Conservation Volunteers: Reserve Maintenance @ Aston Rowant
Dec 16 all-day
Conservation Volunteers: Reserve Maintenance @ Aston Rowant | Stokenchurch | England | United Kingdom

Our final visit of the year to a favourite site on the cusp of the Chilterns managed by Natural England. It’s more likely than not that we’ll be working either in the woods or on the grassland slopes. Exact details of the day’s work will be posted in the weekly email, so make sure you’re on the OCV mailing list! Once again, we’re always looking for volunteers who might lead tasks, indeed without leaders we couldn’t keep going, so if you’re interested contact Phil Hunter via tasks@ocv.org.uk . An Aston Rowant task is a great way to start. You’ll be under the guidance of one of the reserve’s wardens – Mick or Stephanie. Any of our current leaders will be happy to help you get started by doubling up on a task to show you the ropes.

We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear.

Under-18s are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:

1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am

or meet us at the task site itself if you prefer (check website or OCV weekly email for exact location).

Broken Spoke Open Bike Workshop @ Oxford
Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand.

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!
