6 sacks of assorted, mostly plastic, rubbish collected from the backwater by the Buffalo Field(aka Plovers Mead).

Path clearing. October 2017.

In response to a request from members of the public we cleared a route which had become blocked by brambles.

Work Party 15th March 2018.

This morning five Friends spent the morning collecting litter/rubbish from the woodland belt alongside the main road. We collected 6+ sacks plus a few odds and ends including a toaster. Most was plastic rubbish with crisp packets and plastic bottles figuring most highly.

It has been some time since this blog was updated so here are some of the activities undertaken on the third Thursday in each month. The Activity Area had become badly overgrown here is a before and after.
Here we are removing poisonous Ragwort from the dry meadow.
We dug out the old spring to reveal a brick-lined basin, presumably for cattle drinking.
This was a non-runner! We were asked to protect the young fir trees from cattle rubbing. Everything was provided but conifers have shallow roots and we simply could not put the posts in!
The sledging slope was getting encroached on by hawthorn scrub which we removed.
Here we are putting in the enclosure for Margaret's memorial tree and also erecting the bench.
