HELPING WITH GENERAL SITE MAINTENANCE

Our beautiful site, with all its buildings, green spaces and the brook requires a great deal of regular upkeep and repair. A lot of the work can be done by volunteers, which saves money and keeps plot rents down. Peter, our Ground Steward, leads a team of helpers who would welcome more willing hands, on a regular or occasional basis for the following jobs.

WORKING PARTY

Every Saturday morning from 9.00 to 12.00 (refreshments provided). Some examples of jobs:

  • pruning trees around the site
  • maintaining the brook and keeping it clear of debris
  • painting and repairing buildings
  • checking and updating the security of our site and its boundaries

BIG TIDY-UPS

Two or three times a year on a Saturday morning from 9.00 (lunch provided).

  • cleaning and tidying up public areas (usually in advance of an Event) and doing general jobs as above

SKILLED WORK
