Friends of Shedfield Common
Local volunteers are working with Shedfield Parish Council to help maintain and improve the Common for walkers and for wildlife. We are a friendly welcoming group so do come and join us.
We meet on the third Sunday of each month, at 10am -2pm , at the B2177 lay-by. Next meeting TBC in line with Govt guidelines https://www.gov.uk/guidance/enabling-safe-and-effective-volunteering-during-coronavirus-covid-19https://www.gov.uk/guidance/enabling-safe-and-effective-volunteering-during-coronavirus-covid-19. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. 01329830060
We will be following strict rules to prevent spread of coronavirus. Everyone needs to wear gloves and appropriate clothing and maintain social distancing.
We aim to remove weeds around the newly planted trees along with removal of bracken and some small saplings in areas where we are trying to reestablish heathlands.
"Despite the weather, the Friends of Shedfield Common and HCV ( Hampshire Conservation Volunteers) achieved a great clearance of laurel on the boundary of the common overlooking Heathlands ( F) which had been allowed to spread unchecked for decades.
Thank you to all of those who gave up their time in such wet conditions.
The Friends meet at 10am at the lay-by on the third Sunday of every month for a morning of enjoyable exercise improving the Common for residents and wildlife.
We would welcome volunteers so please contact email@example.com or ring 01329 830060 and one of the councillors will get back to you.
