Bramble Clearing on the Dunes
Bramble Clearing on the Dunes
Monday, 23rd January 2017

Last year on one of our regular winter work parties we cleared two areas of gorse which has become so rampant on the Nature Reserve.  The purpose of this action was to create some sheltered spaces for insects and particularly butterflies to thrive.
On Sunday 22nd January we targetted the brambles which had inevitably grown in the cleared areas, and which had thrived in the new light which we created for them.

We were pleased to welcome a record seventeen people, and unusually nearly all were members, who enthusiastically attacked the brambles and their roots, a great deal of good work was done to help create a balanced environment at the western end of our favourite beach and local nature reseve.

As ever the event was a social occasion with stories and banter being exchanged during the half time tea break, usually the highlight of the day.

Our thanks to everyone who came along and also to Jan Phillips who led the group in her own knowledgeable manner.

Look out on social media and also on our posters for the next event which will be in February. Details already posted are shown here.
