Tuesday 6th October 2015 Chalk Stream River Cray Habitat Enhancements at Foots Cray Meadows. Some of the riverbank restoration work needs further attention. We will be on site from 1030 to 1530. Come along and join in.  Meet at the Leafield Lane Gate, Leafield Lane DA14 5EB.

Thursday 8th October Parish Wood Park Berwick Crescent, Sidcup, DA15 8HR. Four years on from extensive development of the park following funding from the GLA the pond and wetland need some attention including repairs to the duck Island. As a part of our partnership with the London Borough of Bexley the River Cray Project is teaming up with ‘The Friends of the Shuttle’ to deliver some maintenance to this valuable habitat. Meet at the Duck Pond (Berwick Crescent Side) 1030 – 1400.

In addition there will be invitation-only habitat management work at Thames Road Wetland with local sixth-formers, a clean-up with young people of Streamway (Bedons Brook) and an educational field trip for students at Foots Cray Meadows.
