Come and join us
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 today’s users and future generations.
You don’t have to be super-fit to join the team; we leave that to the many joggers that regularly use the nature trail. All we ask is that you turn up at the place and time agreed and then give as much time as you can afford.
The group provides personal safety protection, tools and training where required and carries the required insurance. Please come dressed appropriately for working in an often wet and sludgy valley wearing a stout pair of Wellingtons or boots and preferably a pair of gardening gloves..
The Team usually meets on the last Sunday of each month meeting at 10.00am and concluding between 2.00 to 3.00pm. We sometimes organise midweek events with a smaller team and occasionally invite other groups to work with us. Jobs undertaken by the team vary from woodland clearance and maintenance to dam repair work and footpath construction including structures such as gates & stiles. Usually there is a job to suit most volunteers.
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 group’s fundraising activities and small grants. Anyone wishing to make a contribution to the work of the Team can do so by contacting the Chairman or Treasurer (Quoting Task Team donation). All money donated will go towards the Teams work within the valley.
Any damage or vandalism within the valley, which you think the group, may be able to help with, contact us through the above link.
