Our next work party will take place on Saturday, March 30th 2019 between 10:00 am and 3:00pm. We will be working under the middle spans of the viaduct. These spans are heavily overgrown with hawthorn, bramble and other scrub species. We need to prepare these spans to promote biodiversity and to create the new footpath under the viaduct.
The scrub clearing tasks will include:
- Hawthorn removal,
- Scrub removal,
- Tree pruning and cutting back.
- The creation of some habitat piles.
- Removing roots.
- Cutting back bracken.
We will bring tools and protective gloves but if you have your own, please bring them.
If you arrive during the morning or afternoon, we will be working under the central spans so you will have to find us. Come for as long or as short as you can manage, it will be good to see you. The difference we are making under the viaduct is simply inspirational
The barrier on Newtons Lane will be open from 9:30 onwards so you can bring your car up to the viaduct. See Map Come for an hour, a morning or for the day. All welcome.
