If you are looking for a peaceful walk this autumn in a natural area then look no further than St Catherine’s Road SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space) in Frimley. Owned by Surrey Heath Borough Council, this former school playing field is a great place to wander through meadows and admire the trees whilst relaxing on the benches.
The Blackwater Valley Volunteers have done a fantastic job cutting back the vegetation. It really opened up the area and makes you feel welcome.
Never content with just the one task, the volunteers also litter picked and cleaned the signs. Using there inventiveness and construction skills they then fixed a fence and one of the site signs that had rotted at the base.
Well done Paul, Mike, Edmund, Roger and Geoff!
Our tractors also had a chance to help. Stuart on the Kubota (seen above) helped cut back the bramble and our Massey tractor and mower attachment hay cut the meadows. This will help encourage wildflower species like Devil’s-bit Scabious to flourish.
Thank you to the volunteers for their help and the Surrey Heath Rangers for having us.
