Volunteer Work Party Thursday 6th October south of Knott Wood
This work party will take place on Thursday 6th October between Knott Wood and Redbourn where we will be cutting back vegetation and coppicing on both sides of the track to improve biodiversity and open up views in both directions.
We will meet at 10.00 am at the bench half way between Knott Wodd and Redbourn and finish at about 3.00 pm, but of course you can leave whenever you want.
We will provide tooling and safety equipment (gauntlets, eye protection, first aid kit), but please bring your own drinks for the mid-morning break (we will provide biscits) and your own drinks and food for lunchtime (if you are staying for the afternoon).
So that we can provide the correct amount of tooling and biscuits please let me know beforehand if you plan to join us (email@example.com ).
Volunteer Work Party at Cherry Tree Lane Bridge, Wednesday 19 October, at10am, and celebrating Roger Green's huge contribution to the Friends
Just over 2 years ago, Roger Green, a dedicated NL volunteer, died after a short illness, and it was at Cherry Treee Lane Bridge that he ran work parties for several years to reveal the magnificent structure as much as possible to NL users. He was our railway buff, and is sorely missed.
At 11am his widow Sylvia will be revealing a plaque we will have erected on the bridge in memory of Roger
The work party itself, which runs from 10-am to 3.00pm, will continue Roger's work, and will involve vegetation management
Tools, gauntlets and tabards will be provided. We will provide morning break biscuits, but please bring you own drinks, and packed lunch if staying into the aftermoon
Wear stout footwear, and appropriate clothing
Why not come along to one of our working parties and help with the management of the Nickey Line?
If you are interested, contact us with your details and we shall email you with future work parties
