OUR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR EVENTS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  THIS INCLUDES OUR CONSERVATION WORK MORNINGS AS WELL.

 

OUR INDOOR MEETINGS are held in the Totley Library and start at 7.30pm. There will be publicity advertising these events in the local press, on the website, emailed out and on posters located at various sites around Totley and in the Wood. All are very welcome to come along and join us. If you would like to offer to help with these in any way, please do get in touch with the Secretary: fogwsecretary@gmail.com

 

We also have occasional GUIDED WALKS usually at the weekends which are advertised in the same way.

 

OUR CONSERVATION WORK MORNINGS are from 10am for 2 to 3 hours on the last Sunday of the month if the weather is okay. There is always a SCC Ranger there with appropriate tasks (light and heavy) and tools. We meet either at the Baslow Road bus terminus, the Scout Hut on Aldam Road, Totley or at the end of Totley Hall Lane. They are advertised on posters around Totley, in the local press and nearer the date are emailed out. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided. 

 

If you are interested in helping us carry out such work in Gillfield Wood with a Ranger from Sheffield City Council or have any questions, please contact fogwsecretary@gmail.com

  

We are also going to arrange a few mid-week Conservation Mornings where we will not have the help of a Council Ranger but will concentrate on tasks we can do independently. 

 

Meet at the Baslow Road bus terminus at 10.00am. Bring spade/shovel and rake if you have them/one.  And gloves and flask. We will probably finish around 11.30 but feel free to come and go to suit.
