Are you free on the morning of Sunday 23 September and able to do a bit of hard work to help local wildlife? We’re running our third annual 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 that breed on the meadow. If you can get involved please let us know (email us firstname.lastname@example.org) and meet on the A142 bridge across the river (just south of the station) at 09.30am. Wear long sleeves and trousers, and bring gloves.
