October

 

Monday 30th at 10 am:  The Footpath running alongside Wood Green School, and Madley Park, coming out next to the old dairy on the Oxford Hill.

We will be cutting back, weeding and picking up rubbish.
Please wear stout boots and gloves, and bring secateurs, loppers and shears. Brooms and a spade would be useful to clear leaf mould too. We will provide some tools, plus litter pickers and plastic sacks.
Meet at the start of the footpath  just off the Woodstock Road by the school gates.
Parking is a little difficult along the Woodstock Road, so if you can bike or walk instead, or share lifts, it would be better.

Activity Leader: David Colbourne

November

Monday 6th at 10 am: We are splitting into 2 smaller groups to tackle 2 jobs: Middle Farm, New Yatt Road footpath/bridleway, and the Lidl footpath.

So, members with surnames starting with A – J, please meet on the New Yatt Road, at the start of Middle Farm footpath, opposite the end of Early Road, where you can park. You will be cutting back brambles and overhead branches, plus weeds. We will provide some tools. There should not be too much litter, but we’ll bring one bag. Please wear gloves and wellies as it is probably very muddy, and bring secateurs, loppers and shears.

Members with surnames starting with K – Z, please meet in Lidl carpark, taking stout boots and gloves, plus secateurs, loppers and shears. You will be cutting back overhanging branches and weeds, and picking litter. We will provide some tools, plus litter pickers and plastic sacks.
Activity leaders: Juliet Curry and Mark Kail

Monday 13th at 10 am: Deer Park Wood. We will be clearing the industrial estate footpath, and erecting more bird boxes. We will need secateurs, loppers and shears, plus stout boots or wellies (as it is probably very wet and muddy), and gloves. The footpath clearing job needs kneelers and trowels. We’ll meet at the outdoor classroom in the middle of the Wood.
Activity Leader: David John

Monday 20th at 10 am: Foxburrow Wood. We will continue maintaining trees, under James Aylward’s direction, taking outgrown sleeves off, and weeding inside others. Wear stout boots or wellies (because the grass is quite long and wet) and gloves. Bring secateurs, loppers, shears, knives and mallets. Meet in the carpark at the entrance, in Foxburrow Lane, just off the Hailey Road.
Activity Leader: Roger Hepworth

Monday 27th at 10 am: Witan Way riverside path. We will be picking litter, from the north end at the Aquarius flats, right down past the Leisure Centre to Sainsburys. Please wear stout boots and gloves. We will provide litter pickers and plastic sacks. Meet at the wiggly bench, near the zebra crossing opposite the Waitrose carpark.
Activity Leader: Caryl Lansley
