A few of us turned out today and burnt off a load of bramble on one of the banks. Mike from Butterfly Conservation dropped in and gave us some good advice about the reed-bed at the Potford’s Dam end.
Good news – I managed to get to the end of the greenway with the brush-cutter. This means that we now just need to walk down the path and cut back any obvious bits. We also spotted quite a few wild flowers growing in the cleared areas.
I positioned one of the picnic benches under the bridge and it looked pretty good.
It was really good to see a cyclist having a rest on the bench, when I looked down from where we were working on the bramble. This made me feel quite chuffed with our efforts.
The rest of our efforts on the next workdays have to be on the reed-bed and the bank down to it. This will be a fantastic asset to the greenway.
Thanks all who turned out today.
See you on the next one!
