Work Days

You are very welcome to join our work days which start at 10.00 am on the last Saturday of the month (except August and December). (See dates below). If you would like to attend first of all please contact Maria Gatland. Her details are on the “contact” page of this website. Tools are provided but please bring a drink and/or snack if you feel you need them and always wear appropriate shoes and clothes.  You can work for as long as it suits you but usually we finish by lunch time.  All details and the meeting point will be available here on the website, on posters in the Hurst and also on Twitter – @GatlandMaria.

The next work day is Saturday 23 February

We are so lucky to have such a wonderful ancient woodland on our doorstep and just a couple of hours makes a difference. If you want to help just come along you will be very welcome
