Wildlife Group sessions – Holy Trinity Church

0 Comment

Holy Trinity Churchyard

Date: Wednesday 29 June

Time: 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Meeting place: In front of Holy Trinity Church

Things to bring:  Gardening gloves, garden shears and garden rakes, the ones you would use for raking up leaves will be best, if you have them

The main tasks for this session will be raking up cut grass and cutting more around grave stones.

I hope you will be able to join us. Lex and I will provide as many tools as we can but it would be helpful if some people could bring their own. 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. 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,


Sally Rankin

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.

All volunteers are requested to adhere to the current government guidelines in relation to COVID-19.

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.
