3 Village Woodlands Group Newsletter Spring 2011


Now that winter seems to be at last relaxing its iron grip we are relaunching our activities for the coming year.

We plan to concentrate our energies this year on making progress in Kirton Churchyard woodland margins. After some bureaucratic hurdles the Church authorities have approved the removal of self seeded sycamores from the southern boundary. This will enable us to restore the southern hedgerow while the sycamores are yielding valuable material for path edging and other projects.

Working Parties

We held one last week and have two more scheduled:

  • Saturday April 2nd. 10.00 am to 12.00
  • Saturday April 9th. 10.00 am to 12.00

Please bring gloves, stout boots or shoes, saws and loppers if available.

Tasks:
  • helping the lumberjacks with trimming and removal of timber
  • weeding and mulching the hedge on the eastern boundary
  • completion of path in north wood
  • establishing paths in children's area
  • other jobs will evolve as the site develops

Annual General Meeting
The AGM will be held at 7.30 pm on Wednesday May 25th 2011 in the Recreation Ground Pavilion.

We shall be putting up bird and bat boxes in due course, probably next autumn. If anyone wishes to make some, or knows of a source of low cost, or sponsored wood for these please get in touch with me.

Enjoy the better weather!
