SUNDAY working group

Sunday 19 November 2023
10:00 to 12:00

This week again, we're switching to Sunday to avoid the rain. Depending on numbers, we’ll be active on the following:

  • “Mosaic” grass cutting: Continuing the cut, rake and remove process which will improve species diversity and promote precious “Lowland Acid Grassland” (LAG) habitat… the winter cut/remove means LESS fertile soil, which means MORE wildflowers and fungi.

  • Paths: David Lloyd / Staines Road Path - Review of last week’s efforts to tackle puddles… and possibly we’ll tackle another one.

  • Wildflower re-introductions: We may have Red Bartsia seed to sow this weekend, and I’ll bring some Mouse-Ear Hawkweed plants which have been raised for translocation here.

  • Litter-picking: Of course, we’ll be keeping up with the litter.


WHEN: From 10am SUNDAY 19th November until around midday. Over to David Lloyd for free tea/coffee or cold drinks at around 12.


WHERE: Meet at the goalpost, rear of David Lloyd as always.  Map


WHO: Anyone and everyone is welcome. As always, please bring some protective gloves, sensible footwear, drinking water etc. and under 18s must be accompanied.


WHAT: We provide litter-pickers/bags as always, and as many tools as fit in the barrow, but if you have secateurs, rake, strimmer or hedge-trimmer (battery), please do bring them along.


Don’t forget, you can subscribe to the Hampton Heath Friends calendar for up to date information in your Outlook or Calendar app. and we have further information on our website.


Hope to see you on SUNDAY!
