The Annual Bio Blitz will be on Saturday 17th August from 10:00am – 3:00pm, and the Annual Moth Night is still to be arranged.


Compared to last year the weather has been on our side this month, and we have been able to complete most of our planned work.


This month we have had a team from EE Telecommunications who have helped out on clearing the edges of the approach road and laying wood chippings on the natural walkways at the west end of the dene top.




WILD FLOWERS and BULBS


Thanks to the award from the Postcode Lottery we have planted Bluebells, Snowdrops and Winter Aconite along the eastern bank and on the southern bank down from the scout hut.


Wild flower seeds will be sown during March.


Spring flowers are well in bloom, and can be seen in most parts of the dene.
