On Tuesday 29th the volunteers joined me at the base of Redan Hill, Aldershot to carry on working our way through the tall, dense laurel. This area of woodland at the base of the hill is part of a selection of sites we refer to as Wellesley Green Corridor, which we manage on behalf of Grainger plc. Native plants, such as Holly are now starting to sprout from the woodland floor, showing we’re making progress in return the woodland to what it should be.
As you can see, the laurel is pretty tall and dense! As the majority of volunteers set to work on the laurel, Sarah and Vic got a fire started. Melvyn and Janet got stuck in to litter picking, finding such goodies as a BBQ, one high heel boot and nearly all the kitchen appliances you could want.
By the end of the day, everyone had done a really good job and suddenly you could see sights that were previously obscured.
Thank you to everyone who came out and did a great job.
