SCRUB CLEARENCE IN CHANDOS PARK 

Join the volunteering team to help make a difference in your local
community by improving the river for wildlife and for people.
Come to learn some new skills and look after the Edgware Brook.

As part of the ongoing project we are going to be doing scrub clearance events at Chandos park to improve the visibility of the Brook.

We will provide all the tools required, but we need your help to achieve this.

Come along, choose your tool, get stuck in making a difference.

Connecting with nature has been proven to help with stress and improve wellbeing.

Not only will you be achieving something positive for the environment, and for yourself, but you will also get to see a different side of the park and Brook.   

 

 

As part of our scrub clearance event, we will be asking people to help us by suggesting art projects we can create, that will benefit the wildlife in the park. For example, we would like to use the wood from the clearance events to build artful bug hotels, artful hibernaculum’s, maybe animal totems, and attractive dead hedges. We want to hear your ideas, members of the public like yourself have lots of great ideas we might be able to incorporate into features along the Brook, to make the river even more attractive to both people, and the wildlife.   

 

The meeting point will be HERE at the RED DOT:

WHAT YOU MIGHT NEED TO KNOW.

Times of the event will be from 1030am -1400pm.

Parking is available in the car park entrance on Camrose Ave.

You will be working so please do bring a lunch with you and water.

Tea and coffee is usually provided by a local Volunteer, and sometime even home made biscuits (which are very nice!) 

Toilet Facilities are usually available in the park from the resident nursery, otherwise there is a high street not far!

Please check the calendar for future events that may still have spaces available or email the Thames21 Brent Rivers Engagement and Restoration Support Officer, Michael O'Neill on michael.oneill@thames21.org.uk if you would like information about how to get involved or future events.
