Have you ever taken part in any of the Wandle Trust’s community river cleanups, Himalayan balsam blitzes, Trout in the Classroom or any other events?
If so, we’d like to hear what you thought of your volunteering experience – and what you got out of it.
Our partners at the Wild Trout Trust and social research company Substance (who also developed the Angling Research and Assynt Angling Research projects, and sometimes even get stuck into our cleanups) have spent the last few months designing a survey around the whole Trout in the Town programme.
You may already know that the Wandle Trust’s successful projects formed part of the inspiration for the national Trout in the Town initiative – so we’d love to get as many of our own volunteers’ views as possible.
In turn, combined with the results of a second more Wandle-focused survey which we’ll issue for our July cleanup, we hope to hear all your ideas for making the time you generously give to the Wandle Trust even more rewarding.
And going forward, these surveys will also help us define the value of the opportunities we offer you and our other volunteers: essential information when it comes to drawing up fundraising bids to continue our groundbreaking projects on the Wandle.
You can find the first stage Trout in the Town survey here: it should take just 5 – 10 minutes, and we’d love to hear your views!
