Well this month didn't quite go as planned with regards to the Tuesday sessions (we did manage two which were really worthwhile) and unfortunately that will also be the case for this coming Tuesday as alas I am still testing positive for the "plague"!
We WILL be back out this coming Sunday, the 3rd April from 09:00 - 15:00 and I am delighted to say we will be back in Cannon Hill North for the first time in way too long....
We will set up at the burial mound view point where we will be reinstalling the display board.
There are lots of little tasks that can be done, some of which are local to base, while others involve a bit of a walk (for instance painting benches).
It would also be great for a bird box survey to be completed. A visual one from a non disturbing distance to check they are still there and even better, if they are being used. Hopefully the map will be enough detail to find us, but please ask if you are unsure. We will pop an arrow up where the 2 routes meet so you know you are heading the right way.
All tools and gloves supplied (or bring your own gloves if you prefer). Hot and cold drinks and biscuits also provided. Please bring a packed lunch if staying all day as with the end of the bonfire season there will be no sausages of jacket potatoes.
Any under 16s, please bring an adult (we can keep them supplied with tea and biscuits...or they can join in 🙂). If you are doing your DoE volunteering scheme, this counts towards it and we can fill in the relevant assessment paperwork for you.
Anyone who has not already done so will also need to provide their contact details and those of an emergency contact.
As always, come along when you are able for as long as wish (occasionally we finish earlier than listed).
Knowing rough numbers in advance is useful, so if possible reply to his email or drop me a message.
Next month we will be in Cannon Hill South on Sunday 15th May where hopefully we will be able to top up and extend the scalping on the muddy patch of the bridleway, as well as bench maintenance and bird box survey etc.
June, July and August traditionally see us pulling the invasive Himalayan balsam along Uddens Water. Dates to follow.
Hope to see you there,
