Tuesday 7/3/2017

10:30am to 3:30pm

Would you be interested in helping us out with bonfires when we carry out our conservation days? We are running a practical training session where we will be building and lighting a fire to burn the massive amount of scrub that we created at our last  successful scrub bash. We are aiming to build a list of people who are confident in managing fires at this site, as it is the only way we can safely & efficiently dispose of the cut material. Wear old clothes and bring a packed lunch and drinks. We will only cancel this event if there is a very bad weather forecast - if this happens, the back up day will be Tuesday 14/3/17. Booking essential please.

The residents of St Issey love butterflies! The school has designed and built a splendid garden area with a special emphasis on attracting butterflies. We want to support them on their fund raising day and they have invited us to attend with our own sales stall and also run some children's activities at this event. Can you help us? You needn't be there all day - just a couple of hours of your time would be fantastic. Please get in touch if you can help.
