IMPORTANT. A message from our Chair :-
Well, I managed to make the meeting and it was very positive with a number of us, the new guy Cliff, with two colleagues called Andy, and two people from the school. I am pleased to tell you that it has been agreed that we will have a working party on Saturday 18th June, and that the school is planning to participate.
We shall meet as usual by the school gates at 10.00 and Andy will advise us what needs doing and provide some tools. Please wear gloves and bring water if at all possible as we shall be out for a couple of hours and will (hopefully) get warm from our exertions!
As in the past, I will remind you of this date a week before but I shall hope to see you there. See also our Work Groups page.
Thank you for your support, take care, stay safe.
For more information about how you can get involved please contact us.
With kind regards
We need you !
