South Brent Steepers and woodfuel from hedges – 2019 season.

'South Brent Steepers' is a lively group of SSB volunteers who are in their eighth year of hedge laying and collecting wood for fuel. New members, young and old, beginners as well as those with previous experience are invited to join them for fresh air, exercise, new skills, informal cooperation, input from a hedge-laying expert and a share of the wood. They provide tools, other necessary equipment and a wood-processing machine to cut the logs and store them under cover. Lifts are available from the Station Car Park at 9.50am.

Steeping venues (from 10am to 3 or 4pm) for Autumn 2019 are:
