Volunteer Event This Sunday, 14 December

There will be a volunteer event this Sunday, 14 December at Fleet Pond.

Why not come along for some fresh air and exercise, as well as having the nice feeling that you’re doing something really useful for the local community?

For further information and booking (which is essential as tools and resources have to be planned beforehand), please contact Hart Countryside Services:

Phone: 01252 623443

Email: countryside@hart.gov.uk

The next Sunday volunteer event will be in January 2015.

The tasks are supervised by Rachel Jones of Hart Countryside Rangers together with members of Fleet Pond Society (FPS).

For this task, Colin Gray, FPS Chairman, writes:

“The task for Sunday will be a big burn-up at the Dry Heath near the reserve car park. We have a lot of cut material to dispose of so, weather permitting, baked potatoes are on the menu (see also picture below). Some vegetation cutting will be included of intrusive birch on the heath.

You will need strong waterproof boots as the soil is still muddy from all the rain but wellies should not be essential. If you need a cold drink, please bring that with you as we only supply a warm drink at mid-morning.

It is not obligatory, but should you wish to bring some festive food with you I am sure we could make good use of it as this is our last session before Christmas.”

Out of interest, here are some pictures from previous December meetings.
