About this Event

About this Event

We are back on the reserve and are holding our monthly Conservation workday every 2nd Saturday from August - December, (Co-vid restrictions and weather permitting) because it is a closed site to the public making it easier to maintain social distancing. We'll be running volunteering a bit differently to keep everyone safe and will be maintaining the following precautions:

Please do not attend if you have symptoms of COVID-19

Please avoid using public transport if you can

Hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser will be available

Please bring your own gardening gloves if you have them? otherwise we will supply you with an clean washed pair of gloves.

We won't be providing hot drinks or biscuits so please bring your own if you would like to

We will be maintaining a 2m distance at all times

We will be limiting volunteer numbers to 6 per workday

We will disinfect tools before and after each session

Please wash clothes that you wear to the sessions regularly

We have be doing some heavy tasks and will require steel toe footwear and they will also be some tasks available that don't require these but if you have some please bring them.

Tasks will include:

  • Clearing vegetation from the glade
  • Extending and creating dead hedging around the glade
  • Cutting back regrowth from invasive species including Holm oak and garden escapes.
  • Clearing litter

Please bring lunch and drinking water and wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty and sturdy shoes (preferably steel toe cap boots).

Please note there are no toilets on the site but you are welcome to find a bush!

Tickets will be offered on a first come first serve basis. We ask that you don't book on to two consecutive sessions so that everyone gets a chance to volunteer. There will be a waitlist so if you book a ticket but something comes up and you can no longer attend please cancel your ticket on Eventbrite so that it will become available for someone else.

Many thanks and see you soon!
