Help the Chiltern Rangers in Dean Garden Woods on Saturday 18th November

Chiltern Rangers are continuing their footpath / glade work in Deangarden Wood from 10.15am. Families and friends welcome.

Location: Basically walk along Lime Avenue continue straight over the bridleway and along the bottom path in Deangarden Wood for about 225m until you come to a footpath that turns right heading straight up the slope (there should be evidence of felling / marked up trees) and that’s where we will be starting.  There should hopefully be a Chiltern Rangers truck parked at that point / very close by.

Timing 10.15am +: John Tay (Chiltern Rangers) will be walking to the work site with National Citizen Service (NCS) from the Rye and, if they are on time, should be there for  around 10.15. John Shaw should be on site from about 10.00 and we will start work after everyone has had a task / safety briefing. The session with NCS is timed to finish for around 1.45 – 2.00pm but there is absolutely no expectation for WWRA residents to stay until then – just come along for whatever amount of time is convenient. There will be about 12 students (16-18 y/o) from the NCS with their supervisor / mentor.

It will be a practical session of tree felling / thinning and possibly dead-hedging and / or a fire.

Families are very welcome to come along (children under 18 must be supervised / accompanied by responsible adult) and there will be some tasks that younger children could do with supervision / adult help. We will be working our way up the path and it’s quite steep so worth bearing in mind if anyone has very young children with them!

As usual Chiltern Rangers will provide tools / gloves as well as tea, coffee and biscuits. The only other requirement is that people dress appropriately for the weather and have suitable footwear.

Please note John Taylors Mob 07734389300 should you need to contact him on the day.
