Work Parties

Work parties are organised by the Head Bailiff, or a nominated representative, from time to time on all TWAPS fisheries.

We welcome volunteers for work parties from the Membership. 

Please note that until further notice, work parties will be limited to a maximum of 6 volunteers to comply with the Government’s ‘Rule of Six’ rule during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The work usually involves pruning trees, opening up swims and pathways, reed cutting and other small jobs as deemed necessary.

Work parties normally last for approximately 4 hours, but volunteers may not be able to give that amount of time, which is fine.

Volunteers must wear suitable clothing, including footwear (boots rather than trainers) and provide their own gloves.  Arms and legs should be covered.

Tools and other protective equipment will be provided as necessary.

When work parties are announced, if, as a TWAPS Member, you wish to volunteer, please contact the Head Bailiff beforehand. Please do not turn up on the day without notifying the Head Bailiff first.

Upcoming Work Parties:

The next work party will be at Shorne Country Park on Sunday 16th May 2021, from 9am to 1pm. If you would like to attend and lend a hand, please text the Head Bailiff  by 7pm on Friday 14th May 2021.
