About us

WWV currently has 45 members, most of whom are retired. We regret that we cannot take on new members at this time: our sessions are well-attended, and health and safety issues mean that we have to limit the number of volunteers in work groups.

We offer two hours on Monday mornings, splitting our efforts equally between (a) weeding and cutting back overgrowth on the many green pathways around the town and (b) our responsibilities as custodians of Deer Park Wood. Our overriding aim has always been to make Witney a more pleasant place to live.

The setting

We maintain around 20 of the foot/cycle paths throughout the town, some of these along the Windrush, bordered by water meadows and small areas of woodland which have remained undeveloped for many years.

Origins

The group was set up in June 2006 in consultation with West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC), and we value our continuing close relationship with them. Witney Town Council and Oxfordshire County Council also care for some locations, and have also given the volunteers their support.

The Group is independently constituted (a copy of the Constitution is available here).
