Wellesley Workers

It’s now the end of a long day hosting the AAA, – a large Wellesley Woodland event for pupils from eight local schools. We’ll post later with more news of the event, but in the meantime I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the team for going above and beyond to make it such a success, with most of us working until 7:30pm to clear up.

All the Blackwater Valley Ranger Team were out today with 7 staff and our Trainee Adam. It’s great to see everyone band together to help. A special thank you is much deserved by Laura for doing an excellent job organising the event & managing the rangers, teachers and volunteers.

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’.
