With this as a mantra, the group have recently teamed up with The Peak District National Park Authority’s, Peak Parks Conservation Volunteers (PPCV) and arranged a working party of fit strong young men and women all willing to help. Unfortunately none of these were available so we went along instead!
All arrangements in place, packed lunches prepared, wellies polished, the sun shone on Saturday morning of the 14th May when around a dozen members of the club met with Dave Camp and his colleague Carol, from (PPCV) at Clough House Car Park, Wildboarclough.
Dave delivered the induction along with a few housekeeping procedures, including instruction on the correct end of a shovel to hold, for those of us who needed it (you know who you are!!). Tools were duly despatched, shovels, spades, pick axes, goggles, etc. and off we set, up, what we affectionately call “Cumberland Cottage”.
