Cycle Ride to Burnby Hall, Pocklington – Sunday 17 June 2018

Meet at 11.00am outside the children’s play area in Intake Lane for our cycle ride to Burnby Hall Gardens in Pocklington, along a 26 mile cross-country round trip mainly along quite country roads.

We plan to have a picnic lunch at Burnby Hall at about 12.30pm, when you can meet us if you are coming by car, with light meals and refreshments also available at the Lilypad Café on site. We then have a chance to look round the magnificent displays of water lilies and other plants in the gardens, and to listen to the Swinton and District Excelsior Band from 2pm to 4pm. We plan to return home via a café tea stop in Stamford Bridge. Admission to the Gardens is £5 for Adults and £4.30 for Seniors, plus bring a packed lunch.



Conservation Work Party – Saturday 9th June 2018

Our next work party is on Saturday 9th June and we would be delighted to see any new volunteers. We meet at 10.00am at the Welcome to Hagg Wood  information board at the entrance to the wood. We work until 1.00pm with a break midway.

We will be working in the bomb crater area on Crater Track to clear brambles and brash around planted trees and hedging.

All the necessary tools are provided. Bring gloves if you can, and wear stout shoes or wellies.
