Its a good idea to make sure your tetanus inoculation is us to date. We usually work from 10am till 3pm, you don’t have to book in advance, ( unless stated on our conclusive programme page)
Whatever task we do, the aim is always to enjoy yourself. We have members of all ages, both men and women. There is no commitment required and everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace.
Use the contact page on this website to get in touch with us and log your interest, sending us your land line telephone number The Group Secretary will then ring you for a chat and to invite you to walk the meadow, giving you the history of the group and describing the type of work we do.
