Current Tasks Program

General Information

Bring suitable working clothes, waterproofs and wellies, something waterproof to sit on (a bin bag) plus food and drink. For those who are unsure of where to go please ring the task leader. 

 

The outlined task description is a guide to give you an idea of what work to expect but quite often events overtake us and we may be given something quite different to do.

 

Please note that some Post Codes have been included to assist those with Sat. Nav. and give a general indication of the vicinity of the task and not necessarily the exact location.

Don't forget to keep up your tetanus jabs. If you have had a few over the years it is possible that you won't need any more, but please make sure. 

               PLEASE NOTE ALL MEETS ARE AT 10AM UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

All our tasks at the moment are subject to the current government guidelines on Covid 19.
