Volunteering in the Great Yorkshire Forest

Brushing up on our skills

Leave a comment

We had a work task organised for Sunday 21st January but with the Ellerburn trail still under snow and more forecast at Sunday lunchtime, the decision was taken to cancel the task. However we had in any case arranged the first of our Manual handling training courses and so 8 of us attended that in the morning instead, along with some members of Singletraction. We brushed up on the good lifting and carrying techniques we should all be employing given that we can’t totally avoid lifting or moving things (or wheel-barrowing, or shovelling, or pushing, or pulling, or bending and reaching) as a forest volunteer!

All FoDF active volunteers will have to do the course eventually so watch this space for further training days.

 

Lifting and shifting at the maze – but in warmer times!
