Aston Lodge Residents Association

Volunteering

Since the association was formed, we have been organising occasional Volunteer Work Parties, which have been focused on the footpaths across Aston Lodge, many of which had become overgrown and at times impassable.

Currently, it is unlikely that the Highways Authority or Borough Council will adopt the pathways around and through our estate. And, frankly, we can do a decent job of maintaining them ourselves, whilst respecting the natural environment.

Our Volunteer Work Parties are fun and sociable, as well as a great way to get some fresh air and exercise. You can do as much, or as little, as you like... or, you can just bring us a tray of tea!

You can register with the volunteer group leaders, so that you get regular updates on volunteer sessions. Once registered, you can join any session that's convenient for you.

Most sessions are 45 minutes to an hour, held at least once a week from Spring to Autumn. If you're interested in joining our group of Volunteers, please email: secretary@alra.org.uk.
