Mike and the team will be tackling various bits around the Ups & Downs, possibly including the woods along Ranelagh Avenue. This will include clearing some scrub, especially in the margin area towards Rocks Lane and SE corner going towards the Mill Hill Intersection (where there is good quality acid grassland we need to conserve), scraping where the bramble has been cut around the trees in the open area, as well as some low branch trimming. There will be a mix of heavier work (mattocks, digging, raking) and lighter trimming. Hopefully not too much litter in this area, but litter pickers are welcome as always to fan out to other areas and join us for coffee!
