Holtspur Bottom work party dates Winter 2014-15

The winter work parties at Holtspur Bottom are now over, but our "sister" reserve on the other side of the valley, Holtspur Bank LNR has work parties on the last Sunday of every month until the end of June, and then again from September. Any help you could give them would be much appreciated! Their work parties start at 10am, and normally continue till around 12 noon.

There is always a range of things to do, and no great strength or previous experience is necessary. You can choose which tasks you take on, and can work for as long as you wish.

Unless otherwise stated, all necessary tools and full instructions will be provided on the day. If you have them however, you may prefer to bring your own loppers and bow saw.

We will be having some work parties over the summer at Holtspur Bottom, the first of these probably at the end of May or start of June to plant Dark Mullein seedlings, and then throughout the summer removing ragwort from our meadows. We would welcome your help with these tasks, contact Tony Gillie (01865 751201) or Nick Bowles (01442 382276) for more information.
