Workdays On The Trans Pennine Trail – Penistone

Our next workday will be this Sunday 6th May  10am – 4.30pm

Once again we're working in Penistone, meeting at 10am on the Trail at the St John’s Community Centre access. This is about half way between the station and the showground; click here for a map. We aim to finish about 4.30pm.

What will we be doing?
Cleaning signs
Pruning out tiny trees
Removing broken branches
Collecting litter
Enhancing the area
If you haven't come out with us before, don't worry; we generally have a mix of old hands and new.

Parking is easy – we have been given permission to park in St John’s Community Centre car park, just off Church Street. (Access to the Trail is in the far right hand corner of the car park)

You will need to wear old clothes, suitable footwear, and gloves to protect your hands. And you might well need waterproofs, unless we’ve run out of rain by then.

Bring a packed lunch  - the Arthouse Café is next to the trail here, and other places will be open where you can buy food if you prefer.

Free tea, coffee and biscuits will be available, just bring your own mug!

Although we do have some tools, it would be helpful if you can bring bow saws, loppers, or secateurs, if you have them. Other equipment will be supplied.

Children are very welcome, so long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Best wishes,

Kate Dobson
