We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us with our work in standing up for the Hampshire countryside. There are many ways you can get actively involved, either at the branch office or with your local District Group:
- 'Eyes and ears' - we need people to keep in contact with their local District Group to let them know of issues locally that people feel need attention.
- Events help - we run many events in the year to raise funds and always need people to help organise these.
- Planning help - we need people who can monitor and peruse new applications, visit sites and talk to local people about their concerns and reflect that back to the Group.
- Supporting the Campaigns, Projects and Planning Officer for a half or full day a week in the office in Winchester. Opportunities include helping with projects, campaigns and mailings, and dealing with enquiries.
- Joining your local District Group, attending meetings, responding to planning matters or helping with events.
- Recruiting and communicating with local members.
- Volunteers with specialist interests form campaigning groups, sit on steering groups, meet with MPs, councillors and planning officers and conduct research.
We are also looking to fill a variety of specific roles, including an exciting opportunity for a Volunteer Co-ordinator to help us recruit volunteers, manage them and co-ordinate their work, Communications Volunteer (details below), Fundraising, an Events Organiser, Trustees with expertise in fundraising and general governance, and a Committee Secretary. Please contact the office (details below) if you would be interested in receiving a fuller description of these roles.

We are looking for a Communications Volunteer to help with our communications, marketing and media work in 2016, our 50th anniversary year.
Would you like to help us increase membership of and support for CPRE Hampshire and raise awareness of our work? Can you help us improve our communications? Fancy making a positive difference to the countryside whilst sharing and learning new skills in a fun working environment?
Do you have a few hours a week or month to help the small friendly team based in Winchester with activities ranging from social media, email marketing, newsletters, news releases and media relations, to developing the website, creating new publicity materials and supporting our roadshow programme?
