Friends of Horsbere Brook work days

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

Sunday 15 December 10am to midday - Tree Planting #everytreecounts

Join us as we plant trees as part of our hedgerow restoration project. We will be planting trees donated from #woodlandtrust as part of the Woodland Trust Climate Change Fightback. We will be planting trees in the Farm Track Hedge and moving around the reserve to the woodland and hazel copse. 

Further details of the project

Friday 20 December 10am to midday - Woodland Tree Care

Join us as we care for our woodland trees. We will be checking deer and rabbits guards and replacing supports and ties. We will be mulching our trees too - bring a bucket if you have one! Meet us in the woodland behind the pylons. We look forward to seeing you!

Friday 17 January 10am to midday - Mulching The Mound Hedge

We will be mulching the new hedge around The Mound. Mulching suppresses weed growth and gives our new trees a nutrient boost. Find us in the hedge or by the large mulch pile on the farm track. 

Friday 21 February 10am to midday - Bramble Bashing Long Meadow

Join us trimming bramble and scrub from the edges of the grassland on the Long Meadow. Meet us in the Long Meadow.

Horsbere Brook FAS, Barnwood Link Rd, GL4 3HR

Friday 13 December 10am to midday - Hedge Restoration (Hucclecote Meadows)

We will continue restore hedges onsite. We will be trimming, reweaving and removing bramble from laid hedges around the site. Hedge laying enhances the habitat value of the hedge as a wildlife corridor and providing nesting sites for birds and small mammals. Find us in the hedge!
