On Tuesday Bobbie & Stu were joined by a gaggle of BVCP volunteers who kindly lent a hand working on the byeways leading to Ash Green Meadows. Working closely with Surrey Public Rights of Way team, they removed redundant bollard bases and installed new removable lockable bollards by the car park and on Ash Green Lane West. This cunning system means that land owners and right of way teams can still retain their essential access. It turned into a bit of a challenge to dig out the old metal work, but the team worked really well and also removed lots of dumped metal they unearthed.
If you’d like to help out then we’ll be hosting another conservation task next Friday 14th December from 10am – 1pm, where we’ll be cutting back the paths to open up access to the meadows. Please meet in the car park at the end of South Lane;
- All tools and training are provided.
- Please bring suitable old clothes, waterproof, boots if you have them.
- We’ll bring hot drinks, cappuccinos and biscuits.
