Friday 30th August 2013 Brackenhill Urban Landscape Area, Westcroft Road, Great Horton, BD7
We did not cut the meadow areas today because of ongoing repairs with the autoscythe. But that does not mean we had nothing to do. We were kept busy tackling Japanese knotweed and Himalayan balsam, controlling there spread gives the other ground flora a chance to thrive. The hedge along roadside was trimmed, it is good to see it growing well after it was laid. Pathways through the site were cut back and kept open, which makes the site more attractive for visitors. Then we repaired some of the steps and pathways, were the surfacing had been washed down the hill from previous heavy rain. The steps were really awkward to walk on but are now a bit safer. Plus litter was collected and we had filled about 10 bags by the time we had finished.
Today we worked with 10 volunteers.
