A reminder about Sunday's work party (re-scheduled from August) from 10 am to 3 pm.The weather looks ok for us to continue to clear the Roundhouse garden in preparation for planting trees, shrubs and bulbs etc later in October, as well as strimming the banks and towpath with a bonfire. Plus, if time; continuing to board the edge of the towpath.
New members are very welcome to come along for all or part of the day. I usually provide tea / coffee and Christine a cake, but please feel free to bring along your own hot or cold drinks, and a packed lunch or have lunch in the pub.
As usual, please wear sturdy (preferably steel toe capped) footwear or wellington boots and stout clothes. Long sleeves and trousers are recommended to avoid nettle stings and insect bites. Gloves and all other PPE are provided along with all necessary tools, apart from chain saw equipment.
The site is reached by a well sign-posted AND NOW TARMACKED track to the Tunnel House Inn on the right, as you come down Tarlton Road out of Coates and after a tight bend under a railway bridge. Postcode is GL7 6PW. On arrival at the pub car park, please park on the right.
Dates for the next work parties are:
Sunday 29 September 2019 - scything course arranged by Louise Clarkson
Sunday 20 October 2019 with Butterfly Conservation volunteers
