Harrison's Rocks - Volunteers Needed - 10th &11th November 2018

The tree surgeons will be in at Harrison’s Rocks during the week 5th – 9th November 2018 to cut the next compartment (G) for the agreed woodland management plan.

The BMC are asking for volunteers to help on the weekend of Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November to help clear remaining branches and logs, creating habitat piles, lining footpaths and clearing overgrowth.

The meeting point is the Harrison’s Rocks carpark at 9.30am where a safety briefing will take place and an explanation of the work that needs to be done. There will be a coordinator present on each day from the Harrison’s Rocks Management Group; Sarah Cullen on Saturday 10th and Adrian Paisey on Sunday 11th. If you turn up later and miss the safety briefing, please find the coordinators on site before you undertake any work.

Additionally, there will be a qualified first aider on site, but please let the coordinators know if you are also first aid trained. Bring gardening equipment like bowsaws, pruners and wear old but warm clothing and bring some lunch.

Parking is £4 a day and the BMC will cover the costs of this (please keep your ticket and notify the coordinator on the day who will provide further information regarding this)

Under 18s are welcome but must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian.
