Next Meeting: Thurs 6 Sept, 7.30pm
Roughlee Village Centre — Get directions →
Come along to our next informal meeting of the FRIENDS OF ROUGHLEE APPEARANCE (FORA).
A group of residents that has been formed to do an odd job or two, augmenting the work that is already done by the village gardener and lengths man.
The idea is to bring local people together to do their bit for our village’s appearance, with the aim of winning the Best Kept Village Competition.
During the summer months, we’re arranging regular sessions for ‘Balsam Bashing’ – our next one is scheduled for Sunday 5th August as well as a weed and litter pick. Please meet opposite Roughlee School at 10am. Please can you bring your own black bags and gloves, also if you intend to pull out the Balsam then suggest long sleeves and trousers.

Thanks to everyone for attending and also for agreeing to help with various tasks. New volunteers are very welcome and can either attend the next meeting or contact Nigel direct by email ([email protected]) or phone (01282 693329).
