Work Parties 2019

Make a date to join up with our Action Group in early 2019. We’ll be out on the River Ver each month improving the river habitat and the bankside environment.

Sat 19th January 2019 10am – 12noon. First up we’ll be at Sopwell Nunnery Green, St Albans pruning trees and bushes along the river and cutting back fallen trees and removing obstructions in the river. Existing members and new faces always welcome! You don’t need waders, tools are provided. Please contact Richard Wallis 01582 794332 or email Richard_Wallis[at]btconnect.com if you’d like to attend.
