What's On

Volunteer Work Party Thursday 20th January at Owen's Sidings

For this work party we will be working at and near Owen's Sidings which is approximately half-way between the M1 tunnel and Cherry Tree Lane Bridge (at the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead)- easily identified by two make-shift benches that have been set up there. 

The work will involve coppicing a variety of tree and shrub growth to open up views and widen the route, particularly approaching Owen's Sidings. For thaose wishing to drive over we have permission to park in the Aubrey Park Hotel's car park from where we can cross the road and walk along a farm track to the Nickey Line. For those planning to cycle, please note that it is currently very muddy pretty well all the way from the M1 tunnel.

Please meet us either in the Hotel Car Park at 9.30 am or at Owen's Sidings at 10.00 am. Please remember to bring your own refreshments. including lunch if you plan to stay for the afternoon. 

If you plan to come along please email or text Geoff beforehand: / 07903476584
