Bestwood Village: Volunteers are to help restore part of Bestwood Country Park.
Document storage company Shredall has teamed up with Notts County Council to help clear ditches around an old pit heap which was landscaped when it was turned into a country park.
The ditches have been neglected for around 20 years.
Park community liaison officer Sue McDonald said: "Management of the land is very difficult to keep on top of, especially the pit drainage area."

Nottingham: Free storage containers to help people separate their recycling were being given away in Old Market Square today.
The containers were handed out by the city council on a first come, first served basis from 10am to 4pm.
Councillor Alan Clark, portfolio holder for energy and sustainability, said: "The journey recycling takes from your home to commercial reuse depends on the right things being put in the right bins.
"We know residents in Nottingham are keen recyclers, so it is disappointing that their efforts can be spoiled simply by the wrong things being put in the wrong bin. If you are in doubt, leave it out."
