HEDGE LAYING IN BLEWBURY THIS WINTER

November 22, 2017

This Winter Sustainable Blewbury’s hedge-laying group plan to lay hedges along Pound Furlong Lane and in Tickers Folly Field.

With a large programme of work ahead of us, the group would very much welcome new members who wish to learn the skills and help to maintain and improve Blewbury’s hedges. The first task is to coppice (cut) the hazel stakes and binders which are needed for the final stages and we plan to do this on 26th November, starting at 9.00. If you would like to join us then please contact Alex or John and we will advise on where and when to meet and what to wear. After that the actual hedge-laying will start in early December.

Hedge-laying is a traditional craft which has the benefit of strengthening and improving hedges and providing a much improved habitat for wildlife.
