We're Nearly Finished! (Nearly...)

First of all, a big thank you to all who turned out last Saturday – we've got our compartment finished and it's looking good! This large area, from the pond up to Back Lane, has been cleared of Rhododendron ponticum and Cherry Laurel as per the photograph below taken by our chairman Steve Thompsett. The regrowth will soon be sprayed by Agrifactors and we can then continue with the replanting of native species later in the year; bluebells are already starting to push through and should be a sight to see in a few weeks time.
Although we’ve completed this section, it’s no time to sit on our 'cherry laurels' (sorry) and, with a few Saturdays in hand before we need to stop in time for the start of the bird nesting season, we propose moving our focus slightly south across the path and again working uphill from the pond.
If you can spare an hour or two, come and help us out  this coming Saturday 12th March 2022.
We will be working in teams of no more than six - bring your own tools (gloves essential), although we have loppers, rakes, and saws to loan out if required.
See you there - meet at the pond around 10:30 - follow the smoke!
