April Working Bee and Volunteer Thank You

07/04/2019 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

We will be holding another (and final) working bee at Middelmost on the 7th of April at 2pm. We would like to invite our wonderful volunteers from over the years to join us to farewell the site, and to say thank you for all of your fantastic work.

We’ll hold a working bee from 2- 3.30, and then have afternoon tea, provided by Working Waters Trust (with cake probably being involved).

If you can’t make the working bee,we’d still love to see you for afternoon tea!

Volunteers welcome to join us on the 7th of April. We’ll be weeding around native plants that have been planted around important spawning habitat that we have created for the threatened (Nationally Critical) Canterbury mudfish.

332 Island Rd, View Hill (West of Oxford)- Meet on the driveway to the farmhouse (or if you know where you are going – go straight to the side gate of the farm off Mounsey’s Rd)
