Volunteers are always welcome to join our monthly Sunday working parties at the Pond.
We assemble at the Countryside Workshop, Old Pump House Close, (off Kenilworth Road) Fleet, around 9.00am to start work at 9.15 am
Tasks usually stop around 1.30pm but we can continue after lunch if enough volunteers decide to stay.
Please ensure you wear warm, old clothing which is likely to become wet and muddy. Take care when walking over the soils as there can be hidden stumps and deep holes in the marsh.
Our tools are very sharp so use great care when carrying and using them. Please do not hang bowsaws on stumps or trees where a passing volunteer can walk into them. Training and correct use of tools is always given before a task is started. It is important that when using tools youngsters under twelve are supervised by an adult. We ask parents to accompany the under 12s to all working sessions please.
We supply a warm drink and the famous delicious homebaked energy-cakes mid-morning. All tools are supplied and we have a stock of wellington boots and protective gloves if you do not have your own.
For more information please contact Task Co-ordinator Colin Gray as follows:
