Recently Stu, Mike, Eric, Dharma and I headed out to Thorn Hill to meet up with the ‘Blooming Marvellous’ volunteer group. The 10 strong volunteer group got to work right away helping us clear the laurel problem shown below.
We have been working on removing the laurel at Wellesley sites for a number of years now, this is to prevent the laurel dominating the woodland floor and preventing any other vegetation from growing.
As you can see the group did a fantastic job of clearing a massive amount of laurel, thanks for all the hard work from the volunteers.
