Practical Conservation

Task days for 2016

We aim to have a pleasant day out doing some useful practical work. Tea/coffee, biscuits in the morning and soup and rolls provided for lunch. Tools and gloves provided. All are welcome. We work until about 3pm but no problem if anyone wishes to do a half day. There will be other tasks fitted in throughout the year – some at weekends. Contact Martin Charlesworth for further details 01772 784692 or email

Most task dates are the last Thursday of the month.

Last year we averaged 2 task days a month and additional tasks will be slotted in this year on other days of the week including weekends. For examples of different tasks see the review below. Tools,

training and gloves etc are provided. Tea/coffee biscuits and a light lunch also provided. All ages and abilities welcome.

*Tree nursery at Stocks boardhouse, can you help? We will soon be planting seeds and cuttings at our tree nursery next to UU’s Boardhouse just outside Slaidburn. If you live locally and can drop in occasionally (especially in the summer during dry spells – there may be one or two!) then we would be delighted to have your help. Drop me a line or phone me for further details.
