Important information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to the Coronavirus, many of our activities and meetings have been cancelled or postponed.

Many of you have been carrying out necessary and very welcome tasks in the Porter Valley in groups of one or two people.  Whilst many Council staff are furloughed, these activities provide a safe and invaluable service. Friends of Porter Valley must state that these activities are not officially sanctioned by Friends of Porter Valley. 
However, these activities are welcome while they comply with the rules of social distancing, group size and other government rules of the lockdown. While people are out taking exercise many are carrying out useful tasks such as clearing hazards and litter picking. Volunteers should retain their personal issue high viz jackets.  
Meanwhile enjoy the permitted recreation opportunities outdoors in the Porter Valley parks.

Please keep an eye on our calendar below for any updates for specific meetings
