Conservation Work Party – Friday 4th October 2019

Our next work party is on Friday 4th October 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 with brush cutters and hand tools to cut back brambles in the Bluebell area to enable the bluebells to thrive in the springtime. All the necessary tools are provided. Bring gloves if you can, and wear stout shoes or wellies.

Cycle Ride to Selby Abbey – Friday 20th September 2019

Selby Abbey is this year celebrating its 950th anniversary since its foundation in 1069, and this is a chance for an Autumnal cycle ride to visit it.  We will take a cross-country route, including passing the heavenly planetary bodies along the Solar System cycle path between York and Selby.

We will meet outside the Children’s Play Area on Intake Lane at 10.00am for a round trip of some 32 miles.  There are several nice cafes in Selby to choose from for our lunch stop, including one at the Abbey itself. If both you and your bike are in good condition, join us if you can for what should be a very enjoyable ride.
