Friends of Horsbere Brook Work Days

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

Saturday  24th August 2 - 5 pm - Tree Care in the woodland.

Since planting in 2015 some of our trees have outgrown their guards! We will be replacing guards, restaking and supporting the trees. Please bring any old bicycle inner tubes and an old pair of scissors if you have any. Meet in the woodland behind the pylons.


Friday 16th August 10am - 12 - Seed Planting, The Long Meadow

For several years we have been collecting seed from Hucclecote Meadows SSSI and sowing it on The Long Meadow. The project has seen an increase in the diversity of species onsite. We will continue this project using seed from the Hucclecote Meadows. Meet by the farm track or find us on The Long Meadow. Bring a hand fork or trowel if you have one.


Sunday 25th August 1:30 - 7 pm - Bug and Tree Day!

Join us building bug hotels (The Mound, behind the pylon near the railway) and caring for our woodland trees (in the woodland). We will begin working on the bug hotels and then move to the woodland. Drop by if you have any time to spare. We would welcome toilet rolls, card egg boxes, old bricks, old terracotta pots and carpet for the bug hotels. Bring a bucket if you have one for the woodland mulching. For further information or directions please email felicity.davies@gloucester.gov.uk
