There will be a workday with TCV (The Conservation Volunteers) and the Friends in the wood in Lordship Rec on Tuesday 20 September. We will as ever be dealing with dogwood but also beginning to replace boards along the side path and digging/clearing the mini-stream and pool. All welcome
We meet at the Downhills Park Gate entrance at 10am. Tools, tea and biscuits provided. Bring a packed lunch and wear suitable footwear.
We will be tidying up the little garden around the Downhills Shelter Memorial near the woodland and also doing some work in the woodland clearing paths of vegetation and creating sight lines through the bushes along the main path.
Hope you can make it. Bring your own gloves and secateurs if you have them but some will be available if not.
This very important document is the updated Plan for Lordship Rec, applying for the next 10 years, written collaboratively and agreed by the park’s user groups and by the Council. It explains all the features in the park, how they are to be maintained, and how they are being managed in partnership between the the various park community groups and the Council, coordinated overall through the Lordship Rec Users Forum. The range of user groups and their activities is also detailed, as are the current list of further improvements sought. There are some very useful appendices with further details.
On Tuesday 7th Feb and 28th Feb from 10:00am to 3:00pm we are having workshops in the Spinney, Lordship Rec, Adams Rd/Freedom Rd N17 to plant young trees into a hedge on the north side and to do some dead hedging and a little hedge laying.
BTCV are coming to give a hand.
Back 2 Earth will provide a lunch and hot drinks for volunteers.
It would be good to see you there. Do tell anyone else you know who would like to be involved.
