Hope everyone enjoyed the Indian Summer at the end of September.

Autumn has arrived. We always enjoy the woodland walks at this time of the year. Looking forward to the display of Autumnal colours.

Nature Trail repairs (free workout) – two stretches will benefit from more woodchips before the winter rain comes. So if anyone can spare a couple of hours and fancy some light workout, then join us. The purpose is to make the trail useable in all seasons.

  • Friday 14 @ 10 – noon.  Meet by the woodchips at Martlesham  Park entrance to work along Henry Wood section (far end of Moneyhole Park)
  • Saturday 15 @ 10 – noon. Meet by the woodchips at Wyton Park  entrance ( near the dog bin on the left side of the park).

Please bring a barrow, shovel or rake if you have one. Do dress appropriately for the weather.

Community Orchard – Last week Finesse removed the cluster of dead trees next to a bench & litter bin, thinned a section of the tree belt and trimmed some branches along the trail.

We would like to see the felled trees replaced with fruit trees to encourage wild life and to foster a unique Panshanger community identity. It can also help to preserve old varieties of  apples and pears.

Progressive councils in Chichester and even London are replacing ornamental trees with community orchards like pears, apples and cherries.

Contact us and Finesse if you share this view.
