Cromwell Bottom Wildlife Group is a group of committed volunteers dedicated to the conservation and development of this important nature reserve. We have many members and are always looking out for more people to join us. CBWG, in partnership with Calderdale Council Public Services Directorate, manages 74 acres of varied habitat including flower meadows, dry and wet woodland, lagoon, a pond dipping platform and bird feeding areas.

CBWG is a registered charity.

If you would like to come and help here are our days, meet at 9.30am:

  • The second Saturday of every month run by CCPSD (Robin Dalton)
  • Every Tuesday and Thursday run by CBWG.  Our work parties will make you very welcome.

Tasks include grass and reed cutting, tree planting and pruning, restoration of paths, maintenance of feeding stations and nest boxes. You can also help in the Cabin on a Sunday! We can guarantee you a very warm welcome, a sense of achievement, plenty of laughs and jollity with like minded people!

For more info why not pop down to the Cabin where refreshments are served every Sunday, opens at 10am – 4.30pm (4pm in winter).   We are always looking out for new people to volunteer in the Cabin too!  Just ask for Jane who manages it all!
