free to bring your most bizarre headwear but don't worry, looking stupid is a bonus not a requirement.

Our first away trip will be to Lawrence Weston, where we will be undertaking reed clearance, as this will require the mini-bus there will be a £2 charge for it, and don't forget to let me know where you want to be
picked up when you sign up!.

Our next event is over the Suspension Bridge at Leigh Woods. No transport necessary (unless,
of course, you're one of those unfortunate people who live a million years away). Leigh Woods is always
worth exploring so please join us for what will probably be mostly scrub clearance. Directions will be
provided closer to the time, keep checking your emails!

picked up when you sign up!.

A weekend of coppicing, path widening and bramble clearance with hot lunch provided by the

there will be a small charge to cover costs. If you have any questions please ask a member of
the committee or have a look through the scrapbook at what happened in previous years.
