Read All About It…

Over the past month Team Tawd have been joining The Purple Umbrella group for weekly visits to The Ecumenical Centre. They’ve been working on the new wheelchair accessible raised beds in the centres garden. Despite some really wet weather and cold snaps the troops have got stuck in and worked mighty hard. They have truly done some amazing work and they should be so proud. It’ll look absolutely fantastic when finished.

As well as the Ecumenical Centre work, Team Tawd have also been doing some amazing work days down in Tawd Valley Park. WLBC Ranger Service have also been joining Team Tawd helping with raking, sowing wild flower seeds in the meadow, ditch digging alongside the riverside path to protect the path from erosion, and improving the trenches flow into the scrape at the back of the allotments. Keep up the tremendous work everyone. We appreciate the valiant efforts.

Next up, The rain didn’t stop our intrepid troop of fungi finders last weekend as the local community explored the Tawd Valley Park with the help of the fabulous mushroom expert – Mark Buxton-Kelly at the Fungi Foraging event. Thank you to Mark and to WLBC Ranger Service for organising this event.

In other news – Don’t forget there’s still time to donate to our Save Our Wild Isles Crowdfunder to help us improve the natural habitat in and around the Half-Mile Lake. If you would like to donate then please click HERE.

And last but not least – All of us at Friends of Tawd Valley would like to welcome the WLBC Ranger Services newest ranger – Hallam. We look forward to working on many projects and hosting many events with him in the future.

And that’s your lot for this blog. Check back for more fantastic updates soon.
