Action Day - 9th March

Saturday 09 March 2024
10:00 to 12:00

The weather prevented too much progress last week, so the task-list remains the same as last week. If we have anyone willing and able on the strimmer and rakes, the fourth bullet is an urgent one! There is no bramble in the area, so should be straightforward.


This week (depending on numbers) we can look at:

  • Grassland mosaic cutting: We’re really close to achieving our goal to cut, rake and remove 50% of our precious “Lowland Acid Grassland” (LAG) habitat.

  • Bramble Reduction: Continuing to open up visibility along the Tennis Court Path towards David Lloyd.

  • Litter-picking: As always!

  • Practice Range Pond - Grassland: Strim, rake and remove the grassland we reclaimed from the mowers behind the Golf Practice Range Pond. Strim cut needs to be as low as possible. Those who were working around the pond last year will know the area… but access needs care/ consideration -  to get to/from the pond area means passing the practice range which is likely to be in use. And of course, the banks down to the pond itself is a water-safety issue.


WHEN: From 10am SATURDAY 9th MARCH until around midday. Over to David Lloyd for free tea/coffee at around 12.


WHERE: Meet at the goal post, rear of David Lloyd as usual.  Map


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


WHAT: We can provide litter-pickers/bags, hedge trimmer, strimmer, rakes and brush cutter as always, and MG is kindly bringing the tools to site. If you have your own secateurs, rake, strimmer or hedge-trimmer (battery), please do bring them along.
