Sims Hill work days start 1st February!

Monthly workdays starting this Saturday – All hands welcome!
For all of you who have been longing to get your hands (and feet) dirty, and have dreadfully missed the monthly Sims Hill work days of yore, you will be delighted to hear that we are reinstituting them again.

We will start this Saturday, 1st February from 10am-3pm, and then continue regularly on the first Saturday of the month thereafter. Get these dates into your diary now… Obviously you don’t have to stay for the whole session.

We will be working in the field at Sims Hill (directions to the field are here), doing some fence/hedge maintenance and digging some shallow soak aways.

Bring your own lunch and drink (hot!)
Wear wellies or boots and bring waterproofs….
