WENHASTON COMMONS GROUP WORKING PARTY PROGRAMME 2021
Welcome to the new season. Below is the programme of activity for the coming year and we hope very much that you will be able to spare some time to help with the variety of jobs we have planned to maintain and improve our rare lowland heath commons.
All working parties have a team leader to supervise tasks and run between 10 a.m. and 12 noon on the specified days. Everyone is welcome and the amount of work you do is up to you. Tools and safety equipment are provided as is advice on health and safety issues.
We will be continuing our joint working on Blackheath with Suffolk Wildlife Trust, maintaining the areas of heather and acid grassland, and removing some areas of gorse to create firebreaks. Work on the other commons continues, and we will also be carrying out surveys of birds, butterflies and reptiles so there is plenty of opportunity for involvement whatever your interest.
Working parties are sociable and provide an opportunity to experience hands-on countryside management. Refreshments are usually provided but it is advisable to bring water.
If you would like any further information please contact one of the working party leaders below or our President - Heather Phillips on 01502 478545.
