Hampton Heath - Yarrow - 2023-11-25

Conservation volunteering and litter-picking

Saturday 16 December 2023
10:00 to 12:00

This weekend… SATURDAY Working Group

This week (depending on numbers and weather) we’ll be:

  • “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 - we’ll aim to tackle another puddle.

  • Wildflower re-introductions: Heather! Plants which we have been raised from local sources specifically for translocation, are ready for planting out…

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


WHEN: From 10am SATURDAY 16th December 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 SATURDAY!
