Lots of maintenance work taking place in the Dickens Field over the last couple of days. We have been laying some weed suppressing membrane and mulch to give the tree saplings the best chance of survival in this hot weather.
All of the DFT trustees are volunteers who still have their day jobs, homes to run and some have families to look after. Any work that is needed in the field has to be fitted around this. More »
If anyone finds themselves at a loose end or has an hour spare, perhaps you are completing your D of E and need some volunteer hours?! Then please reach out to one of the committee. We would be very grateful for your help. » Less
