the tools and materials you need, as well as guidance and support from our friendly and experienced team. 

We will be starting planting on the 24/25 and 26th of November at 10 am, in the Linear Park NHS woods. Joining Barleythorpe Climate Change Action! is a great way to make new friends, have fun, and contribute to a worthy cause. 

If you are interested in joining us or want to find out more, please contact us at daveworkingforyou@gmail.com or call Dave 07412943448. Please let me know the day and time you are available. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thanks for visiting our website!
Your Barleythorpe Parish Council is independent of other levels of local government, i.e. Rutland County Council, however we maintain a close working relationship.  

We meet at least six times a year, including one annual parish meeting and are responsible for very few matters.  Your Parish Councillors have an active interest and concern for our local community.  

We represent local people and work in partnership with them and others when necessary.  We help facilitate the provision of local services and facilities and take decisions that form the policy of the Parish Council. Parish Councillors have to abide by the local government code of conduct.   Parish Councillors must also declare a personal or prejudicial interest in any matter under discussion at a Parish Council meeting as required.

Rutland Climate Action Network (RCN) was formed in response to Rutland County County declaring a climate crisis in 2021, recognising that communities face challenges and barriers to tackling a huge global problem through local action. The aim of the network is to provide solutions and enable local tangible action by linking like-minded people, providing resources such as our website and social media for information sharing, and providing a forum for exchanging ideas and disseminating information.
