Friends of Horsbere Brook Work Days

We meet to help with management activities at Horsbere Brook Flood Alleviation Scheme.   

Friday 18th October 10am - 12 - Bramble Bashing, The Long Meadow

We will be clearing scrub and bramble from the path edges in the Long Meadow to prevent it encroaching on the grassland. Join us in the Long Meadow. 

Saturday 19th October 11- 4 - Hedge Laying - Farm track hedge

We will begin to lay the hedgeline along the farm track. The trees planted in 2014 are now ready to lay. This will enhance the wildlife value of the hedge. Find us in the hedge! Drop by if you have any time to spare during the day. We have lots of trees to mulch too!

Friday 15th November 10am - 12 - Hedge Laying - Farm track hedge

We will continue to lay the farm track hedge to enhance its habitat value. We will also be mulching hedge trees (starting on the farm track and moving around The Mound). We look forward to seeing you! (find us in the hedge).

Horsbere Brook FAS, Barnwood Link Rd, GL4 3HR

Sunday 20th October 11 am - 1 - Hedge Laying (Hucclecote Meadows)
