A Gorgeous Spring Morning

ENVIRONMENT GROUP

On a gorgeous Spring morning, a full squad tackled the front border at the Community Centre with unbound enthusiasm, spurred on by the return of Derby John, whose wit and raconteur has been sorely missed of late. We had a gentleman come along to see if he might join us in the future. Apparently he has a lot of experience with Age concern and thinks he will fit in quite nicely.C

Our next meeting will be on Monday 10th May at 9.30am, where we shall attempt to rejuvenate the entrance to the footpath at the top end of Walston Rd. On a personal note the team make it the best hours work for me of the month.

 



 

Invasive Bamboo Defeated

VILLAGE ENVIRONMENT GROUP


On a lovely crisp Spring morning the gang set about the bamboo in the community cemetery. Cheered on by walkers, we soon made short work of clearing it. I believe some of the team who worked hardest had noticed how quickly the cemetery was filling up and were worried about the spaces left for internment. On Sunday 7th March a few residents did a litter pick. The efforts of people like this help to keep Wenvoe a nice place to live.

Our next meeting is on Monday 12th April at 9.30am outside the Community Centre. If you would like to be as fit as this team, then join us.

 



 

Hardy Souls Behind the Cenotaph

VILLAGE ENVIRONMENT GROUP


At -20C the hardy souls set about clearing the overgrowth behind the cenotaph. Terry [he who must be obeyed] Ewington came to check that social distancing was being observed. Golden retriever Bungle passed by and refused all efforts of his owner to move Bungle on until he had been smoothed. If you would like to help us and learn some of Wenvoe’s history then Ian, Ieuan and the team would love to meet you. Our next gathering will be at 9.30am on the 8th March by the phone box.

January’s Planned Work Postponed

ENVIRONMENT TEAM

January’s Planned Work Postponed


Due to the rapid increase in Covid cases, it was decided that January’s planned work would be looked at next month. Most of the current team will hopefully have had their first vaccination by then, just saying.

Next meeting on Monday 8th February on the village green, where we will discuss our ambitions for the coming months.

The team would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the work done by the couple who regularly pick up the litter around the village.

 



 

Help Us With the Clean-up

Help Us With the Clean-up

The team met to clean up at the front of the community centre in October. We feel a civic duty to try and keep the village tidy. The one thing going for us at the present is the fact there are so few of us, that social distancing is never a problem. The team will meet again on the 9th Nov. in the phone box or on the village green if we have a good turn out

 



 

Death to Brambles

ORCHID FIELD RE-VISIT

Following last month’s visit to clear brambles by over a dozen workers, another attempt is planned to complete clearance of some areas on the field on Thursday 8th October from 9.30am. Hopefully the field will have had its annual cut and clear by this date. Please bring your own tools. All are welcome

 



 

Bramble Clearing Collective

ENVIRONMENT GROUP

Bramble Clearing Collective

The Wildlife Group had help from the Environment Team on a glorious morning at the orchid field. John made the suggestion to assist in clearing brambles.

We will meet on the second Monday of each month by the Community Centre at 9.30am in an attempt to keep the village tidy. October meeting Monday 12th. If anyone is interested and has an idea of where we should tidy up next, just come along and join in.

 

 



 

Orchard Field Work Group

ENVIRONMENT GROUP

Orchard Field Work Group

The group will meet on Monday 14th September by the gate to the Orchid Field at 9.30am with the aim to clear some of the rapidly growing brambles around the field. Please bring suitable tools and gloves. (Sharp garden shears are very good for cut-ting back).

The meeting is open to all who wish to attend. There is plenty of space to ‘social distance’ while working.
