Our volunteering day at Longney, Monday 8th May
As part of our informal get-together on 8th May, we’re teaming up with CPRE to help with their recently launched Hedgerow Hero project. Hedges are the country’s largest nature reserve and we’re going to assess the health of the hedges in and around our orchards at Longney and submit our findings to their national database. It’s all part of The Big Help Out
- Arrive: 10:30
- Hedgerow Hero and Orchard Help Out 10:30 to 13:00
- Relaxation and Refreshment 13:00 onwards
First orchard is Long Tyning (long and thin) then Bollow. Also on site are Middle & Lower Orchards which have been planted up with heritage apple and plum trees of regional/national importance.
We look forward to seeing you! Any queries to David Lingren email@example.com
There is a barn (with interpretation signage), chairs, composting loo and running cold water. Re health and safety, there is a first aid kit in the store in the barn. The ground is uneven, there are some brambles and low hanging branches. The river Severn is fenced off.
