Work Morning

Where: Meet at the Straw's Bridge Car Park
When: Saturday 12th March 2022

The aim on this day will be to tidy up the willow screen on the far side of the main pond. Since it was installed a few years back, the willow fence/hedge (fedge!) has thrived and provided shelter and privacy for the wildlife. Additionally, bat boxes will be checked with a licensed bat ecologist. If time/numbers permit, we may also litter pick around the site. All required tools will be provided, but please wear appropriate clothing and footwear appropriate to the conditions - it can get muddy!


We meet in the car park at 10am.



Next Meeting

The next meeting will take place at Legs Wine Bar, on Thursday 12th April at 7.30pm. Legs Wine bar is found at 24 South Street, Ilkeston, DE7 5QE. There is a council car park around the corner on Queen Street which is free after 6pm
