Today the volunteers, Jenny and I headed down to Queen Elizabeth Park, just north of Farnborough Station. The park hosts some interesting mature beech and oak, and we pop back each year to tackle the invasive rhododendron and open up the woodland so it’s more welcoming to visitors. Today was no exception, as we worked along the main southern footpath which had become overgrown and quite closed in for walkers.
Unperturbed by the rain the volunteers cut back the path margins, working west along the path from the A325. The brash was then chipped and the path litter picked and blown. We also cut back around the street lights and cleaned the blue signs, by standing on an unearthed rusty trolley. It was hard work, but very satisfying in the afternoon when the sun came out and we could see the fantastic 150m that we had opened up. Thanks to everyone for all their hard work.
