There will be a volunteer event at Fleet Pond this coming Sunday and all are welcome to attend (see below for registering).
Colin Gray, Chairman of Fleet Pond Society, writes:
“The task for next Sunday will be more holly clearance along the boardwalk from Sandy Bay to Coldstream Glade. The cut material will be shipped to the Fugelmere Marsh fire site for burning. Weather permitting, we can have a large fire which means that baked potatoes are on the menu, with butter and cheese to choice.
As this is the last task before Christmas, you will be welcome to bring along some festive goodies to add to our mid-morning break if you wish.
I recommend strong footwear, preferably waterproof, and tough “holly-resistant” clothing. Protective gloves are available.
If you find holly with berries during your labours, you are welcome to take it home to “deck your halls” as a thank you for your time and effort.”
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
The Sunday volunteer tasks are supervised by a Hart Countryside Ranger together with members of Fleet Pond Society.
