Supporting the Trust
Volunteers and Supporters
The Harnham Water Meadows Trust is a small, registered charity based in Salisbury. It is run solely by volunteers and rely on contributions from our supporters and some government grants to keep the water meadows beautiful for centuries to come.
Volunteer in Salisbury with The Diggers
Our hardworking team of regular workers is known as ‘The Diggers’.
Their critically important work includes maintaining the ‘carriers’ and ‘bedworks’. These are the channels that move water around the meadows. They also keep the hatches that control the flow of water working efficiently. When that is done, there is always plenty of pruning to be carried out to control the plants and trees. We are eternally grateful to The Diggers. They literally keep the water running!

Donations and collections
The Harnham Water Meadows Trust relies on kind donations. These come from our registered supporters and collections from our events.
Specific restoration projects can be sponsored, either individually or by organisations. One-off donations are very welcome, as is ongoing monthly support. Many donations can be gift-aided, which is very helpful.
Legacies and wills
Some supporters choose to leave a legacy or gift in their Will, having enjoyed the meadows during their lifetimes. Contact us if you need further details.
