Important Information as of November 2020 The FOD+AG November Deep Litter Collection scheduled for the 28th. is cancelled. Should the current lockdown, together with the more recent news of a possible start of a vaccination programme, prove effective I am considering a December DLC and would be pleased to hear what support this might have from members. In the past, as a result of the closeness of Christmas and New Year celebrations which generally involve a good deal of travel to family get-togethers, I have avoided a DLC in that month, but it might be that that this year the situation might not be significantly different from the current one and that an event would be well-supported. Please email Martin using the form belowso that he can gauge support. Meanwhile, if you are covered by personal insurance and as an individual are keen to clear an area close to your home, there appears to be no reason why you should not do so. Above all stay safe kind regards, Martin Regular Activities If you are interested in being involved when our activities resume please feel free to contact us for more details using the forms at the bottom of the page.
