Works Diary for  October




October has been a month of cutting and clearing, after our annual grass cutting.


The wet weather during the month has not helped, but most things are going to plan.



In the Upper Reach this area has only been litter pick during the month.



In the Middle Reach work has started on clearing the north bank, and this area has also been litter picked.



In the Lower Reach the area has been completely cleared of the grass cuttings.  The north bank and areas on the south side have been hand cut and cleared.

We still have to complete the hand cutting on the eastern bank given suitable weather conditions. 

Additional Snakes Head Fritillary bulbs have been planted at the east end of this area.

This area has also been litter picked.



On the Dene Top all the grass cuttings have been removed from the car park. And the whole area has been litter picked.



2 bags of Litter were collected this month.
