Conservation Volunteers



The Conservation Volunteers will be heldge-laying on 15th and 29th November and 13th December 2011. They meet at 10 am the Lock House on the island at Lower Sprotborough (access between the bridges), where there is plenty of parking, so if you fancy having a go, now is your chance. Please come prepared with strong shoes, warm/water-proof clothing and a packed lunch. All tools are provided



Three stages of hedge-laying.









                            




The hedge as it is today - ready for a trim?

The volunteers have now had quite a bit of experience of this so there will be plenty to show you the ropes.

Age and gender are no bar either, as ladies are made very welcome and the picture below shows three 80+ year olds who still have lots to offer.
