Sunday Volunteer Event Schedule – Late 2010

Volunteers will be very welcome to join us at the following tasks.

We meet at the Countryside Workshop, Old Pump House Close (next to 65 Kenilworth Road) at 9.00 a.m. for a 9.15 start every second Sunday (except November which is the first Sunday).

Date Location Task
12 Sep 10 Fugelmere Marsh Remove alder and sallow scrub.  Remove material from site or burn on site.
10 Oct 10 Fugelmere Marsh Remove alder and sallow scrub.  Remove material from site or burn on site.
7 Nov 10 Gelvert Marsh Remove alder and sallow scrub.  Remove material from site or burn on site.
12 Dec 10 Gelvert Marsh Remove alder and sallow scrub.  Remove material from site or burn on site.

These two marshes are in urgent need of rescue from scrub, hence our concentration this season.

Volunteers will need old clothing, waterproof if rain is expected, protective gloves and wellington boots.  We have a supply of gloves and boots if you do not own these.  Conditions are wet and muddy.  Hazards include deep muddy holes to trap unwary feet, stumps and bramble runners hiding in grass and very sharp tools.

Examples of previous volunteer events can be found by using the search facility on the top rhs of this blog.
