Busy Weekend

This weekend ahead (18/19Feb) is the first Trustees Working Weekend of the year out at The Exmoor Centre. These occasions are very informal and act as an Open Day so anyone drop by to see whats out at The Centre and have a cuppa by the river. 

We have a list of jobs to complete over the weekend, these range from plumbing jobs to weeding.We also need to build a new enclosure for our now rarely used generator to free up some space in the drying area at the rear of the building.

One of the jobs I am hoping to get done is to build some bird boxes and maybe an Owl box. We have acquired a lot of salvaged timber to make these and downloaded some plans. Long-term we want to install cameras into the bird boxes for visitors to the centre to be able to log into with their laptops.

Come and join us if you at a loose end this weekend, we are at SS736 458 a few miles south of Lynton. Walk to the Centre from Hillsford Bridge, Stock Common or Dry Bridge Car Park on the B3223. Cheriton is the nearest tarmac to be dropped off but there is very limited parking there. You cannot drive to the centre but we will be running a shuttle out at 10am and back at 4pm from Hillsford Bridge by Land Rover.
Campfire area to be cleaned up

Fences to be checked over.
