Volunteers wanted for Woodland Working Group

Fancy some good healthy exercise and also helping maintain the Association’s woodlands, then why not volunteer for the Woodland Working Group? The Group meets on the last Monday of the month, or on an alternative Monday if the last Monday is a Bank Holiday, at 9.30 am at Poole’s Cavern.

Most of the Group’s work is carried out in Grin Wood, but on occasions work is also undertaken in one of the other woods maintained by the Association. The work is not over strenuous and does not involve the use of power tools. For example, a typical morning’s work might involve assisting with the clearing of grass cuttings from the glades or the cutting back of saplings on the glade edges. Other work has included clearing paths and drainage channels and making bird boxes. We usually finish by midday.

Tools are provided, but you do need to come suitably dressed and be prepared to get dirty. If you are interested give us a call on 01298 26978 and ask to speak to Alan Walker.
