Today Jenny and I are working at Darby Green Pond litter picking and cutting back paths to open up access. It’s been a very successful day for our group of 11 volunteers with the students and local people, removing 3 m3 of rubbish with half of it going to be recycled. There was a competition on the most unusual litter, including a moped, bike, duvet and 7 chairs. A huge thank you to everyone for all their hard work: The woodland and pond look so much better.
Also Mike Swaddling from the BVC Trust and local Councillor Adrian Collett came for a chat, so we could discuss future countryside management ideas for Darby Green Pond. We’re next down at Darby Green Pond on at 10:15am on Tues 28th Feb when we’ll be removing the invasive plant parrot’s feather from the pond.
