Nature’s Gym workday in Hither Green Triangle

Towards the end of October, volunteers with Nature’s Gym and the Friends of Hither Green Triangle worked in the Nature reserve between platforms 4 and 5 of Hither Green Station. This is a little known about and hidden away site, but is full of lots of interesting wildlife.

Working on the bank

Working on the bank

The Friends and volunteers have been working on this site for a long time and a lot of great work has been achieved.  On this work day we worked with a local contractor to clear the bank near platform 5 so that commuters and other travellers can peep in to the site.  They also did another huge litter pick – one of the on going problems of the site.

Nature’s Gym location change – 8th December

Dear all Nature’s Gym volunteers,

Please note that Judith and I have had to change the Nature’s Gym session on Thursday 8th December.  We will now be at Albion Millennium Green and will be working on the railway path and hopefully finishing the cutting back of the hedge that we started last time.

See you there!

Take it away Sam…..
