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:
“Our task for the coming Sunday is an attack on birch and a coppicing of gorse up on the Dry Heath adjacent to the reserve car park.
Assemble as usual at the Countryside Workshop at 9.00 for a 9.15 a. m. start. The soil will not be as muddy but could be wet underfoot so waterproof boots recommended.
This is our last task before Christmas and our tradition has been that anyone who feels in a festive mood can bring along some festive nibbles to share around. This is not an obligation so you will not be turned away, or denied any nibbles, if you cannot make a contribution!”
For further information and booking for this event (which is essential as tools and resources have to be planned beforehand), please contact Hart Countryside Services:

The Sunday volunteer tasks are supervised by a Hart Countryside Ranger, Nick Macfarlane, together with members of Fleet Pond Society.
