Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) Conservation Schedule

FoTF Conservation meet every 3rd Sunday in a month, and the meeting point depends on the location of the work being undertaken. The group meet at 09:00, and generally finish at 13:00, but a mail is sent out the week prior to the meeting to confirm the details of the date, time, and starting point. Tools and safety gear are provided, as are refreshments, so all you need bring is yourself.

For insurance purposes, non members we ask for a donation of £1.00 to comply with the terms of the insurance, and that all attendees follow the instructions given at the health and Safety briefing before starting work.
