Thursday 7th September will be our next all-day Event. When we will carry on working at the Woodram Farm end of the wood, off the bottom track. We shall be starting the work of forming steps up along a long slope.
If there is a big enough turnout there is also the need to cutback some undergrowth so sunlight can reach several wet patches along the tracks, with the hope that they then might dry out a little.
No previous experience required and there will be tasks to suit all abilities. Working on the steeper slopes can be difficult even when it is dry! Wear stout footwear, bring your packed lunch and waterproofs, just incase. Hot drinks and biscuits and a few tools will be provided but additional spades, shovel, mattocks, club hammers might be useful. Do let us know if you intend to come and if you intend to bring any tools so we do not duplicate too much.
You might choose to walk direct to the worksite. We will meet up at 9:30 as usual where the track enters the wood, the track off the end of Curdleigh Lane, making sure not to take the left fork. One car will take the tools and a couple of helpers to Woodram Farm and carry the tools to the worksite. The rest of us will then walk to the worksite, sign posting the way.
Make a note, this month there is a one-off special Event. On Wednesday 27th September we will join up and work alongside the Neroche Conservation Volunteers who will be providing muscle to help us make a big impact on that long flight ahead. More details to follow later.
