A full range of tools (rakes, scythes, bow saws, professional strimmer and mower, etc.) are provided at work parties, so there is no need to bring any of your own tools along, unless of course you have a favourite bow saw, hay rake or the likes. However, it is advisable to have a pair of gloves with you! We are insured against any injuries.

Please read the BADCOG instructions for working safely. If you feel you do not have the required skills to use any of the tools supplied, our members are more than willing to pass on handy hints and tips about the best way to use the equipment.

Some work parties can be hard work, but we do encourage all volunteers to work at their own pace, undertaking as little or as much as they feel comfortable in doing. There is no pressure!

Some of our sites can be quite wet at times, so do come dressed accordingly, and bring a drink and a snack as there is always time to stop and chat with other members.

If you are interested in joining a work party and you would like more information, please contact one of our members. You can also find more details and news about our sites in our latest Newsletter.
