Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th – NO TASKS TBC!!!

Unfortunately due to staff availability there will be no tasks running this week. This may change nearer the time and you will be informed if this is the case.

 

 

If there are any updates or changes with the programme we will update it regularly on the volunteer page on our website (www.nwkcp.org ). We will also contact the regular volunteers by phone if any last minute changes to the location of the task happen.

 

Please remember to bring with you suitable clothes for the weather conditions, a packed lunch and suitable footwear (we insist working boots with steel toecap and mid sole are worn at all times to comply with health and safety and insurance considerations). We will supply all other equipment, gloves and safety equipment and also hot drinks and biscuits throughout the day.

 

Each project will be led by a NWKCP member of staff who will be more than happy to answer any questions that you have throughout the day. A health and safety talk will also be given at the beginning of each project. If you are planning to come out on a project for the first time this month then please let us know beforehand which day that will be.

 

We write a risk assessment for each task day, and a copy of this will be brought to the site and available for you to read if you wish.
