The Bascote Road Scrubs Community Nature Reserve facebook page now has a new name.

The change has been made to better reflect the wider nature conservation activities within the parish. News about the nature reserve will continue but now with extra content covering other activities.

Whites Spinney FEBRUARY 2022

Woodland Activities and Crafts

Saturday 26th February at 2pm.

(Last chance before bird nesting season begins)

Following on from the previous successful woodland activities’ afternoon at the spinney, here is another chance to help us look after a very special place and join the parish wildlife warden for an afternoon of wildlife conservation activities (subject to no changes to pandemic restrictions).

To keep the spinney in good health some light woodland management is needed. Come along and help prune some of the small trees to make room for more wildlife.

Also, get hands on with a rural craft, making hurdle fences.

Hurdle fencing at the spinney entrance.

None of the activities are physically demanding, and provide an enjoyable way to spend time in the great outdoors!

Please bring loppers and secateurs, plus gloves, stout footwear and suitable outdoor clothing.

Whites Spinney can be found just off the Lias Line Cycleway between Bascote Road and Stonebridge Lane.

More information on Whites Spinney can be found on its own dedicated page.
