Hut Warden Rota

We have organised a Duty Rota for the Hut Warden job. This is an important job to keep Bullpot Farm and all its utilities running smoothly. The job takes a couple of hours and includes checking rodent traps, toilets, checking the water supply and other services etc. It needs to be done during the week (Mon-Fri) while people are hopefully not staying at the Farm. I will send out a reminder to the person involved on Sunday or Monday of each week with more detailed instructions. See list below:

If you would like to help please get in touch with me.
