Selecting a Task

There are two ways you can select a task.

You can find a site of interest by looking at the map on the Sites page. If you click on the site name you will be taken to the site's entry on the Sites page. If the site interests you click on the Task Details button to find out about the tasks at that site. This will take you the Task Details entry for the site on the Programme page.

Alternatively you can find a date in the calendars you are interested in on the Programme page. If you click on the site name for the date you will be taken to the entry for the site on the Task Details page.

The Task Details entry for a site will show you the tasks to be carried out, if known, where to meet, who is leading the task and their phone number and the dates of the tasks. If you click on the site name in the Task Details it will take you to the site's entry on the Sites page.

Having decided on a task email us at info@wwcv.co.uk with your name and contact number and the task you wish to attend. This will be passed to the Task Leader so they can contact you if there any late change to the details or the task has had to be cancelled.

The next step is to come to the task!

 

Important Information about tasks

Timing

Most tasks start at 10.30 a.m. and run till around 3.30 p.m. depending on weather and progress with a break for lunch. You don't have to come for the full time, that is entirely up to you but please let the task leader know so they can make any necessary arrangements.

Health

We strongly recommend that you have up to date tetanus cover. If you have an ongoing health condition or require special medication please make this known to the task leader at the start of the task.

What to bring

We provide safety kit, tools, strong gloves and training. All you need to bring is a packed lunch, plenty to drink (tasks last all day) and plenty of enthusiasm!

Footwear

We recommend Wellington boots or safety boots (ideally with steel toe caps) for most tasks, and walking boots or safety boots for working on steep downland sites.

Transport

If you would need a lift, please contact the Task Leader who may be able to arrange transport. We can help with your transport costs, but you need to claim for this.

Age range

WWCV tasks are open to all, but those under 18 MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Insurance

Volunteers are covered by insurance.
