Work Parties
Work parties on Old Down  every Thursday morning 10am at Old Down Hall. We don't mind if it's cold as you soon get warm but unrelenting rain is a different matter. You will be sent a confirmation email the day before if you are on our list of volunteers.

Please note:  Work parties will cease over the Christmas and New Year period.  The last work party will be on 13th December and the first for the New Year on Thursday 17th January 2019.


Work parties on Beggarwood
At present we have no leader for work parties on Beggarwood.  If anyone is interested would they please contact us at odandbwd@gmail.com






For courses you need to be a full member (annual subscription £5.00) but there is no further fee for the course. For other events a donation of £2.00 from non members and £1.00 from members is requested. For work parties we should probably pay you but sadly it doesn't work that way


For enquiries and courses contact Jill Lincoln at odandbwd@gmail.com
