Future conservation work

Mark Tozer the Acting Up Parks Manager has cancelled all official conservation work until September, however Himalayan Balsam pulling will be going ahead on chosen dates.

The system for conservation tasks has been changed by the Park Manager. Instead of the Friends working direct with the ranger to organise conservation, the Park Manager will now discuss tasks with the ranger, and the Friends will be invited to participate, along with other volunteers – see above.

Previously – The council cut down the brambles along the banks of the dock feeder at the Blackweir end of the park. Thus removing the  shelter and nesting sites for the birds, butterflies, insects and hedgehogs.  Also they mowed the grass under the trees opposite the playing fields, killing several hedgehogs.   There was no method or reason as to how they mowed and cut back the brambles. We would still like you to please let us know if you witness other disturbances to wild life and also let your Councillors know.  Hedgehogs are a threatened species so lets stop this killing
