Volunteer Event This Sunday, 14 February

There will be a volunteer event at Fleet Pond this coming Sunday and all are welcome to attend (see below for registering).

Colin Gray, Chairman of Fleet Pond Society, writes:

“We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day by doing some more crucial work up on the Dry Heath by the reserve car park. Birch to remove and some gorse to coppice.

We have decided to throw caution to the wind – well in a carefully selected site anyway – and have a bonfire near the work site. There is already a pile of cut material to burn as a start. Weather permitting, this means we could have potatoes to bake so why not take one home as a Valentine present?

Waterproof boots advisable after all the rain but wellies probably not needed.”

For further information and booking (which is essential as tools and resources have to be planned beforehand), please contact Hart Countryside Services:

Phone: 01252 623443
Email: countryside@hart.gov.uk

The Sunday volunteer tasks are supervised by a Hart Countryside Ranger together with members of Fleet Pond Society.

Ed. I’m not sure the gift of a warm potato is the best way to a loved one’s heart but perhaps it’s the thought that counts 🙂 Either way, we wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day!
