Volunteer Event – Sunday 11 December

The last Sunday volunteer event for 2011 will take place this weekend.

“After some debate on soil conditions and jobs needed, we have decided on a change of location for the December task.

Brookly Reedbed has been cleared of most of the invasive trees and scrub but there is still some tidying up to do and quite a lot of cut material to burn.  As the plan (subject to weather) is for a large bonfire and some baked potatoes this time Brookly seems the ideal place to go.   Meet at the Countryside Workshop as usual at 9.15 a.m.

For any newcomers the Workshop in Old Pump House Close has a postcode GU51 3DN.  However, one visitor found her SatNav took her to Pond View Close so look out for 65 Kenilworth Road as the Old Pump House Close is beside it.

Hope to see you there in festive mood and bearable festive weather.”

The locations referred to above can be found on the map given in the About page (above) to this blog. New volunteers are always very welcome!

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. Signposted directions to the site are available if anyone comes late.

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).

Current volunteers comprise a wide range of ages of both genders. We’re a very friendly bunch and we’re always keen to receive new volunteers, including students on the Duke of Edinburgh and Trident schemes.

To get a flavour of previous volunteer events (including many photos) please use the search facility on the upper rhs of this blog (type eg ‘sunday’).
