The August work party dealt with a lot of tasks, yet the bonfire remained unlit. So, bonfire, trim back the roadside and middle hedges, reduce green algae from the bottom pond, rake mole hills and fill depressions in the paths, reverse rake and strim a section of the hay meadow, are just a few items on the menu for September’s gathering.
Meet at the reserve on Saturday, 20th September, at 9:30 am. We will finish around lunchtime.
All members are welcome and no previous experience is necessary. Please wear appropriate work clothes, stout shoes, boots or wellies, and gardening gloves or equivalent. Appropriate tools to bring, although some are available, would be hedge clippers/shears or secateurs, loppers, spade, garden rake.
Organised work parties take place at the Jim Mart reserve on the morning of the third Saturday in every month, except in December.

Please note that this month I will not be contactable until the evening of Friday 19th.
