Monday 13th May at 10am: Deer Park Wood. We will check all internal fences. Repairs are required to the fence adjacent to the south entrance gate, a replacement post needed to the area of enclosed dogwood opposite the birch trees at the south entrance and behind Colin Ramsbottom’s bench. Replace damaged guards to fruit trees and collect field stone from the west woodland path to stockpile for path reinforcement at the central meadow pinch point. We will provide a sledge hammer, fence repair tools, wheelbarrow and cable ties, you will need gloves, stout boots and ensure legs are covered as there have been early reports of Blandford Fly. Park on Range Road and meet at the south entrance.

Monday 20th May at 10am: Stanton Harcourt Rd path and cycle path. We will be cutting back encroaching vegetation and sweeping leaf litter along the whole length of the path. 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. Park on Cogges Hill Road and we will meet at the junction with Stanton Harcourt Road.
