WILDLIFE volunteers will get their hands dirty at an Oxford nature reserve tomorrow.

A work party from the Wild Oxford conservation project will be working at Chilswell Valley, South Hinksey, cutting and raking the fen along the reserve's boardwalk.

They will also be trimming some of the willows which are encroaching on the fen at the city's 'Happy Valley'.

The work party runs from 10am to 3pm and all are welcome to join at any time.

No previous experience is required, but volunteers are asked to bring clothes they don't mind getting muddy, garden or working gloves, and lunch if necessary.
