If you couldn’t make it to the first Taster Trip and still want to see how we roll, come along on Sunday 14th October for a great day of conservation work at Providence Plantation, a reserve in Long Ashton owned by the University and managed by us. If you came on the first Taster Trip, but enjoyed it so much that you can’t wait to do some more conservation, you’re welcome to come along again! This trip is open to non-members as well as members, so if you’re not sure if you want to join yet, this will be a great way to help you make up your mind, and wonderful day out with some great people.
If you would like to attend this trip, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 7pm on Wednesday 10th October.
On Sunday 7th February we will be returning to Leigh Woods to continue the tree felling in the Nightingale Valley with the National Trust. We will be out from about 10am to 4pm and likely head to the pub or Union afterwards.
If you would like a place on this trip please email Emily by 5pm on Thursday 4th. Last term’s trip to Leigh Woods was oversubscribed so if you missed out on that one and would like to this Sunday you will be guaranteed a place.
On Sunday 15th November we will be going to Leigh Woods to fell some trees. National Trust ranger Bill will be guiding us to clear the trees along a footpath. This will allow light to reach the forest floor creating a more diverse habitat. We will also make a bonfire from the wood we have cut. This is one of the best trips of the year as felling trees is very satisfying, plus we get to burn stuff!
We are expecting to be out from 10am to 4pm and the head to a pub afterwards. If you would like place on the trip please email Emily by 5pm Wednesday 11th November. (Please note that this trip is only open to members.)
On Saturday 17th October, 11am-4pm, we will be going on autumn trip to St Werburghs City Farm to help prepare their Boiling Wells site for their Apple Day event on the Sunday. It is a fun trip in a great part of Bristol with a variety of things to do including apple picking and tidying the paths. We will most likely head to the nearby pub, The Farm, afterwards.
To sign up please email Emily by 5pm Wednesday 14th October. You must be a member to attend this trip; membership can be bought on our Union page for only £5 for the year. Places may be limited so if the event becomes oversubscribed people will be picked at random to go.
From 10am to 2pm on Friday 12th June we will be providing some last minute help to Boiling Wells site of St Werburghs City Farm. They are holding their Summer Fair over the weekend for which we will do some scrub clearance and path maintenance. Also for those interested they are also asking for helpers at the fair itself, which will earn you a ticket, a drink and a meal voucher.
If you are interested in joining the trip please email our vice-president, Alex.
