A few days ago some of you have noticed the posting by Plantlife trying to get people to appreciate the humble Dandelion.  In this recent sunny weather I took an opportunity to see what might be making use of any Dandelions in our wildflower bank beside the steps.  The...

Anyone walking the Coastal Path down from The Triangle last Sunday (7th April) would have seen a line of volunteers digging up some plants growing at the very edge of the path.  The plants being removed were thistles, mostly Welted Thistle, along with some Common (stin...

It was another blustery day yesterday with winds gusting to 40 mph and above, but we were lucky to avoid the occasional shower and had the benefit of spring sunshine.  With such a good turnout of volunteers we were able to quickly complete the appointed tasks.  A small...

This morning saw a further stage in the work in Crow Wood to improve the biodiversity of wild flowers and all the other life that depends on them.

We made good use of the sections of surplus fencing from the farms that Blair had managed to obtain, and a good few more trees are now protected from Roe Deer bucks stripping the bark as they “fray” the young trees to mark territory.  More wire will be needed to comple...

We had amazingly good weather and a good turnout of volunteers on Sunday 10th February for the fixing of the new Crow Wood signs and Information Board.

Signplus had prepared the holes where we wanted them, though there was a bit of extra work at the information board t...
