Volunteer Events Update from Rory Stewart, Volunteer Coordinator
With Scotland currently in 'Phase 3' of its Covid-19 response it is now possible for limited volunteer activities to resume, albeit with some special measures to safeguard and support staff, volunteers and the general public.
I have recently collaborated with Nathan Berrie (pictured above), from the John Muir Trust Ben Nevis team, to run a series of trial volunteer work parties with small groups of local volunteers. These have proved very successful and have provided an opportunity to get some 'local heroes' back out into the Glen and up the Ben, to help with vital work.
After consulting with Joy Biggin, Chair of Friends of Nevis Trustees, we are posting Friends of Nevis Volunteer Work Party dates onto the calendar for the 12th August, 5th September, 3rd October. These will be tackling core tasks such as bracken bashing, path maintenance and clearing litter.
There are some important features of the work parties to be aware of:
The Friends of Nevis AGM is scheduled for Friday October 30th. We have a guest speaker and venue provisionally booked.
It is very likely that the format of this year's event will be different than previous years so watch this space for more details.
Autumn Litter Pick
The 2020 Glen Nevis Autumn Litter Pick is scheduled for Sunday 22nd November. Details of arrangements will be available nearer the date.
