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.
All this having been said, we are very pleased to get back to work!!
We are glad to be emerging from the limitations of Covid Lockdown. Not all the venues previously open to us are yet accepting volunteers. However it is hoped volunteers will find opportunities from the list below to get out in the countryside working with others.
Please note that it is essential to phone the task-leader in advance of coming to the task day.
