The weather held out for the working party in March and there was a good turnout. The team removed more of the laurels. This is an ongoing job but it’s one of those “a stitch in time saves nine.”
The next working party will be on Sunday 9th April. We shall focus on installing “No Cycling" signs at the kissing gate and on other paths that are used inappropriately.
North Somerset Council have continued with the coppicing on the slope below the dam. This has the dual advantage of preventing channelling and erosion in the event of the dam overtopping and encouraging the undergrowth herb layer to develop.
