We will be having a working party to start clearing the undergrowth and the piles of builders sand at the outland site. This will enable the movement and better parking of vehicles in readiness for the scaffold company coming to the site. Their presence will greatly benefit the group with their expertise in covering the upper parking area.


If any volunteers who are able to help, have spades or wheelbarrows they would be greatly  appreciated
