Volunteers Wanted

How about helping out at our Social club for your elderly neighbours, and having fun as part of a great team too!

Brendoncare Club Hampshire are looking for volunteers to help out at their social club for elderly people which runs every other Tuesday from 2 to 4 pm at The Victoria Hall in Hartley Wintney.

We are a team of volunteers who run a wide range of fun activities, invite guest speakers, go on outings, and generally enjoy a good chat with refreshments with our group of older residents of Hartley Wintney.

We are looking for people who can help with things such as organising activities for the club (for which we at Brendoncare supply a large file of suggestions and help), arranging transport and pickups for members, acting as club treasurer using whatever simple accounting system works best for you, receiving and distributing post from us, or even acting as Club Leader (not anything like as daunting as it sounds!).

Brendoncare Club Hampshire supply lots of help and training sessions, plus documentation for club use. You will be part of a team with a great feeling of satisfaction and reward. Get in touch with us for a chat about how you might help! Give us a ring now on 01962 877772.

Volunteer Drivers Needed

Since 1977 Hartley Wintney Voluntary Care Group has been providing transport to those that do not have any of their own to attend medical appointments at surgeries, opticians and hospitals. We currently provide assistance to over 70 people who live in Hartley Wintney, Mattingley and Heckfield and are one of 7 similar organisations that provide a similar service to people across the Hart District Council area. There are over 100 similar groups operating throughout Hampshire.

Some of the current drivers are still working and most are involved with other voluntary organisations and state which days of the week they might be available. For some, that means that they are only free on one or two days a week and then not necessarily every week. Car mileage costs and parking charges are reimbursed, so that drivers are not out of pocket.

So if you can spare just a few hours even as little as once every few weeks and would like to learn more please call Chris Cornwell on 01252 843251 or e-mail him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Hartley Wintney Conservation Volunteers

The Hartley Wintney Conservation Volunteers meet on the second Tuesday of every month to carry out conservation works on Hazeley Heath, Phoenix Green or West Green Common. Take part in heathland restoration or woodland management, for the benefit of your local green space and wildlife. There are lots of reasons for volunteering, whether you want to gain experience in the conservation sector, get some healthy exercise outside, or just meet with like-minded people for a fun day out.

Volunteer Lookers

On Hazeley Heath a ‘grazing trial’ is underway to see if grazing with cattle is a more sustainable and locally acceptable approach to managing the heathland for conservation. Throughout the 5 year trial we will be recruiting volunteer ‘lookers.’ Lookers are generally local people who use the heath a few times a week for dog walking or exercise, and while they are doing so, they keep an eye out for the cattle, or any problems such as damaged gates or fencing. They then contact a member of the Countryside team if they spot anything. It’s as simple as that! It’s a great opportunity if you want to do some volunteer work but can’t give up lots of your time or if you want to get involved with the management of your local nature reserve.

So if you would like any more information about the Hartley Wintney Conservation Volunteers or are interested in becoming a volunteer looker, please call us on 01252 623443 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
