Next week we’re inviting volunteers to join us for two tasks to improve the river biodiversity, as part of the Loddon Catchment Rivers Week. We’ll be installing woody debris in the channel with some drier bank side work.
On Tuesday 19th September we’ll be at Frimley Hatches.
Please meet by the vehicle gate over the river, near the Kingfisher Pub (formerly the Quays), off Coleford Bridge Rd. There is some parking on the driveway / local roads. Please ensure you do not park in the pub car park or block the gate access.
On Thursday 21st Sept we’ll be at Rushmoor Bottom in Aldershot.
Please meet at 10:15am by the vehicle gate off Fleet Road A323, opposite the Potters International Hotel. There is plenty of parking along this quiet road. Please note the meeting place has changed from the original volunteer programme.
For both tasks
- We’ll provide tea, tools and kit. Please bring gloves and wellies if you have them.
- Please do not bring nuts / peanuts as I have an exciting allergy to nut smells. This doesn’t include all the silly ‘may contain warnings’, just the obvious ones like snickers bars.
- We’ll go ahead if wet and find alternative jobs on site if the river is too high to work in safely.
- Please meet on site at 10:15am. Alternatively please email us by 9am on Monday if you’d like a lift from Ash Lock at 9:30am or Farnborough Gate at 10am, using firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that our office phone is still down, so if you have any questions please email us.
