On November 17th, 30 people rolled up their sleeves and constructed a new section of the Jack-Ash Trail as it heads towards Griffin Lane. Great fun, highly satisfying and everyone voted to complete this section of the trail at the December work party.

So come and join us completing this section of the trail! For those of you who did not make the last work party, this will be a great opportunity to learn new trail building skills, see a trail take shape and know you played a role in the process.

For the hardy crew who came out in November, we would love to have your wonderful help again! We will have home-baked trail treats and a great lunch for you.
