Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Join us for a hands-on, practical taster session outdoors, in nature, to learn the basics of path work in one of our local parks. We will be learning about the importance of making paths accessible for multiple users. We will learn about the different types of aggregates used public pathways and we will be doing some path repair work. Points about manual handling and use of different path repair tools will be covered too. Transport to the parks will be provided by minibus. You will need to be at the meeting point of Thornes Park Nursery at 9:45am please.

Please note, as these sessions are outdoors and you will be working with outdoor materials and tools, you will need to wear weather-appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, sturdy shoes and will need to bring a packed lunch and drinks with you to last you the day.

We will be providing you with work-boots for use during the activities so please ensure that you provide us with your shoe size upon booking. You will also need to ensure that you wear standard or thick socks on the day, not trainer/ankle socks.
