The September session saw the volunteers clearing the southern tumulus. It’s important that plant roots do not get re-established on the burial mounds as this could damage it. English Heritage approval of both of the tumuli will help protect the woods from development.
During this time, the Nature Explorers cleared out the tool store and helped to fit a new metal door, much needed following the recent break-in. We would like to thank everyone who has offered donations of their spare garden tools. We still need more; if anyone has old gardening tools they no longer require and would be happy to donate then please get in contact (details below). It would be appreciated.
We’re keen to get more Nature Explorers at the moment - so if you’re 11-18 years old and have an interest in wildlife or conservation it would be great to see you at a meeting.
If you are celebrating the 5th November with a bonfire and its left unattended, please check for hedgehogs before lighting. Never use sharp objects (instead use a pole/broom to lift sections) as these can harm hidden hedgehogs. Listen out for hissing (the noise hedgehogs make when disturbed).
