Thank you to everyone that attended the July work morning, we had a great turnout despite the heatwave! Because of the unexpectedly warm temperatures we’ve been experiencing recently, the volunteers took a break from laying bark chippings- focussing instead on the removal of undergrowth and vegetation on the path running behind Deben Avenue. Because the gardens border the woods for the length of the road, the Fire Service has asked us to keep it clear for access in case of fire. In addition, the area also acts as a firebreak to protect the gardens. The old adage proved true once again as “many hands made light work” and the inflated numbers of volunteers were also able to make a start on clearing the southern tumulus - ensuring that the mound remains clear, in keeping with English Heritage guidelines.
N.B. Unfortunately, the group’s tool store has been broken into over the past month- so if you see any dumped tools, etc. in the woods or local area, please report this either to the police on 111 or to us via the contact details below.
