“Our focus is on creating a cohesive community network, whereby we can support groups and residents to assist each other in making Stoke a great place to live. “
Surrey Wildlife Trust
There are some beautiful open spaces for you to enjoy in and around Stoke. Stringers Common is a SNCI (Site of Nature Conservation Importance) and can be accessed by foot via Juniper Close / Hazel Avenue or through Salt Box Road car park. Whitmoor, Rickford, Chitty’s and Littlefield Commons are also situated close by. Site details can be found on our website.
We run a range of community projects aimed at engaging people with the wildlife on their doorsteps. We work with people from all walks of life to make sure the connection between people and wildlife is not forgotten. We have dedicated community engagement officers who provide support, advice, training and experience to local communities enabling them to enjoy their local green spaces.
Private gardens are valuable urban habitats and have become more and more important as habitats in the wider countryside have shrunk. We are looking for your photos and any records of the wildlife that you find in your garden.
This enjoyment and active participation can take many forms. For more information, please visit our website.
Volunteer opportunities: We are looking to recruit gardeners and / or enthusiasts who may be interested in training to help advise and inspire people to create wildlife gardens.
