About the event

MWT Conservation Officer and Ramsey Forest Project Lead, Andree Dubbeldam, has 5 bags of crushed slate aggregate to build better paths around the Hairpin Woodland Park. However, he's not feeling too happy about shifting it all up onto the paths around Claughbane on his own. So, we are looking for a number of fit and able bodied volunteers to help shovel and wheelbarrow the material into place and then compact it down. We reckon it's a couple of hours work for a group of energetic types who like a bit of strength and conditioning training in the great outdoors!

If you can help, please email our Engagement Officer at to let us know so we can make sure there'll be enough cake. Yes, there will be cake too!
