Dyke Farm Nature Reserve Maintenance

HELP WANTED!
Our workforce is becoming depleted due to retirements and people leaving the area so if you can help, please do.

Every Wednesday 10.00am to about 1.00pm
Every Saturday 10.00am to about 1.00pm

We have an ongoing program of 'maintenance days' and, of course, always looking for volounteers to help with the work. Some practical expertise would be especially appreciated but is NOT necessary.
Everyone
is welcome. - just bring clothing suitable for weather conditions, gloves, wellie boots and, if you wish, some refreshment to keep you going (we usually stop for a cuppa at some point). Most work is simple and easy, clearing windfall branches, path maintenance, planting, clearing ditches and various other tidying up jobs. After all, the reserve is just like any other wildlife garden - but bigger.
Apart from the work, 'cuppa time' is also a great opportunity for 'social networking' (posh words for blethering) and to catch up on the latest gossip.
