The Friends of Dalby Forest (Registered Charity Number 1125882) are a small group of volunteers who meet regularly in Dalby Forest (North Yorkshire, UK) to enhance the facilities and settings for all visitors, on a wide range of Forestry-led projects.
Dalby Forest is situated within the beautiful North York Moors National Park, managed by the Forestry England (who are responsible for protecting and promoting the sustainable management of Dalby).
Volunteer Directors: Judith Winters (Chair), Robert Howlett (Treasurer), Margy Scorer, Simon Butcher (Forestry England), Martin Baxter and Ruth Phillips
You are welcome to join us on one of our regular volunteer days, bring the family and get some fresh Dalby air. The group is open to everyone. We meet in the forest every 2nd Sunday of the month, from 9am to around midday.
Children are also welcome on tasks but must be accompanied by an adult.
Tasks involve things like clearing paths, planting, developing features and facilities for visitors, maintaining the play park willow structures, and tending the forest garden. We are always keen to welcome new volunteers to ensure that we better represent all the varied interests of the thousands who visit the forest every year.
And nothing better than being in the fresh air doing physical work with a supportive community to help your mental health.

Brilliant to hear of this initiative as local Ryedale person who is working to raise awareness on the benefits of labyrinths in our community.
Hoping to hear from you on opportunities to engage next month after returning from an Andulucia journey involving laying labyrinths in public places.
