Ragwort clearance on the flood meadow

Are you free on the morning of Saturday 13th August and able to do a bit of hard work to help local wildlife? We’re organising a work party to clear ragwort from the flood meadow on the east side of the river. This will help maintain cattle grazing there without the need for chemical weed control, and so benefit wading birds. If you can get involved please let us know (email us lcpre@elywildspace.org.uk) and meet on the A142 bridge over the river (just south of the station) at 10.30am. Wear long sleeves and trousers, and bring gloves.
