Muddy Paths

Sunday June 2nd Working Party Meet 2pm at Mona Road entrance.

Will you help spread some stone to stabilise the muddy paths on The Hook Nature Reserve? We’re working our way through the reserve improving the paths. We can supply wheelbarrows and spades – or bring your own if you have them.

Many hands make light work!
