Whether or not you are participating in the Raid please consider helping the LBT by helping get everything ready. If you can help, please come along to a planning meeting at the LBT next Monday (7 Jan) at 5pm. We need people who are prepared to take responsibility for getting a range of jobs done by taking charge, as well as people who can follow instructions and work under guidance. If you can’t make the meeting, don’t worry, we can still use you – look out for more announcements about particular working-bees or send an email offering assistance to the tn19 Raid Coordinator:
