To finalise the work we did in May we are carrying 1,000 wooden pegs up onto the hill to peg in the last reaming bags of wool, I imagine it will not take too long, an hour maximum, but obviously this depends on the number of people who come along. My recent ‘open studio’ event may have encouraged some new volunteers which is brilliant.
It is imperative that you all know that whatever the weather it is always cold on the top! With current weather conditions it is also very exposed and therefore the sun can be dangerous. Please bring suitable clothing for all weather and wear appropriate footwear for a fairly steep walk on mostly grass but some stony ground. Also you will need to bring your own food and drink for a 4 hour outing.
Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and we will have another exciting day with no mishaps. I have alerted the BBNPA wardens and mountain rescue as to our plans and carried out a risk assessment but ultimately it is up to everyone to be responsible so we can all have a happy and successful few days.
Please let me know if you need more information.
