Nature’s Gym workday in Hither Green Triangle

Friends & volunteers on the steps ay 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…..

October-December 2016 Nature’s Gym programme now available

2-karl-and-jane

Please find attached the Nature’s Gym programme for October-December 2016.  There are a couple of site scheduled that we’ve not been to for ages which will therefore probably be new to a lot of you!  Due to the number of projects that we have been asked to carry out, there are quite a few different sites this time and so we’ve not been able to stick to the fewer sites idea that we have discussed. Even so, we hope that you will all find something to enjoy!

The last session of the year will be on Saturday 10th December, the exact location and event will be confirmed nearer the time.  We will return from the Christmas break on Thursday 12th January.
