We aim to have a pleasant day out doing some useful practical work. Tea/coffee, biscuits in the morning and soup and rolls provided for lunch. Tools and gloves provided. All are welcome. We work until about 3pm but no problem if anyone wishes to do a half day. There will be other tasks fitted in throughout the year – some at weekends.
