What’s happening in Nore Barn Woods?

July 2017

The AGM of the Friends will be held at the picnic table on the foreshore on Saturday 8th July at 11am, after a shortened workday. All members are invited to join us for this short meeting, followed by light refreshments and open discussion.

After a dry May, recent rains have greened up the woods, with many plants flowering. The newly planted hedge is flourishing, with continuous weeding needed to encourage the saplings. Further work on the hedge will start in August/September.

The collapsed kissing gate is being repaired by Norse (in slow time!).

On the June workparty, 12 people cleared a large fallen tree and widened internal paths. They also created stag beetle habitat by burying some of the timber.

Future work days will be held on the following Saturdays 9:30 to 12:00 noon. All welcome. Meet at the shore end of Warblington Road. Please bring gardening gloves – everything else is provided (including refreshments!).
