Monday 25th June at 12 noon: Mid-Summer Picnic

Monday 2nd July at 10am: Stanton Harcourt Road path and cycle path.  We will be cutting back encroaching vegetation along the footpath on the west side of Stanton Harcourt Road, heading north from Manor Road and to the cycle path on the east side of the Stanton Harcourt Road from Manor Road heading south and north. The cycle path is quite long heading north and there is a well-kept section from Manor Road to Eton Close, beyond which it again needs attention.

You will need boots and good gloves. Bring shears, loppers, brooms and secateurs. We will provide plastic sacks and litter pickers although there was little evidence of litter when I cycled the route.

Meet at the top of Cogges Hill Road with its junction with Stanton Harcourt Road. Cars can be parked at the bottom of Cogges Hill Road on the right hand side.
