May - August, 2022

Sunday 8th May — TASK — Beningbrough Hall

Our first visit of the year to this property, where we may be working in the gardens or in the parkland. There is sure to be plenty of work to do, usually including some lighter jobs. Whilst you’re there, take the chance to look at the woodland gardens where we helped to plant many bulbs and made the paths. Contact Geoff and Margaret if you’d like join us.

Sunday 22nd May — WALK

Ann has kindly offered to lead a walk to celebrate the spring season. At the time of writing the venue is to be confirmed, as the originally intended route has suffered a fallen tree across a bridge and may still be impassable. Whatever the final route, it will be about 6 – 7 miles in length. Ann will confirm the details by email nearer to the date, but to put your name down in advance, please contact her.

Sunday 12th June — TASK — Hardcastle Crags

The first of two visits in this programme to this woodland property, glorious in full leaf. Summer tasks here often involve bracken or balsam-bashing in the clearings or by the becks. To come along and find out which (or, indeed, something else entirely) contact Sylvia.

Sunday 26th June — TASK — Brimham Rocks

An early summer task at this popular property, which we more often visit in the winter months. We don’t expect frost this time, but the rocks will be there, and the views of Nidderdale to inspire our efforts. Join us to find out what type of work is needed at this time of year – contact Pete.

Sunday 3rd July, 2pm start — ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING — Stephen and Anne’s garden, Copt Hewick, nr Ripon.

A brief business event (our first since 2019 due to Covid) which all members are welcome to attend. An opportunity to reflect on the previous year(s), plan the next year and have your say on how we run the group. The group reaches its 40th anniversary in November 2023, so please come with some ideas on how we can celebrate this significant achievement.

Sunday 3rd July, 3pm — GARDEN PARTY

After the business is finished, Stephen and Anne have kindly offered to let us have the run of their new garden for a traditional English garden party, hopefully accompanied by some traditional English summer sun. Please bring something for the communal tea – cold savouries and cakes are the order of the day here. Contact Stephen and Anne if you intend to come to the AGM, Garden Party or both and to get directions to their house.

Sunday 10th July — TASK — East Riddlesden Hall

This is our smallest property in size, but always has a wide range of tasks needing to be tackled; balsam bashing often features at this time of year or it may be raking the hay off the bank. Please contact Helen to join us.

Sunday 24th July — TASK — Hardcastle Crags

Our second visit to our only true woodland property. It is quite likely – although by no means guaranteed – that we will be continuing with bracken or balsam bashing started in June. To come along and find out contact Sylvia.

Saturday 20th August — DAY OUT AT THE SEASIDE — Filey

Join us for a fun-filled day of sun, sea, sand and fresh air (maybe fish and chips and ice cream too). Claimed to be one of the finest in the UK, Filey Beach offers six miles of sand stretching from Filey Brigg in the north to Bempton Cliffs in the south, both of which are great for bracing cliff-top walks. Hopefully, the weather will provide the sun – Filey has the rest. Contact Pete if you want to come along, and to find out where to meet.

Next programme is due out in August
