VOLUNTEERS are being recruited locally by the Woodland Trust.

The charity is holding an information day at Drumlanrig Castle on Saturday for anyone interested in getting involved.
Woodland Trust volunteers are involved in a wide range of activities indoors and outdoors, including recording ancient trees, looking after sites, helping with planting, spotting threats in planning applications and public speaking – there are tasks to suit any knowledge or fitness level.
Spokesman George Anderson said: “We currently have 170 people volunteering with us around Scotland. They all gain tremendous satisfaction knowing they are contributing to a better future for our woods and trees.
“The gathering will be very relaxed with no pressure to make a commitment. It is a chance for people to find out a bit more about what volunteering involves so they can decide if it is for them.”
To reserve a place or for more information about the recruitment session, call Matilda Scharsach on 0343 770 5510.
