Volunteer Work Parties

Pre-Chistmas Work Party - Sunday 16th December

For our last work party before Chistmas we will be working on the section between the Luton Road bridge and Roundwood Halt. We will be removing ash and sycamore saplings to prevent them growing any larger. We want to dig out as many of them as possible so please bring a fork if you can. Meet at 10.00 am at the level access point halfway up Park Hill. 

We will provide all tools and gauntlets, please wear appropriate clothing including stout footwear. We will provide festive mid morning refreshments. If you plan to stay for the afternoon please bring your own lunch.

To enable us to provide sufficient tools please let Geoff know if you plan to come along, email:
