Ragwort removal

Are you free on the morning of Saturday 18th August and able to do a bit of hard work to help local wildlife? We’re organising a work party to assist a local farmer to clear ragwort from the flood meadow on the east side of the river. This will help him maintain cattle grazing there without the need for chemical weed control, and so benefit wading birds. This will be the 3rd year in a row LCPRE have helped clear the ragwort!

If you can get involved, please email lcpre@elywildspace.org.uk. We’ll meet on the A142 bridge over the river (just south of the station) at 10.30am. Wear long sleeves and trousers, and bring gloves, as ragwort is poisonous.
