Friends of Ruswarp working party – 3rd April

We will be holding a working party on Wednesday 3rd April on site, starting at 2pm for an hour or so. It would be great to have help with painting concrete, small maintenance jobs on the equipment or managing the planting.

Let us know if you are able to join us by emailing or phoning 07410 549833, in case we need to change plans due to weather.
