Saturday 8th February 9:30 - 13:00
Friday 13th March 9:30 - 13:00
The first volunteer days of 2020,
Tasks will be;
Continuing brush cutting invasive brambles.
Cutting of regrowth around the pond to maintain the open views.
Removal of bramble roots from cleared areas.
Thinning of trees in copses
Planting of grass and wildflower seed
Salisbury City Council Parks manager, Mostyn Coombes, has agreed that the areas we clear of bramble will then be maintained by council ground staff with strimmers to prevent regrowth. He has also offered us a refurbished bench to be sited with views of the river.
In January James will start carrying out some more thinning of trees in the over populated copses to enable those remaining to grow stronger and to prevent too much shading of the paths.
