April 2016 Task

On Sunday 3rd April 2016 Lea Bridge Conservation Volunteers (LBCV) will be doing a practical conservation task in the Middlesex Filter Beds. The tasks will include bed wall clearance. Mosses and ferns present will be  left and the removal will concentrate on the bramble and woodier species. This will help preserve the walls and also prevent the ferns and mosses being swamped by dominant species. There will also be an opportunity to plant Bed 1a with bat friendly flora.

Please wear sturdy footwear  and appropriate clothing for the work and weather.

As always no experience required

Please bring some lunch. LBCV will provide tools, training, gloves, tea, coffee and biscuits.

We will meet at 1 Connaught Close, Leyton, London E10 7QS from 9.30am and leave at 10am for a mini-bus trip to the task site. Volunteers are welcome to meet us on site, before the tools talk, please text 07757 766950, before 9am on Sunday, so we can provide enough tools and gloves. Indoor bicycle parking is available at Connaught Close.

As usual we will have post task refreshments in the Hare and Hounds on Lea Bridge Road.
