Young people comments from school task

Last month classes 3 & 4 Finchampstead CE Primary School invaded Moor Green to help trim a laid hedge (see link to 13th March post). We are very grateful to the young people for their thank you letters. We’ve picked out some highlights.

“Thank you for showing us how to cut the hedge, or helping us if we needed help. Your helpers did a good job, Tony (Elston) helped us put rubbish or the hedge in the dead hedge, Laura & Denise helped with the wheelbarrow and Booie cut the bushes. We hope we can come again….” Harry

“I loved chopping the bramble bush because it was a naughty little bush but I managed to chop it!” Ayden

“We wished our trip could have been longer. It felt like 10 minutes! Wasn’t it funny when Stuart said, “Hi five!” and I had to jump” Lizzie

“My favourite part was wheeling the shopping trolley up and down the stony track and then putting it with all the other twigs, brambles and sticks. Thank you again for organising this spectacular morning out. I wish it could happen again” Hannah

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
