Volunteer Workday – 28/09/2014

We have a volunteer workday scheduled for this Sunday – 28th September – as usual meet up at the car park on the common below the Twmp at about 10.30am.

Jobs we have to tackle are as follows:

140601_workday_13At long last we have the posts for the Welcome Sign to install near the cattle grid on Mountain Road – we have our friendly farmer to help and direct operations but it is a hefty, solid sign so it will be good to get a few more volunteers to help with digging the holes, lifting it into position etc.

We have a few trees left over from the springtime planting and we’re hoping to get them planted in the triangle by the car park.

The edge of the car park is in a bit of a mess after the recent burned out car there – so we really want to tidy up that area as best we can.

There’s some bare barbed wire by a couple of the kissing gates which needs some sort of covering to stop people catching themselves on it.

The length of the new fences needs to be checked for any damage and the bracken inside the fences needs to be bashed back away from the tree seedlings too.

Of course there’s the usual litter pick to do – last time I was up there, there was a lot of broken glass which needs to be cleared away.

As usual we’ll have tea and biccies available.

As you can see there’s lots of little tasks to do, so can we please try to get a good attendance for this.


We have plenty of rubbish bags, gloves, hi-viz vests, pick-up sticks and most other tools and equipment that will be needed but you are welcome to provide you own.

Please remember to dress appropriately for the terrain and weather. We are properly insured but you will be expected to be aware of your own safety and act responsibly

If you can’t drive up there please contact us via email and we’ll try to arrange some transport for you. Similarly if you are able to offer anybody a lift please let us know.
