These dates break with our tradition of doing the sites in-turn, Meadow – Orchard – Hedgerow. Traditionally, we have managed to get five full “cycles” across the sites. In the past, we have had sessions into April, but this is getting too close to nesting so, we have decieded to stop at the end of March.

The reason for the change is that we have the start of an Orchard only group that we wish to encourage. Consequently, we will have all our Orchard work parties on a Sunday, with the most of these occurring before Christmas.

We will concentrate on the Meadow but the Hedgerow still gets its fair share of work parties, but only on a Thursday.
