Giving Brookfield the barber shop treatment.

Happy Friday everyone !

As the title suggests we gave Brookfield a short back and sides which we noticed needed doing after responding to a comment regarding a fallen willow tree. The paths connectivity to lakeside has now improved for pedestrians, cyclists and joggers.

Paul showed me how it was done with the hedge cutter and now I feel like I have arms like Popeye trying to keep up with him ! However I was in my element with the leaf blower !

Once we finished we noticed this little chap giving us his feedback, thanks Robin !


If your wondering what to do this weekend why not have a walk to admire our work, a passing jogger certainly approved. If your feeling a little more adventurous there is a task on Sunday at Moor Green Lakes pulling Ragwort !

Thank you so much Paul for your hard work today, a pleasure to work with as always

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’.
