Here are all the dates for your diary for the next quarter; from volunteering dates, to activities from organisations around the reservoir!
Walk The Resa
Due to great success this group will now continue to run through the autumn and winter on the first Sunday of the month. 10-11 for the walk, and around 11ish for tea/coffee and cake (weather depending). Meet for either or both at Scotland Lane Picnic Area.
We have almost competed our 12 months of monthly 1hr litter picks to clear historical rubbish from the woods. Out final monthly litter pick will take part on December 10th and will be slightly extended from 9.30-11.30. We will then have succeeded in our mission to clear the woods, and litter picks will be quarterly after that going forward to keep on top of things.
Our conservation group is back for autumn and winter. Our first two sessions focused on clearing space for our Community Orchard Project. The next, on December 17th, 10-1, will return to Bromwich Wood to continue to remove holly to open up pathways, remove places of privacy, and make people feel safer and more confident walking there.
