work party reminder for 28/05/2017

By fosh_admin on Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 15:07

Just a reminder – if you haven’t already done so, please let me know if you plan coming tomorrow.

###################################################

When: Sunday 28th May, 09.45 till approx. 14.30 (although anyone is welcome to come down for part of the session).

Who: Young or old, no experience necessary and there’s always something to do even if you can’t do heavy work. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and all children aged 16 or 17 must have the written permission of a parent or guardian. Vulnerable adults must be accompanied by their carer.

Where: Meeting point will be the entrance from Peveril Drive, 09.45, or find us in the woods if you arrive later.

What: We will continue tending to the whips, treat the notice boards, and perhaps also do some stone spreading on paths if they are still wet after last week’s rain.

How: Relevant training will be given where necessary.

Safety: All volunteers must pay attention to the safety of themselves and others. A Risk Assessment will be prepared and will be available for inspection on the day. Please respect all decisions of the work party leader.

Also the use of insect repellent might be appropriate, particularly from spring through to early autumn.

·  Also bring gardening gloves if you have them (although we have a supply if anyone needs them).

·  We will supply appropriate tools, but if you do bring your own, please inspect them for safety.

·  Bring drink and, depending on how long you intend staying, a packed lunch.

·  Waterproofs / sun-cream would be useful to cover every weather eventuality!

·  It is highly recommended that you ensure your tetanus vaccinations are up-to-date.

Please advise the leader of any pre-existing condition that should be taken into account in the event of a medical emergency during the work party.

Please: Let me know if you hope to attend, so that we can ensure an appropriate supply of tools. Hopefully we will see as many of you as possible.
