Stu’s Back.

Good Morning All,

Tuesday was my first day back at Ash lock. For me and my family it has been a very long lockdown. Working from home for me was interesting, as you know I am a practical go out and get it done, not an desk worker. That being said it has not been quiet as I have been home schooling my 4 young children (I do not envy teacher’s). I am currently now working on a Tuesday and Thursday then back to full time in August.

Tuesday was very exciting for me to start and get back to work and some type of normality. Blackwater Valley currently have the Massey tractor and hired the Amazone cut and collect.  I headed over to Shawfield and got the rotational cut of the meadows there done. It was great being back on site after a long time away. Thursday I avoided the rain and went to Snaky lane nature reserve, Rushmoor bottom to do their meadow cuts. In the damp conditions the Amazone has been working well this year.

I hope to see and work with you all in the not too distant future.

Ranger Stu.

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’.
