Community Groups

Tree maintenance in Cobblers hall

Community Groups from Aycliffe and the surrounding villages are encouraged to utilise the environmetal skills and knowledge that Great Aycliffe Town Council has to offer.

The Works and Environment Manager can offer various activities for interested groups.

The type of activities can include fun learning sessions such as pond dipping, minibeasting, nature trails, nature watching and much more.

Alternatively, a group may be interested in taking part in something slightly more energetic such as den making, basis orienteering or nature games. Older age groups can get a great deal from practical maintenance activities such as scrub bashing, tree planting or pond clearance to name a few options.

The Eco centre can also be used as a base for much of these sessions, to find out more please contact the Works and Environment Manager on 01325 300700 or e-mail
