SUNDAY 17th OCTOBER AT 0945hrs

For October’s task, this Sunday, we will be carrying out some cutting back around a wildlife pond in Common Field, which is on the left hand side of Orchard Drive.

If you need to drive, the only nearby parking is on the left hand side of the road, as you enter “Field Bank” and the What3Words location for this point is;

This is where the GGP truck will be parked and I will meet you there at 0945.

At the moment, the pond is heavily shaded and so by cutting back and thinning a few of the smaller trees around the edges, it will greatly increase the light levels reaching the pond, thus making it much more attractive and accessible for a range of wildlife, encourage more plant cover around the margins and also create some dead wood habitat piles at the same time.
