On Friday we headed over to cut back an overgrown track and Blackwater Valley Path sections at the north end of Frimley Hatches. This task was prioritised to tackle the rise in the camping and littering that we have dealt with over the last few weeks, through reducing the sheltered areas and making it much more appealing to visitors.
The task went really well with Stu, Andrew, Charlotte and Jenny felling the willow by the promontory bench. Meanwhile Paul and students Matt and Jeremy helped us cut back and chip along the Blackwater Valley Path.
We also used some of the felled timber to construct a stag beetle stumpery in the shade of the poplar scrub.
I’m pleased to say that the north end of Frimley Hatches looks much improved for our visitors. Thank you to everyone for all their hard work.
