Can you spare a few hours on a Tuesday? Between 10am and 1pm we will be carrying out important conservation work on Horsell Common. We will be removing some of the invasive Rhododendrum's and Cherry Laurel that is creeping through the pine woodlands and onto the heathland, replacing old fencing to keep in the cattle and other tasks around the Common. Then after bird nesting season we will be clearing scrub off the heathland.
Here are the current dates for Tuesdays. They are subject to change and take note some are a week apart and others 2 or 3 weeks. Before each week a reminder will be sent out so that you can book in. Sundays will start again on September as usual.
