City MP Mark turns his hand to hedge laying

City MP Mark Lancaster joins forces with The Conservation Volunteers to help lay hedges along one of the city's red routes.

The Conservation Volunteers have been organising practical, green activities in our towns and villages for a number of years and are looking for more volunteers to help them to keep our lush green spaces attractive for people and wildlife alike.

Mark volunteered to do his bit to help The Conservation Volunteers and decided to turn his hand to hedge laying.

Mark Lancaster, MP for Milton Keynes North, said; 'Once I had seen the guys in action I thought I might ruin the precision of the hedge laying, so I took more of a back seat role, it is true what they say it really is an art.'

Monique van Assouw, Community Project Officer at The Conservation Volunteers, said; "It is fabulous to get out there, do something physical and immediately see the improvements we have achieved. We receive a lot of positive reactions from passers-by."

The Conservation Volunteers are looking for more volunteers to help them to maintain local green spaces. If you could spare some time, please contact Monique on; 01296 330 033 or via email;
