Trans Pennine Trail conservation volunteers work day (Penistone – Dunford Bridge)

 Wednesday 4th March  9.30am – 4.30pm Immediately east of Hazlehead Bridge.  The meeting point is on the Trail, at Hazlehead Bridge Station.

They’ve done quite a bit of work, on and off, at this site. Wild flowers have now begun to appear, including Russian Comfrey, and they’re looking after the area to try and encourage them. The day will be a mixture of cutting back old vegetation, pruning regrowth, and removing a few more of the self-set Birch saplings on the left hand (south) side.

Parking is tricky here; if you haven’t been before, and need to come in your car, please get in touch with them for advice.

You’ll need to wear…warm old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or torn, sturdy footwear, and warm gloves – perhaps waterproof -to protect your hands.

Do bring waterproofs and a packed lunch – they will provide you with tea, coffee, fruit juice, biscuits and conversation. They do have tools, but you’re welcome to bring your own bow saw or loppers, in good condition, if you prefer.

You’re welcome to give Kate a ring on 07704 333 445 or 01484 865 852, if you have any questions or need further information – or have a look at the website tptcv.co.uk or their Facebook page facebook.com/tptconservationvolunteers
