Our next FoBBP Work Party event will be on Saturday 9th September from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
We will be raking the meadow area in Stoke Park Wood and creating habitat piles with the cut vegetation. This work is vital to increase the diversity of wild flowers and works by reducing the nutrient content in the soil which otherwise tends to just become an overgrown thatch of nettles and brambles. The piles of cut material make good warm and safe homes for insects, small mammals and reptiles.
Meet 10:00 am in the Bourne Park car park off Stoke Park Drive. Bring your old clothes, sturdy old boots and personal gloves. All the necessary tools, spare gloves and equipment plus refreshments of tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided
