Tool Maintenance Session for the FLOW Project
September 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
FLOW (Fixing and Linking Our Wetlands) is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project to survey and improve the ditch network of the Manhood Peninsula, to prevent flooding and increase vital habitat for wildlife. FLOW works in the following parishes: Apuldram, Donnington, Earnley, East Wittering, Bracklesham, Hunston, North Mundham, Selsey, Sidlesham, West Wittering, West Itchenor and Birdham.
Before starting a season of habitat improvement work, we meet up with our volunteers to clean, sharpen and oil our tools. We will provide refreshments to enjoy while we chat and work, but please bring your own cups and cutlery (spoons) for your personal use. This work party will take place outdoors, socially distanced, and with tools carefully allocated. Gloves, lots of antibacterial spray, hand sanitiser, and wipes, will be available.
The site has some stinging nettles so covered shoes are recommended. Please bring warm clothing, and bring a fold up chair if you have one.
We really need your help with this work and appreciate any time you can give.
