Work Days

We were lucky again with the weather for November's Work Day.  Thank you to everyone who came along to help clear the paths of leaves, litter pick and keep the ditches open. Another successful session. 

We will not be holding a Work Day at the end of December, since it would fall between Christmas and the New Year.  Instead, we will look forward to meeting up on Sunday 26th January 2020.

As usual, all are welcome to come along at 10 am  and, as ever, light refreshments, gloves and all tools will be provided, but please remember to wear suitable footwear. 

Future Events 

In 2020 we are planning our regular Easter Egg Hunt and another Spring Walk with Lindsay, as well as an evening Bat Walk in May.  If all goes well, October should see a return of our Woodland Festival with many different attractions - watch this space for further details!
