Get involved in the Corby Woodland Project


Volunteering is an extremely rewarding experience with many social benefits and for dedicated volunteers we are able to provide free training opportunities through the Corby Woodland Project.

We are also seeking volunteers to help run Foxy's Woodland Shop in East Carlton Countryside Park where you can gain retail experience in a beautiful setting.

Join a Friends group

Being part of any of our Corby Friends groups means you will be involved with work on the woodlands, including coppicing, planting, litter picking, helping with events and more.

There are Friends groups for:

  • Thoroughsale and Hazel Wood
  • Coronation Park
  • East Carlton Countryside Park
  • King's Wood Local Nature Reserve
  • West Glebe Park
  • Weldon Woodland Park

These groups are currently engaged in clearing the accumulated litter and fly tipping from their respected sites, meeting regularly, to improve their general appearance and reduce negative perceptions.

The Friends of Thoroughsale and Hazelwood are committed to ensuring the woodland is a safe, welcoming and attractive site and have been involved in the Thoroughsale and Hazelwood Management Plan process since the beginning.

In turn the Woodland Management Plan seeks to provide full support to the Friends of Group, ensuring that there are no barriers to new people joining this group.

To join or for more information, please email [email protected].
