Have you been to Sandilands recently and seen the result of your efforts two years ago? You should...it is beautiful! And also, a valuable and effective sea defence. Isn\'t it great to know we can make a difference to our environment?
November 12 2-3.30p.m. (Remembrance Sunday) Bonfire and woodland clearing at Rigsby Wood. Everybody enjoys this activity and we love to see how this lets more bluebells flower in the spring. Bring your older brother/sisters, cousins and friends along, with secateurs, loppers and thick gloves.
