Change to Volunteer Task tomorrow

The volunteer task tomorrow 21st June, has been changed.  Currently the river is too high at Hawley to pick balsam so we are relocating to Wellesley Woodlands in Aldershot.  Today we’ve had a very large oak tree fall across one of the roads near the Wellington statue which we need a lot of hands to help us clear up.  We will also be cutting back paths around the area and installing a sign.  Please see the link below for the location of the Wellington Statue car park if you wish to drive direct rather than meet at Farnborough Gate.  There is no direct access from the A325, so please come in from the Bourley Road side.

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’.
