Measures have been adopted to ensure that the task days are managed in accordance with Covid guidelines. With this in mind our usual request is underlined that volunteers ring the task-leader to tell them that they wish to come and make themselves clear regarding initial assembling arrangements. All tasks start at 10am unless otherwise stated. Please do not turn up unannounced. This could wreck the beginning of the day. Further details on our website.
All this having been said, we are very pleased to get back to work!!
