We are seeking volunteers to help with clearance work at the BMC-owned and managed Harrison's Rocks on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th January 2020.

The work will consist of clearing the arisings from recent tree cutting by moving the trunks to habitat piles or where they are required for revetment work and lining footpaths with the brash. There will also be other work to do including cutting back Sycamore and other saplings that have re-grown in areas cut in previous years and any new or replacement revetment work as required. Consequently, there is plenty to be done and a good turnout would be very much appreciated.

When and Where?
Meet in the car park at Harrison’s at 09:30 on each day where there will be a full briefing explaining what work is to be done and where and a full safety briefing given by the Event Co-ordinator. The last part is important and if you join later please find the person in charge before starting any work.

Parking and Car Share
Parking is £4 a day at Harrison’s and it would help if you could share transport. The BMC will cover reasonable parking costs – please retain your ticket and let the person in charge on the day have them after the day’s work so that we can recover the costs.

What to bring
As in the past, if you have a bowsaw, loppers or pruners etc. please bring them along but there is plenty of work to be done that doesn’t require tools.

Please wear old clothes and boots, gardening gloves and waterproofs if it’s wet.
Please don’t wear your best ‘Arc’teryx’ gear!

Bring a packed lunch and a drink.

First Aid and Medical Conditions

We will have a qualified first aider on site both days but if you have first aid qualifications, please let the day’s event co-ordinator know.

If you have a medical condition that we should know of, please inform the Event Co-ordinator or the first aider before starting work.

Further Information and Confirmation of Attendance
Please email london.se.chair@thebmc.co.uk if you have any questions and to let us know if you are able to come on one or both days.
