Busy bee!  I am glad you will be there for the Luton one, we are now working to a time limit!   I will be increasing the Luton work days soon, maybe arranging them for Saturdays if it suits people best.  I don't expect people to turn up every time but we are now working towards holding events at the fort and there is lots and lots to do!

Hope you walk goes well Cliveh

Anyone else interested?  We seem to have lost some of our volunteers along the way, I know some of our dates clash with other projects.

Sunday 7th September is our next work day.  Sorry for the late notice again but I have a lot on my plate at the moment.  The more the merrier if possible, I have missed having a nice sized group!

10.30-4pm and we will hopefully finish clearing the WWII emplacements and start clearing some of the bushes around the site.  There may be other things to do...
