CITO 2020, Season One
Attend a CITO from Sunday 1st March through to Sunday 31st May 2019 and get a souvenir
Parking: There will be parking near the Pentecostal/One church (see parking co-ordinates). It is only a very short walk from this point to the event. The church is popular and so you may find it easier to park in the main Robinswood car park (way pointed) and walk across.
Where: We will meet near the base of Robinswood Hill at the provided co-ordinates.
What: This will be the last session for bringing an old hazel copse back into rotation. Due to it being close to the nesting season the Countryside Rangers will have cut down the remaining large branches from our previous coppicing events. We will be harvesting any stakes and binders that we can from these off cuts for this years hedging works and then we will be burning the remainder.
How: The Countryside Ranger will be there providing guidance, gloves, saws and loppers. Please bring your own if you prefer.
Health and Safety: The session and will be covered by council insurance as long as you are working under the Countryside Ranger's instruction. They will introduce the session and do the health and safety brief prior to work commencing. Children are encourage to join in, they will however need to be supervised near the bonfire and in using any of the equipment.
