Events on Saturday 4th Feb
A couple of exciting events on offer this Saturday.....
First up is bramble clearing in Ecclesall Woods with the aim of promoting the growth of bluebells and other woodland flowers. The idea behind this is to earn some brownie points with Sheffield City Council to make permissions easier with the added benefit of making the wood easier to run through.
A few people have volunteered so far but we need lots more to really make a difference. If you can spare an hour or two, please do try to come along. We are meeting 12.45pm at the Discovery Centre. If you arrive late we are clearing in the top bit of wood to the left of Whirlowdale Road. Equipment will be provided but if you have gardening gloves, bring them along and wear your most impenetrable clothing!
Please email Pauline if you can make it.
Bowden Housteads Night Orienteering
After all the bramble clearing you can pop along to Bowden Bousteads to get your fix of orienteering. There are 4 courses available to suit all abilities, including a free beginners' course for those who have never been night orienteering before. Starts are 17.45 to 18.45. Children are welcome but should be shadowed unless they are very experienced orienteers. Registration is in the Davy Sports Club and there will be refreshments, including a bar available.
