Become an official cattle checker

Can you help us care for the cattle grazing at Denham Country Park or Stanwell Moor?

Make your exercise walk count by learning more about Conservation Grazing and how you can be an extra pair of eyes for us at these sites.

As part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project to improve the Colne Valley Regional Park we have introduced  conservation grazing to 3 sites across the Valley. We would like local people who walk these sites to help us care for our lovely cattle. In order to help you do this, we are offering free training to teach you all you need to know about conservation grazing and how to spot a happy or unhappy cow.  So join our Habitats Project Manager Adam Bolton and our farmer John Whitby to learn all about these animals and their role in nature conservation and join our volunteer team of checkers.

Free Training on Zoom 12th of May

To book your place: Email: adam.bolton@groundwork.org.uk. By Phone: 07734605304. On Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ca

The training will be held on Zoom. Joining instructions will be sent to the email used on Eventbrite after receiving your registration. They will also be sent automatically via Eventbrite 48 hours before the training begins. We look forward to seeing you there!

The return of our meadow flowers

The cattle’s grazing will restore the meadow, forcing back the coarse and dominant grasses and allowing more invertebrates and lower growing plant species to thrive.
