Become a Friend of Holt Island

We have a Friends of Holt Island group to help look after the island. We are a voluntary group dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Holt Island Nature Reserve, The Thicket and Wilhorn Meadow, organising social activities, and fundraising events open to both members and non-members.

Volunteer work parties provide valuable practical assistance to Paul Claydon, HDC Ranger.

We continue to develop ways in which to improve the visitor experience, develop links with schools, youth groups and the community. We would love to welcome you as a member of the Friends.

Yearly membership costs just £10 per household (£5 for an individual), or £150 for lifetime membership (£75 for an individual).

See our Membership Leaflet for more information and to apply for membership. Thank you for your support!
