Maintenance work in Oakley Wood

George Green from WWT has informed me that the much delayed thinning operations planned for this autumn are at last due to start in the next couple of weeks. Please take care in the wood and follow the signs that will be appearing.

The normal winter working parties will still be going ahead this year, as they are permitted  within the current lockdown rules regarding volunteering and charitable activities. However, as they say, conditions will apply.  Apart from obvious need for social distancing , work will be split into parties of six to stay within the rule-of-six, and there will be extra measures regarding the use of equipment. The most disappointing aspect is however that the highlight of the morning – coffee, tea and biscuits – will no longer be provided (in line with the Government’s continuing “Make life miserable” policy); you will have to bring your own. It is essential that you contact George Green () beforehand if you plan to attend. George can provide more details if needed. Anyone turning up without informing George first will be turned away.

The first working party will be this Sunday, 8th November, too short notice for anyone to attend who has not already signed up. I will post future dates when I get them.
