As spring approaches volunteers have been very busy in the valley doing some really great work!
The tree planting that happened in January has been improved upon again with the
help of Ben Greenway from Mersey Forest and helpers from a local school. Ben sourced and planted some semi-mature trees have been planted in the same area and the students have planted a new hedgerow to create a wildlife corridor.
The regular volunteers also did made improvements in the valley. They fixed one of the blue bell signs that had been knocked down and put a hard area down below one of our benches to help users from getting muddy feet.
Unfortunately Tim the Ranger reports that there are signs of Balsam seedlings showing up now. It can become quite wide spread and hard to control so no doubt this will be a future focus of the volunteer groups.
On behalf of all the users of the Valley, thank you to the hard work of the volunteers over the last month
