Volunteer Work PartiesRegular monthly volunteer work parties are held at Tice's Meadow on the second Saturday of each month. From January 2018 we will also be holding a second work party each month on the fourth Saturday.
Other work parties are scheduled as and when TMBG members are free on a week day, or a team of external volunteers asks to come and help us.
All tools and equipment are supplied, no experience is necessary. Work parties last approximately 4 hours, tea and coffee are supplied, all are welcome to join in. Meet at 10am at Horton's Mound, unless stated. Tasks are weather dependant. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and bring gloves if you have them.
