As it is Remembrance Sunday we will be observing 2 minutes silence at 11am.
We are continuing our heathland project that we started in 2019, but were unable get much further on during the winter of 2020/2021 for obvious reasons...
Hopefully we are able to make some real progress this winter.
We have 6 sessions pencilled in on this project (See dates below) and may try and fit a few more in if possible.
We are onsite from 9am until 2.30pm. As usual, you are welcome to start and finish when it suits.
Don't forget the clocks go back!
We may also finish earlier depending on the weather.
The task mainly comprises of cutting and dragging pine & birch from the heath to the fire site.
The ground conditions are a little challenging, but there are easier areas for the less adventurous.
We are hoping to have a bonfire and jacket potatoes around 1pm.
Hot and cold drinks, biscuits, gloves and tools supplied.
The work site is 10 minutes walk from the nearest parking off Uddens Drive (North of the A31)
If you stick to the main vehicle track through Uddens plantation, you can't miss us.
Parking - SU 04997 01187 W3W /// older.tributes.foot
(Or a little further up Uddens Drive, where parking is available on both sides of the road. Please don't block the gates).
Work site - SU 05587 01601 W3W /// fear.marked.width
This is definitely a task where we benefit from as many people as possible.
All welcome (under 16s to be accompanied).
If you have not been before (or recently), we will need your name and a contact number (for track and trace) and also an emergency contact.
Please let me know if you are planning to come along.
