Fun at Farnborough Gate

On our Tuesday task it was my first official time leading the volunteer task, and how lucky I was to have such a fantastic team, Although 2 of them almost got lost !

As you can see from the pictures below, Farnborough gate needed the BVCP treatment,

and who better to the rescue than Tony, Mike, David, Andrew, John and Duncan. Look at this amazing transformation ! Even after the most indecisive weather of the summer the volunteers braved the rain and turned Farnborough gate around.


Thank you so much gang, I shall definitely snatch the good biscuits for you more often 🙂

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’.
