18th July 2017 Southern Water Volunteers Day

North Bank Willow Clearance 18-07-17

Southern Water Volunteers 18-07-17

Southern Water Volunteers day – a team from Southern Water helped at our Tuesday Work Session.

The Friends are very grateful to a team of Southern Water volunteers who turned up to assist some of our regular volunteers on a project to start clearing Willow from the waterside edge on North Bank opposite the viewing area. We are increasing the open waterside edge areas to benefit wetland birds and to improve the vegetation. The team worked hard and did an excellent job. A noticeable impact has been made already – bearing in mind that all the cutting was done with hand tools. Further work will be carried out by our regular volunteers in the next few weeks to complete the cutting and clearing tasks. Thank you again to the Southern Water Volunteers.
