Meet at the car park at 10am. Clive will lead: either hedging to improve the experience of the bridleway down the back of the Hill, or further work on our beautiful coppice coupes.

Spring is coming on: primroses, catkins and birdsong. The peregrine has been seen hunting around. Don’t miss out.

Wear comfortable scruffy clothes. Be ready to get wet and and dirty. All abilities catered for, tools and training provided. Enjoy.

On Saturday 22nd we planted a mix of hazel, oak, rowan, hawthorn and holly into the first coppice coupe.

Work parties generally meet on the second Tuesday and fourth Saturday of each month. March dates will be Tuesday 10th and Saturday 28th.

Some great stuff to watch while you’re stuck inside:

Stewart Edmunds of SWT used a camera trap to capture this amazing footage of wildlife on the Hill last year. Have a look to see some unexpected species just where you go for a walk (and you can also enjoy the beautiful views of the hill in summer: not long to wait now):

Brian Simmonds found this historic educational documentary on Facebook: Harlescott Grange Primary School children on the Hill in, I think, the early ’60s. You will recognize some of the individual trees, but the views have changed. These remarkable children will now be in their 60s or 70s. I wonder if we could identify them and invite them back to the Hill?
