Dear Volunteers,

I hope you had a lovely weekend! I just wanted to catch up with you all with details for the next volunteer tasks. I am out of the office most of this week so please bear with me! As you can see from the above photograph I have been busy teaching local school children about the wonderful life cycle of the Salmon!

Slight change of plan regarding the task this week (due to the fact our supplier cannot deliver tree guards and tree stakes in time for Friday!)

Friday 31st March- Otterburn Mill- Planting Willow pegs. 10.30am (or TRT office at 9.40am)- We will be planting the bundles of willow we have along the river banks of the Rede where we have been planting our trees recently. This shouldn’t take too long. The willow we have is quite tall so we will half them and plant twice as many!
Tuesday 4th April- Otterburn Mill- Tree planting- 10.15am (or TRT office at 9.30am)- We have ordered some more tree guards and tree stakes to enable us to plant the trees left over from our last task here! The more help the better as those volunteers who have already been here will know there is a bit of carrying of materials involved!
Sunday 9th April- Derwenthaugh Park- Willow weaving etc- Meet at Winlaton Mill car park at 10am We will be finishing off jobs left over from our last task here such as willow weaving and back filling with brash.

Lets hope for lovely sunshine again like last week on the beautiful banks of the Rede! If you have spoken to me about a lift to task on any of the above days I will email you individually soon to confirm a meeting place. Please let me know if you intend to come along to any of the above, as always please bring along appropriate footwear, wellies if you have them and your lunch.

If anybody else would like to come along to our Kielder hatchery visit on Wed 26th April please let me know, there are still places left for this! I will also be organising a training day soon with our very own Geomorphologist, Professor Malcolm Newson, I think many of you will really enjoy this, he was thrilled to be asked! I will send more details about this later. Please let me know if you would be interested in coming so I have an idea of numbers.

I am on a training day with Malcolm myself for the next two days but I will respond to emails on an evening.

I am looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Best Wishes,
