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.
Hope to see you on SUNDAY!
