Summer of Fun - Kids events every Tuesday and Thursday of the holidays - book early


Task this Sunday is Stockbridge at 10.30 - as we continue with the railings


We are going to continue to the Dean Valley Restoration project started towards the end of last year, and really pushed forward by Skyscanner a fortnight ago. The plan is to remove weed trees from riverside walls, restore the old railings, dig out the brambles and ivy from beyond St Bernards well. We will also get into the river and remove the Himalayan Balsam. So if you can make it details are below and do let us know.
Sunday 2nd July Stockbridge Task. 10.30am to 1.00pm meeting at Saunders Street, St Bernards Bridge end.
