Please note: Numbers are limited. As a result of Covid-19 restrictions, volunteers from only four households will be allowed on each volunteering day. This is also subject to change.

In addition to the usual outdoor clothing and boots, all volunteers will have to bring their own face covering, work gloves, hand sanitiser and lunch, refreshments and snacks.
