This Lesnes Abbey (Woods) Conservation Volunteers group, which maintains and enhances the woods for wildlife meets at 12 noon at the picnic tables by the Lesnes visitor centre every second Sunday. No particular skills are needed to get involved, there is no membership fee and new recruits are always welcome.
Sunday August 7 – Wildflower Meadow
Controlling the more aggressive species that threaten to engulf the wildflowers. Sunblock is recommended.
Sunday August 21 – Heath
Keeping the bracken and brambles in check to encourage the heather. Again sunblock is recommended.
Sunday September 4 – To be arranged. Probably a walk but perhaps we could decide on the day.
Sunday September 18 – Fountain Pond
Clearing some of the more vigorous species to allow more room for the frogs and newts. Bring your wellies!
