Programme

another rustic bench

Yet another of our famous rustic benches is installed. This is at Southwater CP

Our programme

Planned work sites and tasks until the end of the quarter are shown here. The programme is renewed before the beginning of the next quarter.

As you will see, it offers various useful tasks, over several different sites. The size and scope of the tasks on Thursday reflects the lower number of people expected to attend.

It is always a good idea to check the website as work sites may be changed due to poor weather or work requirements.

Note:

# If the work site is at Chesworth, Owlbeech, Leechpool, Southwater CP or Warnham LNR, please see this page for details of the meeting point.
# We leave the meeting point at 10 am – and aim to finish work by 1.0 pm

Warnham Butterfly Project

TUESDAY - Exact task details are still to come but we will be lending a hand on this piece if land on the edge of Warnham Village that is maintained with butterfly conservation in mind.

Meeting point: Tilletts Lane, Warnham, RH12 3RD. Parking is tight so please be mindful.

Holiday Holly Hacking

THURSDAY - Deep in the Holly thicket creating some clearings, this will allow more light to reach the woodland floor in the spring, hopefully creating some nice patches of spring flowers. This has been working nicely in other areas of the woodland.

Take home as much of the Holly as you like to decorate your homes for the festive season. Its’ organic and free range!

Meeting point: in the car park off Harwood Road. Postcode is RH13 6SG (not exact); the OS map ref is TQ193 313

Heathland Restoration (Birch Pulling)

TUESDAY - We will be continuing thinning out the self-seeded Birch saplings that are crowding out the more delicate heathland-specialist plants. In the past few years we have undertaken a lot of total clearance of Birch within the enclosed areas of the heathland and now we will be turning our hands to thinning out thick areas to create a “Wooded Heath” habitat. This provides plenty of cover for a wide variety of animal life and a varying height and age of trees and shrubs.

Meeting point: at Owlbeech Way car park near the play area. Postcode is RH13 6AW (not exact); the OS map ref is TQ199 317


20 December 2018 10:00 at Chesworth Farm
Platt Pond Merriment in the Reeds

THURSDAY - It’s that time of year again – Ryan will be sporting his traditional Christmas jumper and waders and giving out mince pies to those on Matthew’s nice list. As a side note we will be clearing a section of reeds around the pond to maintain some open areas of water.
