Deep Clean and Native Reintroductions

Saturday 11 February 2023
10:00 to 12:00

We’re back, continuing the “deep clean”... in the Staines Road end of the site, and cutting back the brambles from the paths.

I will also bring the first batch of native heathland plants which we are reintroducing - including Bell Heather (Erica cinerea) and Heather/Ling (Calluna vulgaris).

We will plant this batch, geo-locate them using “What3words” and scatter some (locally collected) seed in the same area. Over the coming years, with small-scale reintroductions and management, we’ll try and restore this fragment of the original, massive Hounslow Heath.

WHEN:  10am Saturday (11th February)

WHERE:  Meet at the goalpost, rear of David Lloyd as usual - over to David Lloyd for tea/coffee after

WHO:  Anyone and everyone. As always, please bring some protective gloves, sensible footwear, drinking water etc. and children must be accompanied.

WHAT:  We provide the litter-pickers/bags as always, and I will bring as many tools as I can, but if you have your own secateurs, loppers, mattock or hedge trimmer (battery), please do bring them along.

Hope to see you there!
