Sustainable Blewbury

April 10, 2024

Thanks to everyone who came to help plant the 280 whips making up the new hedge at the Nature Reserve on 9 March. Now to watch it grow.

Next volunteering sessions are on 6 and 27 April from 0930 to 1200. And thanks to the 13 litter-pickers on 16 March. We collected about 22 sacks of rubbish from the ditches alongside the roads; fewer than last year because there was less rubbish to pick up. We have overcome the backlog but how do we stop it being dropped in the first place?

Celebrating one year of the Nature Reserve and AGM,

Weds 24 April 8pm, Melland Room (Blewbury Clubhouse)

Glen Meadows and Martin Latham will talk on “Blewbury Nature Reserve: the first year” and show photos of what wildlife has been seen or we expect to see in the coming months as well as showing what our great volunteers have done. Free refreshments. Following the talk, John Ogden, chair of the Trustees, will give a short report on SB’s past year and his vision for the coming year. It is an opportunity find out more about SB and to give your ideas about new projects. Everyone invited.
