Coppicing weekend

Dear all,

Tinkers' Bubble ecovillage, near Yeovil in Somerset, are holding their annual coppicing weekend on 19/20th February 2005. You can arrive on the Friday and leave after Sunday if you wish. 

If you haven't coppiced before don't worry, there will be instruction 
and supervision for novices. There's a fair amount of hard work involved but you can apply yourself to the task as little or as much 
as you feel able. Meals and accommodation will be provided.

Essential items to bring are tough gloves, boots/wellies and warm/
waterproof clothing (depending on the forecast - see below). Please 
also bring bedding, a torch, bowsaws, slashers, billhooks, loppers, 
hand axes, chocolate and wine, if you can.

If you'd like to come and for further information please contact 
anyone (except the children!) on 01935 881975.

You can track the mid-Somerset weather over the next couple of weeks 
48 hour
7 days
14 days

Hope to see you there ;-)
