We welcome business volunteers on active and enjoyable days out in Ouseburn, helping our Clean Green Ouseburn team keep the Valley looking good. As more visitors and families coming to enjoy the area and its green spaces we want to make it a safe and welcoming place for everyone. We value the work of all our volunteers.

Get in touch to arrange a date and the sort of activity you would like to undertake 

  • Litter picking and tidying key areas of Ouseburn Valley
  • Planting
  • Maintaining footpaths and steps
  • Tree pruning
  • Woodland clearance

All you need to bring are

  • Enthusiasm and confidence to work physically outdoors
  • sturdy footwear and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty

At the start of each session you will be given relevant health and safety guidance and we ask you to follow instructions accordingly. You should act within your own limitations and not carry out any tasks which you feel uncomfortable with.  If you are in any doubt about anything whatsoever during the day please do not hesitate to seek clarification.

We are trying to reduce the number of cars in Ouseburn so if you can come on public transport, by bike or on foot that would be excellent, however there is parking nearby as well.

There are a wide range of lovely places to eat and drink in the Valley as well as picnic benches.
