Wilding pines update: 6000 down so far
Graham Leech at Afoot reports: We’ve had to rejig a few things with all the rain and some sickness in the camp. With Giles away in Europe and Maree unavailable too, we are going to reschedule the volunteer day that was planned for Saturday 27 August until a later date. We’ll be in touch.
Due to the recent resurgence in infections, the committee suggests that members wear masks at club meetings and while travelling in the van.
