Main work will be raking after the strimmer but there may also be trimming of woody vegetation.
Rakes, loppers and small saws will be useful tools to bring but 3 branch hay rakes will be available on the day.
Meet at the end of the lane leading to Purchas Farm [ST 108 154]. Leave the M5 at junction 27 and take the A38 towards Wellington. After about 3 miles, just passing over the M5, turn right onto the B3391 signposted Culmstock & Hemyock. After 1.1 miles turn left signed to Woodgate/Beacon. Continue for 0.7 miles going straight across 2 sets of crossroads and passing a “no through road” sign, and park where you can at the end of the lane. From here it is about 1/2 mile to the reserve [ST 115 155] with a steep uphill section initially.
For our work days we recommend bringing boots/wellies, gardening gloves, waterproofs, lunch and a drink. No need to book but a contact number is provided for any queries or to check if forecasted bad weather might cancel the event. Attendees can stay as long as they wish but should always inform the contact on the day if they leave early.
