After the session on 24 August we agreed to re-arrange plans for the rest of this year, some changes to comply with SCC suggestions, and also to leave the step building until a little later when conditions for digging should be better.
The new improved programme is as below.

These 2024 tasks may include returns to Westhall, Framlingham and Leiston, but mostly new places.
Most tasks usually include some light hand clearing, if you want to bring your own secateurs etc.
We still have a few more new gloves from SCC and more new hi-vis waistcoats from Ramblers HQ, to be given out to anybody who has not attended at all this year so far.
A reminder that if anybody does require to use any tools or waymarking materials, they are now all stored at Paddy's in Benhall.
We are also happy to do any ad hoc work at short notice, when a few of us could get together and do any emergency work or repairs as necessary.
