FORCE are a fun bunch of people who care about the local environment where they live and play. Our members are keen cyclists, ornithologists, dog walkers, environmental warriors, fishermen, football players and walkers. In fact, we come from all walks of life with lots of diverse interests and views.  The thing we have in common is our enjoyment of the green spaces of the River Crane, both wild areas and cultivated park areas.  FORCE would love you to join us in supporting the Crane whether you have an hour or two each month or more time. You can get help in a number of ways.

You can become a member and ... you can help as a volunteer in one or more of our projects ...

We are also seeking suitable persons to help with the charity.  There are a number of vacancies for volunteers to support its work across various portfolios as listed below.  One or more of these volunteer roles could also be as a Trustee.
