CCT Summit Section Work Party Sunday 29 Sept.

by: Karen Shaw

A reminder about Sunday's work party from 10 am to 4 pm. We have 8 people being trained to use scythes - there are 2 more spaces if anyone wants to join in with that.  

Please still come along (if you are not taking part in the scything training) as there are plenty of other tasks needing doing such as manually cutting back and strimming the banks and towpath, and keeping a bonfire going. Plus, if time and enough volunteers; 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 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 20 October 2019 with Butterfly Conservation volunteers 
Sunday 17 November 2019 
Sunday 15 December 2019 with Christmas dinner at pub after.

Any questions please contact me: Karen Shaw on 07989 857435 or shawk30@gmail.com.

Look forward to seeing you.
