Our usual second Saturday in the month work party event planned for Saturday 12th November has been cancelled.
Instead we have joined forces with Greenways and Ipswich Wildlife Group for the annual Greenway’s Megabash event being held on Sunday 20th November between 10:00 am and 3:30 pm.
The current plans are, if the weather stays dry’ish between now and the 20th, to split the work parties between coppicing in Spring Wood and clearing the invasive willow scrub in Bobbits Lane Meadows. The waste wood will be used to build an otter holt and supply the bonfire for the spuds! Details for the event can be obtained from the Greenways Project (01473 433995 or 07736 826076). Meet at the Kiln Meadow entrance off Bobbits Lane (on the right as you drive towards Bobbits Lane car park). The bollards will opened to allow parking just inside.
As usual bring your old clothes, sturdy old boots and personal gloves but this time you will need to bring something to eat for lunch. In addition baked potatoes will be cooked in an open fire at the end of the day to thank everyone for their efforts. All the necessary tools and equipment plus refreshments of tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided
