GHWG Session – Holy Trinity Churchyard

0 Comment

April 2024 Greener Henley Wildlife Group (GHWG) Session

HOLY TRINITY CHURCHYARD – Everyone is welcome, no experience required!

Date and Time – Wednesday 24 April, 9:30am – 12:30am

Meeting Place – In front of Holy Trinity Church, RG9 1SE, SU759822

Things to Bring – Gardening gloves, garden shears and garden rakes, the metal ones used for raking soil will be best, if you have them

Because of the rain we weren’t able to rake up all the grass that was cut in the March session so our main task will be raking that up.

I hope you will be able to join us at our session.  As many tools as possible will be provided, but it would be helpful if some people could bring their own when requested.  If you haven’t already done so, could I please ask everyone who intends coming to work parties to provide the contact details specified in the table below. Procedures relating to risk assessments require these details to be lodged with the Town Council. They state that ‘All information will be kept safe and confidential.’

Please contact Lex or me if you have any queries. It would be helpful if you could let us know if you are attending a session to help ensure we have enough tools, tea, coffee and cake. Lex works for the Town Council on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. His work mobile is 07508 427026.

If you know anyone else who may be interested, could you please forward this e-mail to them. If you no longer wish to be reminded about these sessions, please let me know.

Best wishes,

Greener Henley Wildlife Group sessions

Our sessions are generally pleasant and sociable occasions. Some of the work is quite strenuous, but there are always lighter tasks for those who would prefer them, for whatever reason. We have a break mid-morning when refreshments are provided: tea, coffee and cake. Please bring your own gardening gloves. Any gardening gloves will be all right for tasks like pulling Himalayan Balsam but heavier ones will be needed for working with brambles. No previous experience is necessary, and tools are usually provided. Tough clothes and stout footwear are recommended. Marsh Meadows is often wet underfoot so waterproof footwear is recommended when we are working there, particularly if working in the pond area. Volunteers are welcome to join us for the full three hours or any part of them.

If you intend coming to work parties and haven’t already provided the information in the table below, could I please ask you to do so.
