Working Open Day Announced

Join us on the 2nd September 2012 when we are holding a working open day on Flat Holm where you will be able to experience hands on island life by helping out for the day. The day will be rounded off with a BBQ and lots of fun and games.

The boat will leave Barrage South at 06:45. We will leave Flat Holm at 18:10.

The cost is £15 per person and includes the boat trip to the island and BBQ.

The day will give you hands on experience of what it is like to be a member of the society and will give you plenty of opportunity to meet other society members and the island staff and volunteers.  Previous years jobs have included: painting the fog horn station building, re-pointing walls, dry stone walling, vegetation clearance, building a chicken coup and other general DIY tasks. There will be a list of tasks suited to all levels of skills and ability and you can choose which one/s you feel like helping out with.  There will also be plenty of time to explore the island and take a guided tour.

Places are limited and are expected to fill up very quickly!!!!  If you would like to book please use our contact us form to let us know how many people you would like to reserve spaces for and we will send you details of how to pay.  Payment must be recieved by the 15th August to secure your place on the boat.
