17th July Work party

Our Sunday workparty for July (3rd Sunday every month) will be next weekend, July 17th. All are welcome at the Scout hut car park 10am…
Tasks may include re-instating the “Cuttlebrook Reserve” sign at the main entrance, removing cleavers and other growth from our recently laid hedge at Cox’s wood, cutting paths, nettles and overhanging branches, chemical and riverfly water sampling, and a butterfly survey.

Work-party this Sunday, meeting at 10am in the Scout hut car park.
The planned activities are:

Build a small earth ridge in the sedge bed, to reduce water flow under the path
Check the storm flaps and the netting on the dipping platform
Check and test the scythe-bar cutter
Carry out monthly water sampling and river-fly larva kick-sampling
Litter-pick before stuff gets too hidden by plant growth
Please bring good gloves, boots and spades if you can.
