Sunday Volunteer Task – 4 November 2012

Colin Gray writes:

“I did a preview walk yesterday to check conditions for this Sunday’s conservation task. We will work up on the Dry Heath, close to the footpath that runs parallel to the railway line.  There are a lot of birch seedlings and saplings to be removed. We will be joined by a team from the Guides and also a team from Wildlife Explorers. Wellingtons should not be necessary but I recommend strong shoes!

On the other side of the car park is a very large stack of cut birch from a wet day task when we could not have a fire. Some volunteers can follow the tractor and trailer over there and bring back the cut material to add to the fire.”

Meeting arrangements:
We meet at the Countryside Workshop, Old Pump House Close (next to 65 Kenilworth Road) at 9.00 a.m. for a 9.15 start. Signposted directions to the site are available if anyone comes late.

Volunteers will need old clothing, waterproof if rain is expected, protective gloves and wellington boots (we have a supply of gloves and boots if you do not own these).

Current volunteers comprise a wide range of ages of both genders. We’re a very friendly bunch and we’re always keen to receive new volunteers, including students on the Duke of Edinburgh and Trident schemes.
