Working sessions
We are again planning to carry out some regular maintenance in and around East and West Hanney this year. We plan to work from 09:00 until noon, and as usual, the location will depend upon what needs to be done. Please add these dates to your diaries. It would be great if everyone could do at least one session during the year as it then spreads the load out.
*** Venue and work details will be advised each month by email to subscribers of our E-newsletter ***


Next Working Party will be 19th February

We are looking for volunteers to organise each weekend, so please contact us via the contact form.


Saturday 19th of February
Details to follow.

Saturday 15th of January
The group assembled wrapped up against what was a chilly morning with a light frost to tackle the stretch of Letcombe Brook meandering between Philberds and Poughley Farm, where it had been identified that at least three fallen branches and one rather large tree had started to cause significant obstructions in the water flow. After a quick safety briefing, taking into account the weather and COVID, the hearty bunch split into two working groups with the larger group tackling the large tree.

After two hours of hard work, sawing, pruning, raking and consolidating wood piles (one which very much looked like a den) all of the tasks identified plus a few minor additional ones such as bramble clearing were completed and a tired and rather warmer team finished for the day. The following members are thanked for their assistance Mark, Paul, Keith, Meryl, David S, Violeta, Stewart, Lamorna, Jane and of course and a big thank you to Dickon and Ian for towing the trailer. Clive M who although not able to show up on the day is also thanked for all the preparation and loading of the trailer which without would not have enabled the session to run as smoothly as it did.
