The 'Friends of' scheme

The 'Friends of Queenswood & Bodenham Lake' scheme has been created to ensure regular visitors can obtain an annual parking permit, keep up to date with all the news from the sites via e-newsletters, and be the first to know about upcoming events and workshops.

Becoming a ‘Friend’ is a fantastic way to support these special sites and help to conserve them for years to come. Direct Debit payments will be available later in the year, once the Community Interest Company (CIC) has been established for a minimum period. Also, regular volunteers for Queenswood & Bodenham Lake receive a free parking pass.

All money raised through the scheme will go towards the ongoing management and upkeep of the sites: the wildlife habitat, paths, visitor facilities and events programme.
