Sutton Park

Team building volunteer away day (or half day)- free of charge

Your team can contribute to the management of the National Nature Reserve in Sutton Park by volunteering to help clear invasive birch from the open heath land. There are various areas to suit different groups so that there is an achievable target. Tools are available at the park, but to be able to continue offering this excellent team building activity they would be grateful for any donations of tools which could be purchased through voyager.

Beginners Orienteering – free of charge

Groups would be split in to teams using a star course which would not take you far away from your start point. This activity is enhanced by completing a specified action on your return journey!
