Deepdale Conservation Weekend

Friday 6 to Sunday 8 November 2020
Friday evening to Sunday afternoon

 

As the North Norfolk Coast begins to move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open, more planned events are taking place. These are just listings, so please follow links and check with organisers of events before assuming events are running.

 

If you enjoy the great outdoors and like the thought of working in the countryside of Deepdale Farm on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast as part of a conservation team for a couple of days, please read on ...

We are looking for a team of up to 20 volunteers, who’d like to learn some practical conservation skills on an eco-friendly working farm.

Deepdale Conservation Weekend offers you the chance to stay for FREE in the Deepdale Backpackers Hostel or on the campsite, half board provided (bed, breakfast & evening meal), in exchange for two days work (9am to 3pm).

Friday evening we’ll have pizzas from Wood Fired Food Co and on Saturday night we’ll have a BBQ!

Unfortunately, we can’t accept children on the weekend as insurance won’t cover them.

The team is a maximum of 20 people working with Nathan & Stephen, the Deepdale Farm team, and some of the tourism crew.

The itinerary for the weekend goes something like this:

Arrive Friday evening

Saturday
8am - Breakfast
9am - Head out to our work area
Picnic lunch (you need to provide this or buy from Deepdale Stores or Deepdale Cafe)
3pm - Back to the hostel for a cuppa and to rest the weary limbs
7pm - BBQ
8pm - Very large bonfire

Sunday
8am - Breakfast
9am - Head out to our work area
Picnic lunch (you need to provide this)
3pm - Back to the hostel for a cuppa and goodbyes

If you have been with us for both days and would like to stay Sunday night as well, then you’d be more than welcome.

Work will include activities like thinning woodland, planting hedges, coppicing, laying hedges, dead hedging, and other tasks to enhance the beauty and wildlife value of the woodland and campsite.

"I just wanted to say how much Dave, Kevin and myself enjoyed the conservation weekend and the friends we made. Please pass on our thanks to the team for their hospitality and the very enjoyable barbecue. I know it’s the distant future but if you’re taking bookings for a future conservation weekend please include all three of us on the list."
Mik, Derbyshire

Remember that you just need to bring food for lunch on the Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise you just need a towel and some clothes suitable for working in the woods, and some sturdy footwear, wellies or walking boots would be ideal. Of course it never rains here, but bringing a waterproof might not be a bad idea!

Due to insurance and health & safety issues, anyone wanting to take part in the Conservation Weekend must be over the age of 21.

Accommodation is in dorm rooms, sharing with other conservation weekend volunteers, usually single sex. If you’d like to upgrade to a private room then that may be possible, subject to availability, let us know and we can let you know the cost.

To book onto the weekend, please contact Deepdale Backpackers & Camping by phone on Tel: 01485 210256

More Information

Price: FREE for those getting their hands dirty and attending the whole weekend (Friday evening to Sunday evening). There is an upgrade option to sleep in a private room rather than single sex dorm
