Action for Silk Stream: River Action Day at Bentley Priory
28th September 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us for our Action for Silk Stream monthly volunteering days. They will be held on the last Thursday of each month.
Book your place here
Today we will clear bramble at Bentley Priory. This is to maintain and extend the species-rich grassland at Bentley Priory, one of the main reasons it has SSSI status. We’ll have two battery brush cutters and volunteers will be shown how to use these safely. We will cut bramble and then rake it up and create piles to rot down.
What to Bring:
- Dress for the weather and the task – long trousers and long sleeves are advisable as we will be working with brambles.
- Please bring a packed lunch, plenty of fluids, a hat and suncream if sunny.
- We will bring tea/coffee and biscuits.
- We will provide all other equipment needed for the event.
- There is a visitor centre with toilets where we will have lunch if it is raining.
Where to meet:
Meet at the meet at the northern end of Masefield Avenue, postcode HA7 3LY.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about accessibility. We will do our best to make this event as accessible as possible.
If you have any questions, please email Helen.Cardy@thames21.org.uk
Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Action for Silk Stream is a project that is helping to tackle the effects of climate change by making space for water, reducing flooding and improving water quality in the Silk Stream catchment for the benefit of communities and the environment.
This is an event designed for the community to engage the local public with the river and not for corporates. If you are interested in a bespoke corporate volunteer day. Please visit our website https://www.thames21.org.uk/get-involved-2/corporateteamdays/
