Sheffield Conservation Volunteers

Sheffield Conservation Volunteers were established by a group of friends in 1978 to clear a stream in Ecclesfield and have worked together ever since to work on conserving green public spaces in Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

Managed by a committee of volunteers, SCV now work about two Sundays  a month in and around Sheffield. Over the years we have done many projects  including dry stone walling, hedge laying, coppicing and even bridge building!

Everybody is welcome to join us on a Sunday, (though please check the Activity Page to  check which Sunday we are working).

Over the years  we have worked for a  variety of employers including the City Council Ranger Service, secondary & primary schools and various conservation  groups in and around the city. We receive a small fee for our services dependent on the number of volunteers in our party.  We have also been involved in Long Term Projects such as at Clough Field Woods.

Since the Pandemic we no longer have access to  a Minibus,  so we rely on either public transport  or our Members with cars. If anybody could help us with transport that would be very welcome!
