Conservation Day 18th September

Well, yesterday was the only day for the Country Park in the list of six that HBC have been promoting recently on Facebook. There was just two of us that attended, hardly surprising from our existing group considering the 4 month gap and the lack of response by HBC to email enquiries that I have been told about but the flood of new volunteers that we were promised from using social media to promote volunteering has not materialised. I am told that currently there are no further dates in the pipeline for any of the sites in the Borough and given that I believe three of the days were cancelled due to various reasons and a low turn out for most of the others, I would not be surprised if no more dates were forthcoming. From a management point of view it must be difficult to justify tying up a ranger for the best part of a day for such small numbers of volunteers.
