Where: Meeting point will be the entrance from Peveril Drive, 09.45, or find us in the woods if you arrive later.

Other Useful Info:
· Please wear suitable gardening clothes and sturdy footwear. Covering arms and legs might be advisable to help avoid insect bites, ticks, stings, scratches, etc.. Also the use of insect repellent might be appropriate, particularly from spring through to early autumn. Bring gardening gloves and other items listed under Covid-19 precautions at the end of this email.
· To minimise sharing of tools, we ask people to bring their own where possible. On this occasion a lopper may be useful but is not essential.
· Bring a drink. We will stop for a break mid-morning.
· Waterproofs / sun-cream would be useful to cover every weather eventuality!
· It is highly recommended that you ensure your tetanus vaccinations are up-to-date.
Please advise the leader of any pre-existing condition that should be taken into account in the event of a medical emergency during the work party.
