2024 Workparties:
Dates arranged are as follows. (All 10 til 3ish)
T.B.A                                         

It is area 1 this winter, the piece nearest the eastern car park. This is a large area and may not get finished so as many volunteers as possible please.

At present, we are still not able to use chainsaws so are limited to hand tools only, and will just have to get on as best we can.

As a consequence, I would ask that people who can come out help cutting down the trees and shrubs, rather than just taking out wood for themselves- we can spend so time towards the end of the day clearing out cut material.

Despite the drizzle, a dedicated band of volunteers turned up for the last workparty of the season.
The area was made tidy and although looking like a mud-bath at the moment will hopefully
produce spring flora in the not-too-distant future.
