Will individual volunteers please let me know by 16 September if they are able to join us at the Autumn Blitz even if it’s for only half a day, so that I can work out a more detailed programme.
I hope to see as many of you as possible in October as this will be the last JLG that I will be organising. Unless someone comes forward to take my place before the New Year this will in fact be the last JLG and I hope that we can all discuss together how we can develop different ways to keep and improve the standard of landscape maintenance on the WHR
I intend to organise a last Dinner at the Goat Inn on the Saturday evening. Everyone who can come will be welcome join us for an enjoyable social get together.
If you are able to attend please let Graham know asap - details below.
If you can, please bring with you the following gardening tools:- Fork, spade, rake, hoe, trowel, small fork, pruning saw, loppers of all types, secateurs and shears. In addition long handled lawn edgers and a stout pair of scissors are very useful for cutting back herbaceous plants in deep borders.
You will need to wear an orange hi-viz jacket or waistcoat with stout clothing and footwear. Waterproof clothing is strongly recommended.
Note: Please let Graham Cartland Glover know if and when you will be able to attend any of the working parties. He can be contacted on 01483 473440, email@example.com. If you have time sheets please bring them with you, if not he will provide some on the day.
Knowledge of plants and shrubs is not essential as many jobs require muscle power and stamina with shovels, barrows and saws. Come and join Graham and his team whether for half a day or the full four days.
