► Working Parties ◄

Working parties are held twice monthly.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month for a session from 10 -12

We meet on the third Sunday of each month for a session from 10 - 2

Details of working parties are posted at the site entrances a few days before we meet, and also on our Facebook page (click on the button at the bottom of this page to go there)

The work we do is not hazardous but we publish a risk assessment statement for all sessions. We are not able at this time to use powered equipment but we are sometimes joined by Jason of the Ketley Parish Environmental team who uses a strimmer and on occasions brings his pick-up to remove materials.

Thanks to the generosity of Councillor Amrik Jhawar, FoKPM have a good collection of tools and equipment which are stored at Ketley Community Centre. Having said that, we're alway grateful to have donations of good strong tools such as saws, loppers, secateurs etc.  We do provide gloves and have chest waders for supervised work in the pools.

We have a dozen-or-so regular volunteers and typically half a dozen of them will turn up for a session. We have a wide range of activities: cutting-back is probably top of the list, but we also plant saplings, put up nesting boxes, litter-pick etc.

We operate very democratically and most decisions regarding jobs are down to a good old chinwag ! We are always respectful of wildlife and keep in regular touch with the specialist environmental officers at Telford & Wrekin Council.

New faces always welcome !!
