The Conservation site on the Highworth road is now in its final stage of clearance. We still have some final jobs to do before we can start to lay the foundations for the pathway on the site. We will need help from our village volunteers to move a large amount of gravel from one ton bags onto the pathway as well as working on the removal of a large amount of tree branches and larger trunk logs for use on the site.
Work is also underway to prepare the planting layout for the site as well as preparing the locations for the two bridges, hides and out door teaching area. The SMAWL group is also putting together our applications for Grant funding to help us raise the additional funds we require to purchase the many items we need in order to complete this years planned work.
In order to establish a regular working routine for 2011 we have put together a list of Volunteer working dates for the year.
These will be on the 3rd Saturday of each month and commence at 10am and finish at 4pm. As usual there will be a morning break for refreshments and a break for lunch. Every one is welcome to join us for the day and a part of the day. A great way to get out doors with the family and help to build something that all the village residents will be able to enjoy.
