Gateway to Care Taster Day

On a sunny September day a group of adults from Kirklees Gateway to Care came to visit Marsden Moor for a volunteering taster day. The day was split with two different tasks so that the group could see what different volunteering opportunities we have.

In the morning we joined in with the plant group and had a look at what they do each week on Fridays. The group then got stuck in to sowing cotton grass seeds in to pots, in the hope that they will grow and can be planted out on the moors.

In the afternoon we had a trip up to Wessenden to take some of the fencing down. After a steep climb up to the top, everyone then got stuck in, helping to pull out posts and roll up wire, while also trying not to fall down any holes
