We hope you have had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! BUCG will be starting off 2016 with it annual residential trip to Alfrick in Worcestershire on the weekend of the 30th and 31st January. We will be working on the Ravenshill Woodland Reserve, which is run by the lovely Trevor and Annette, and staying at the Village Hall (always a hilarious evening, likely filled with fun and games such as dodgeball, sardines and Werewolf). We’ve been visiting Alfrick for many years and it’s definitely one of the highlights of the conservation calendar.
The cost of the trip is £15, which is subsidised by the society and includes travel, accommodation, breakfast, lunch and snacks. We will be going out to the pub for dinner on Saturday night so remember to bring additional money for that.
If you would like to go please email Emily by 5pm on Friday 15th January. We will be hiring a minibus for this trip but the more the merrier so if you could drive to provide us with additional transport please contact Emily (BUCG will of course cover the cost of fuel).
Update: We enjoyed fine weather, Annette’s amazing home-made food for lunch and fun and games in the Village hall at night. The first day was mostly brush clearance while the second day we were coppicing and felling trees. Definitely the best trip of the year so far.
On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th November we will be going on our annual residential trip to Alfrick, a village near the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire. We will be working on Ravenshill Woodland Reserve run by Trevor and Annette. BUCG has been visiting this reserve for many years and is definitely on of the best trips each year. Typical tasks are scrub clearance, path maintenance, coppicing and tree felling.
We will travel there by car and minibus on Saturday morning. We will stay overnight in the village hall with dinner at a local pub beforehand and then return to Bristol on the Sunday afternoon. Please email Jess with you choice of dinner from the pub menu which can be found here.
The price for the trip is £15 which includes travel, accommodation, breakfast and refreshments – definitely well worth it! Since the trip tends to be very popular it may be the case that there is not enough room for everyone to go. In that case Jess will pick people at random from a hat. Email Jess if you would like to go on what is sure to be a great trip.
