HUNDREDS of people are expected to volunteer to help wildlife projects, archaeological surveys and outdoor activities within the stunning landscapes of the New Forest National Park.

The annual New Forest Volunteer Fair takes place on March 15 at Lyndhurst Community Centre – a one-stop shop for organisations looking to recruit new volunteers who want to try new skills, meet new people and have fun at the same time.

Last year, 300 people from across Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire came to the fair to meet 30 organisations, like the Forestry Commission, Hampshire Ornithological Society, The National Trust, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, RPSB, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, the New Forest Centre, Furzey Garden and Sir Harold Hillier Gardens.
