STOP PRESS 30th MARCH 2001

At the time of writing the Task Programme, we do not know exactly what the effects of Foot and Mouth will be or how long they will last. Please bear in mind that some of the tasks outlined may have to be cancelled and replaced with others which we are in the process of organising. This may extend into May or even June. And no, the "closedown" of the countryside does not mean a holiday for the staff, just a need to organise interesting and varied back-up tasks on urban fringe sites! Please make sure you phone before turning up and try to make a point of staying up to date with coming tasks when out on site. Thanks for your patience and continued commitment.   

HEALTH TIPS FOR MOLES

There are 3 diseases to be aware of if you are involved in practical conservation work – Tetanus, Weil’s and Lyme’s Disease. However, don’t panic, these are rarely encountered. The first two are easy to avoid with basic hygiene: wash your hands before eating and wash out any cut you get on site with plenty of water – we always have clean water available for this. Tetanus is very painful and (if not diagnosed early) sometimes fatal. However it is entirely preventable by making sure your immunisation is up to date. If in doubt, consult your doctor. Weil’s disease is carried by rats and is associated with stagnant or still water. This can be avoided by covering any old or new cut with a waterproof plaster before starting work on a pond, river or ditch and by consulting your doctor if you get an unseasonable cold or flu after working on one of these. Lyme’s disease is carried by ticks, which are often found in long vegetation, especially bracken. Symptons are flu like and a rash may appear at the site of the bite. To avoid this keep exposed skin to a minimum and check regularly for ticks. If in doubt consult your doctor.

In addition if you suffer from any illness, such as diabetes or epilepsy, then please let the staff know. This information will be kept in strictest confidence.
