Penistone Workdays


               TRANS PENNINE TRAIL conservation volunteers (Penistone - Dunford Bridge)

Saturday 1st December 10am – 4.30pm - near Hazlehead Bridge (details below)
Wednesday 12th December 10.30 - 4.30pm - venue to be decided

If you haven't come out with us before, don't worry - we generally have a mix of old hands and new, and we’ll explain exactly what to do.

You'll need to bring some lunch, but FREE tea*, coffee, and delicious biscuits** will be supplied (please bring your own mug).

You don't need to let us know if you are coming, and if you can only stay for part of the day that's fine- although you might find it useful to catch the introduction at the beginning of the day.

Saturday 1st December :-

Meet at 10am on the Trail at the Hazlehead Bridge access; please click here for a map.
What will we be doing? 
We will be pruning out trees and overhanging branches, in order to widen the Trail and allow more light to reach the surface; trimming the cut timber to create a number of desirable habitat piles.

Parking If you are coming by car, please be aware that parking is extremely limited at Hazlehead Bridge itself. You might consider parking at Bullhouse Bridge instead and walking along the Trail (20 mins), or even coming on your bike!!

You will need to wear warm clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, and gloves to protect your hands. It can be quite wet (okay, very wet) underfoot, so make sure you wear wellies or sturdy, waterproof, boots - and it’s always a good idea to bring waterproofs.
We do have some tools, but if you can bring bow saws, loppers, or secateurs (if you have them) that would be helpful. Other equipment will be supplied.

Children are very welcome, accompanied by an adult.
If you have any questions….

Please see the website  or ring/text 07704333445 or 01484 865852.

Best wishes,

Kate Dobson

*   Herbal tea now available!
** Some of the biscuits might be mince pies.
