Volunteer Work Parties

Small Volunteer Work Party at Hemel Hempstead - Thursday 11th August

Small Volunteer Work Party Thursday 11 August - Meet at Midland Road Bridge at 10.00 am

This will be a small work party to clear scrub and brush to open up the view of the Midland Road Bridge, along with some undergrowth clearance and litter picking near the bridge if there is time. Maximum of 3 volunteers.

There is on-street parking on Lower Adeyfield Road and on the ‘green’ by the Midland Road bridge. The plan is to work until about 12.30 pm.

Volunteers are requested to bring their own gauntlets (if preferred); other tooling and kit will be provided.
