Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows Work Party Thursday 30th August from 10:30

Sunday 30th August we’ll be deep in the Reservoir Basin (north of the site, south of the allotments track – Centre of the Flood Reservoir on this map) – Following Martin’s survey of the ponds on the site, of which a summary is available here, we have a couple of existing stagnant ponds of little wildlife value to clear out. If anyone would like a copy of the full 32 page PDF of the report please email us.

Volunteers are welcome for all or part of that period. Wellies and gloves are advisable, as it may be pretty boggy! If anyone can bring a spade with them that would also help.
