The Task Team is made up of a number of dedicated volunteers that come from all walks of life and are committed to improving the valley and its surroundings for the benefit of all of todays users and future generations.
You dont have to be super-fit to join the team; we leave that to the many joggers that regularly use the nature trail. Each individual gives as much time and effort as they can afford. The age span of the group is from 16 to 80.
The group provides all of the tools and training if required and the groups insurance and liability covers all members. All we ask is that you turn up prompt with a stout pair of Wellingtons or boots and preferably a pair of gardening gloves.
The Team works on the last Sunday of each month meeting at 10.00am and concluding between 2.00 3.00pm although for the truly committed there is a smaller team that works in the valley on a more regular basis when and if the need occurs. Jobs undertaken by the team in the past vary largely from woodland clearance and maintenance to dam repair work and footpath construction including structures such as gates & stiles.
The team can count amongst its numbers civil and mechanical engineers, welders, joiners, Stonemasons, a public rights of way officer, students, housewives, a local friendly Farmer and a whole host of other jobs that make up a multi gender team that is starting to make a difference to the whole experience of walking the Rivelin.
If you wish to join this team and put something back into the Rivelin you can do so by contacting the Team co-ordinator.
The work of the Task Team is funded mainly through the groups fundraising activities and a small grant from the council. Anyone wishing to make a contribution to the work of the Team can do so by contacting the Chairman or the Membership secretary (Quoting Task Team donation) all money donated will go towards the Teams work within the valley.
