Event Diary

 

 

To view a map giving the location of the meeting point, click once on the grid  reference,

Should you require a Post Code for the start location, to programme into a satnav, look at the bottom of the map and click where it states “Click here to convert coordinates” this will show you the closest post code. Please be aware that a post code for a country location can cover a wide area and will not always give you an exact location.

 

If you prefer to use the "What Three Words Code" for navigation, the code is listed under each task entry and will guide you to the same spot as the grid reference

 

Please note, all our tasks and events are open to non-members unless it specifically states otherwise, although we do ask that anyone who tries our weekly tasks and decides to become a “regular” joins the Society. In particular when a task involves hedge laying we will limit attendance to the task to our regular volunteers. This country craft is popular and we need to be sure that our regular volunteers have sufficient opportunities to practice it.
