The Friends Work Parties make an enormous contribution to the conservation and enhancement of the Park and are usually undertaken in collaboration with National Park rangers under the guidance of our own Work Party leader, civil engineer Alan Mason. They have been particularly helpful in the aftermath of heavy storms that seem to be hitting our coast ever harder and more frequently.
They meet most Tuesdays, starting at 10am and usually finish around 3pm with a coffee and packed lunch break. The location will vary from week to week and may be dependent on the weather so please check by going to Work Party News or contact Alan Mason direct (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tel:- 01437 762387 (07795 196161) for that weeks meeting location.
Although we have a group of regulars you don’t need to come to every work party – you can pick and choose to suit you – the only thing we ask is that you come equipped with stout (ideally steel toe caps) boots or wellingtons.
So what might you find us doing – well this is best demonstrated by some of our recent tasks:-
It is not unusual for our work parties to contribute the equivalent of some 200 volunteer days on improvements throughout the park. It is a great way to spend a day out in the park, meeting new friends, keeping fit and learning about the Wardens work and how the park is maintained for all to enjoy.
Please contact Alan Mason if you would like to know more or attend a session to meet other members of the group. For insurance purposes it is desirable for your own protection to become a member of the Friends. Tel:- 01437 762387 (07795 196161) or e-mail email@example.com
