Team Tuesday

Tuesday, April 7th 2015

Volunteers have been hard at work again clearing a wildflower bank. Over the past few years this had become choked with saplings and Gorse suppressing the growth of flowers.

Clearing this area will allow light to once again reach the ground and encourage the ground flora to flourish.

Gorse was cut back and we pulled out Silver Birch saplings, if the roots are left in the ground they grow back more vigorously and become a harder problem to manage in the future.

We also worked in a small area of heathland alongside the path clearing invasive species found amongst the Heather. By the end of the day both areas were much improved and looking fantastic, it will be especially interesting to see how the cleared wildflower bank develops as spring progresses.

During the afternoon several of us spent time repairing potholes along the access track and filling in where stone has settled above the repaired drainage pipe.

Our thanks to everyone who has helped us today, many of the families visiting over the school holidays have commented on how brilliant and well looked after the reserve is; a direct result of everyone’s hard work and dedication.
