Along this part of the canal there is a long strip of hedgerow that is near enough derelict!
It”s grown all tall and straggly and is no longer much use as a home or protection for wildlife.
Unfortunatly thousands of miles of hedgerow have been lost this way in the last 50 years, and its been a major blow for the creatures that depend on them for food, shelter and as safe corridors to get from one habitat to another.
This is where you come in!
What this hedge needs is laying –the ancient technique of cutting and bending over the
trunks just leaving just enough bark intact for the plant to grow up again so it ends up stronger and more bushy. At first this looks brutal, but is actually good for the hedge and makes it live longer.
How will the laying be done?
We will cut down the an online casino hedge using saws, loppers and billhooks, and weave the spare branches into a temporary barrier/ wildlife shelter. Its physical work and good exercise – but don’t worry if you haven’t done it before or are a bit unfit – there will be full training and you can take it at your own pace.
We will provide you with gloves and tools, but you need to wear strong footwear (preferably steel toe caps if you have them) and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Make sure you’ve got something
warm and waterproof with you in case the weather turns nasty, and bring some lunch to fuel you – we provide the brews! You don”t need any special skills just willingness to get involved! Health and safety and basic equipment training on the day
