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 on Old Down will stop over the Christmas/New Year period, with the last work party of 2017 on 14th December, recommencing 11th January 2018



Work parties on Beggarwood

Work parties run from 10.00 to 12.00am.
Normally on the third Saturday of each month

Please note: There will be no work party in December as it conflicts with the Christmas preparations.
As we have no current leader for the work party we will advise if we are able to hold one in January.





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
