Activity Mornings Schedule - January 2020 / February 2020

All Friday activity mornings begin at 10am. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided as well as gloves, goggles and tools as required. Tasks are subject to change due to urgent repairs or weather issues but the meeting place will always be Westerham Road car park. In general the first 10 to 20 minutes will be allocated to litter picking around the ponds and adjacent areas before moving to the main task.

Joint tasks with the Bromley Countryside Volunteers (BCV) or London Wildlife Trust (LWT) begin at 10.30am and end at about 3pm. Meeting place will be on site at the location defined for the task. If you stay for the whole day you will need to bring your own refreshments.

All conservation work is carried out under the supervision of idverde, contractor to the London Borough of Bromley. For those activities that are idverde-led either Steven Lofting (SL), Ian Wright (IW) or Darren Russell (DR) will be leading.

PLEASE NOTE: The tasks in this programme are the main task for the day and if you don't feel that the task is for you please do come out anyway because there are always other things that can be done, by anybody of any ability or age. The main thing is that you enjoy yourself and we get things done that we would struggle to achieve without the help of volunteers.
