The Pals will mainly be checking and cutting back any bramble / gorse beginning to grow over paths – especially working on the top of the mound. And cleaning information boards and Litter picking.
Also, to encourage the heather patches to continue to spread, cut out gorse and broom where it is spreading into the heather. Heather growing on acid heathland is of special importance, and we’re lucky to have an area which is becoming stronger each year.
photos show before and after cutting back the holly to let more light in, and start opening p the area near the canal, so hopefully we’ll get a few new plants and flowers establishd here.
The risk assessments for groups working on Paddock Mound have to be submitted to Telford and Wrekin Council, so that their insurance, as the landowners, covers everyone working as part of the group.
It also gives a chance to see what tasks we’re planning to do – and why.
