Repaired notice board

The notice board has now been repaired by Bill and Phil. This was thanks to a kind resident who uses the wood donating the perspex to repair it. They were disgusted it had been vandalised.

So a big thank you to them.

One of the fallen branches

The picture shows the size of the branch that the high winds brought down . So if you do walk through the woods remember to be careful if its windy.

Vandalisam and fallen branches at Sharphill Wood

Phil and Bill have been up to the wood this afternoon and removed the large fallen branch from the eastern path so it is now walkable.

On the main centre they have removed the fallen branch and that is also now walkable.

We have also suffered some vandalism over the last few days. The new notice board that Rushcliffe Borough Council paid for has been damaged at the Wheatcroft Entrance.The glass on the front door was smashed with a large rock.

It has been reported to Rushcliffe Borough Councils Anti Social Behaviour Team. If you know who has done this, please contact the Council at customerservices@rushcliffe.gov.uk or ring them on 0115 981 9911.

Work Party 24/05/2015

We enjoyed decent weather again today, despite the forecast of probable light rain. The main task was further attention to whips around the western perimeter. Many of these, planted about 30 months ago, were ready to have their canes and guards removed, and in some cases they were topped to encourage a more bushy shape and to prevent them bending over as a result of being top heavy. Some of the encroaching vegetation was also removed. Many of these whips, mainly blackthorn, dog rose and privet, should now survive without too much attention.

A lovely sunny day for a work party, not to hot or cold.
We had a group of geo cache people to do their give back to the  community day today.
what a nice lively bunch they are, (" does anyone really know anyone's real name? :-)
We started at the Peveril entrance on the right hand side to clear up a mess of branches and twigs that had been left by den builders and bike track builders!

Our work party 22/03/2015

We enjoyed beautiful sunny weather for this work party, as well as plenty of bird song (in particular Skylark, Blue Tit and Blackbird), a calling Green Woodpecker and a drumming Great Spotted Woodpecker. The main task was to block off some more gaps in the western boundary and some unofficial paths being formed off the western path. There was plenty of dead wood around to achieve this, but in addition we felled a couple of multi-stemmed sycamores to make stakes for containing the dead hedge across a 12 metre gap in the boundary at one point. In addition, Mike transplanted a wild privet plant growing in his garden, David brought up another load of stones for a muddy section of the main path, and Phil tamped the steps at the southern entrance.
