Do you have DIY skills? Can you help us on Sunday 12th May?

Raising the roof on the outdoor kitchen. Sunday 12th May 10.30am-1.30pm. We need your help to repair the roof of our outdoor kitchen which got damaged in the winter so that we can run more outdoor cooking events this summer.

We also need to finish putting up the guttering for water harvesting on the outdoor kitchen. If you are handy with a drill, a good DIY person then please come and help and the more the merrier and you are welcome to bring the rest of your family to enjoy the Wilderness. We do have some tools but if you have a battery powered drill or a few screwdrivers then please bring them along.
