Abbots Pool Working Party March

Starts: 10 March 2024 10:00
Ends: 10 March 2024 12:00

Location: Abbots Pool Car Park

The working party’s aim is to keep this asset on our doorstep looking great.  We maintain the pool and surrounds by:

  • removing invasive species;
  • maintaining utilities within the pool area;
  • litter picking;
  • clearing leaves;
  • removing fallen trees from pathways;
  • rebuilding dead hedges; and
  • removing detritus from the cave and the cascade.

It’s a great way to do your bit for the community, get outside meet your neighbours, enjoy nature, coffee & chocolate biscuits and feel virtuous having done something good for the community.  If you want to know more email Jo Chiverton.
