Campsite Working Day

14th November 2015, 10:00 - 16:00

Campsite Working Day

During the autumn & winter months we perform Sweet Chestnut coppicing and other major groundwork as part of our Five Year Plan to develop the campsite for the benefit of members of the Scout Association.

This month we need to start work on keeping the brambles at bay on the Activity Field.
We also want to extend the Car Park along the boundary fence towards the Chapel Site, and to move & repair the yellow barrier.

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing & gloves, and bring gardening tools such as forks, spades, rakes, pruners, loppers etc. to dig up or cut back the brambles, and for general ground clearance.
As we will be burning the resultant “garden waste”, some garden / rubble bags would be useful for moving it around.
It’s likely that some tree stumps will have to be dug out, but we have a winch to use for this.

In December, we hope to hire a Mini Digger with a wide bucket to scrape up the mulch and level the Activity Field, and a Dump Truck to deposit the mulch down the slope by the Chapel Site.

Next year, we will be re-seeding the Activity Field, and want to rebuild and extend the seating around the Chapel Site to include a new campfire circle.

If you would like to help out, please just come along for as long as you can spare (it doesn't have to be all day) and you'll receive a warm welcome from the team.
We generally start at 10:00, and end at 16:00.
