Dear Friends of the Byes
We have now finished our portion of helping the SVA with The Million Bulb Project, although there are still many other bulb planting events with other groups across the valley, together with a big day of Planting on the 26th October on Peak Hill.

If you would prefer to take charge of a particular task, please feel free, just let myself or Sally know. Also feel free to do any of the tasks outside our set volunteer dates when it suits you, again just let one of us know
Have we a willing volunteer that is competent in using a strimmer or a scythe to clear the grass in-between the young trees we planted in Sid Meadow last year? For more info please email FOTByes@gmail.com or phone Sally Atkinson on 01395 577383
All Friends of The Byes volunteer their time freely, but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Would you be able to spare a few hours a month helping with some of the admin work? If so please email FOTByes@gmail.com or phone Sally Atkinson on 01395 577383
Here are our volunteer dates for the rest of October and November.
