The Conservation Volunteers’ special 60th anniversary Big Green Weekend

TCV’s Big Green Weekend is an opportunity to showcase the scale and breadth of the activities TCV volunteers deliver week in, week out across the UK, and a chance to say a huge thanks to all the amazing volunteers.

The event will include formal presentations by partners and volunteers celebrating TCV’s work and plans for the future, to an invite-only audience.

From 1:15 – 3pm, the event is open to the public, with free outdoor workshops and activities demonstrating a range of skills, and wildlife and nature activities for all the family.

Like-minded people

TCV Scotland offers a wide range of environmental activity for all in helping to protect and enhance our local greenspace and biodiversity whilst also learning new skills, getting fitter, engaging with your environment and meeting other like-minded people.

Darren York, TCV chief executive, said “TCV’s Big Green Weekend is a celebration of the valuable green spaces – which are under increasing pressure in these challenging economic times – and the individuals who freely give their time for their protection.

“It is often thanks to the efforts of the volunteers across the UK that they are cared for and improved for the benefit of people and nature.”
