The Friends of Kinneil works to promote and develop Kinneil Estate and Nature Reserve in the town.

Chairwoman Maria Ford said: “We’re keen to hear from anyone interested in helping out – from running tours or planting trees and flowers to serving cups of tea. You can volunteer for a one-off event, or on a longer term basis.

“Since we set up The Friends of Kinneil in 2006, we’ve grown our activities and always welcome willing hands. If you’d like to help us,get in touch.”

The campaign was launched to coincide with national volunteers’ week which aims to recognise the huge contribution made by activists around the country.

Said Maria: “In recent weeks our volunteers have helped at a fun run, taken part in a festival at Kinneil Museum and will leading tours around Kinneil House at the end of June.”

The charity is holding a drop-in event at Kinneil Museum tomorrow (Saturday) from 1pm to 3.30pm. Alternatively, you can drop an email to [email protected] or call Maria on 01506 510629.
