  • 07-12-21 10:00 - 07-12-21 15:00

    Tasks: natural flood management - leaky dam installation

    Timing: 10am - 3pm

     

    The main activity of the day will involve building leaky dams of different sizes made out of timber from the woods that are fixed into position across streams. The dams help to slow down flood flows as water levels rise during heavy rainfall. Activities will include digging, sawing, post bashing, moving logs into position and fixing them in place. It’s quite physical work but we have lifting aids to help share the load and will have plenty of breaks and biscuits to help keep energy levels up! Long sleeves, trousers and waterproofs are recommended. All other equipment will be provided.

     

    There are a limited number of spaces available so you will need to book on to sessions in advance.

  • 11-01-22 10:00 - 11-01-22 13:00

    Join Don Catchment Rivers Trust for a volunteer day on the Rother catchment. 

    Tasks include: Habitat creation by tree hinging (hedge laying trees into the river channel)

    To compliment the large woody debris we installed here last year we will be doing some smaller improvements to the river by essentially hedgelaying marginal trees into the channel to create cover for young fish. Volunteers will need to wear waders and enter the river channel for this task. We will be using small pruning saws to cut the trees. We will provide full equipement and training on the day - no experience is necessary. 

    Timings: 10am – 1pm (break 11.30am)

    There are a limited number of places for this day, please book in advance on using event brite this link - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/somersall-park-volunteer-day-fishery-tickets-211589930177
