Volunteer Event This Sunday, 5 November

October 31, 2017

There will be a volunteer event at Fleet Pond this coming Sunday and all are welcome to attend (see below for registering).

The task for Sunday will be the clearing of scrub and having a seasonal bonfire on The Dry Heath by the nature reserve car park. We expect to have potatoes to bake as a reward for all the good work!

Warm waterproof boots are recommended but wellingtons should not be necessary.

We meet as usual at the Countryside Workshop, Old Pump House Close, Fleet, GU51 3DN at 9.15 a.m. Please park in Kenilworth Road as parking is very restricted at the workshop.

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 together with members of Fleet Pond Society.

Here are some photos of volunteers from the previous event on Sunday 8 October:
