If you wander onto the small green fields of the nature reserve next to Woodacre Road, Overpool you will see lots of new muddy mounds – about the size of a mole hill. Have no fear though moles aren’t responsible – the Rivacre Valley Volunteers are.
Today we spent another volunteer morning preparing the ground for the 25th of January 2017 when we’ll be working with Mersey Forest to plant over 600 new trees (Oak, Rowan & Hazel). The plan is to also involve one of the local schools so the children feel some ownership of the area rather than just us adults. The news trees will be providing new food sources and habitat for birds and other wildlife in the area.
If you would like to help on Wednesday the 25th of January 2017 then please get in touch. We’d like to know before hand how many are likely to turn up so we can have enough refreshments and tools.
