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 itís surroundings for
the benefit of all of todayís users and future generations.
You donít have to be
super-fit to join the team; we leave that to the many joggers that
regularly use the nature trail. Each individual gives as much time and
effort as they can afford. The age span of the group is from 16 to 80.
The group provides all
of the tools and training if required and the groupís insurance and
liability covers all members. All we ask is that you turn up
prompt with a stout pair of Wellingtons or boots and preferably a pair
of gardening gloves.
The Team works on the
last Sunday of each month meeting at 10.00am and concluding between
2.00 Ė 3.00pm although for the truly committed there is a smaller team
that works in the valley on a more regular basis when and if the need
occurs. Jobs undertaken by the team in the past vary largely
from woodland clearance and maintenance to dam repair work and
footpath construction including structures such as gates & stiles.
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.
The work of the Task
Team is funded mainly through the groupís fundraising activities and a
small grant from the council. Anyone wishing to make a contribution to
the work of the Team can do so by contacting the Chairman or the
Membership secretary (Quoting Task Team donation) all money donated
will go towards the Teams work within the valley.
