Mill/Marsh Meadows

Date and time: Wednesday 14 June 2023, 9:30am – 12:30pm

Meeting place:  The Mill Meadows car park, just beyond the River & Rowing Museum. I have made arrangements with the Town Council for volunteers to park for free for the duration of the work party

Things to bring: gardening gloves

The tasks for this session will be general maintenance work although we must avoid disturbing nesting birds. As always, litter picking will be on the agenda for anyone willing to do it. See below for the more general information. Attached please find the risk assessment.

I hope you will be able to join us at our events in June. If you haven’t already done so, could I please ask everyone who intends coming to work parties to provide the contact details specified in the table below. Lex has been reviewing our procedures in relation to risk assessments and has found that these details are supposed to be lodged with the Town Council. The procedures state that ‘All information will be kept safe and confidential.’

Please contact Lex or me if you have any queries. It would be helpful if you could let us know if you are attending a session to help ensure we have enough tools, tea, coffee and cake. Lex works for the Town Council on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. His work mobile is 07508 427026.

If you know anyone else who may be interested, could you please forward this e-mail to them. If you no longer wish to be reminded about these sessions, please let me know.

Best wishes,

Greener Henley Wildlife Group sessions

Our sessions are generally pleasant and sociable occasions. Some of the work is quite strenuous, but there are always lighter tasks for those who would prefer them, for whatever reason. We have a break mid-morning when refreshments are provided: tea, coffee and cake. Please bring your own gardening gloves. Any gardening gloves will be all right for tasks like pulling Himalayan Balsam but heavier ones will be needed for working with brambles. No previous experience is necessary, and tools are usually provided. Tough clothes and stout footwear are recommended. Marsh Meadows is often wet underfoot so waterproof footwear is recommended when we are working there, particularly if working in the pond area. Volunteers are welcome to join us for the full three hours or any part of them.

If you intend coming to work parties and haven’t already provided the information in the table below, could I please ask you to do so.
