Himalayan Balsam

Cancellation of August Gardening Event

August 2, 2019

Following consultation with the Parish Gardener and others we have decided not to go ahead with the proposed August Gardening Event. The objective was to root out Himalayan Balsam in the Old Mine Site area , as it was coming in to flower. In the event the amount of work involved has proved insufficient to make the project worthwhile; and the result can be readily achieved by our Parish Gardener in short order.

There will be other community activities later in the year – associated with our collaboration with Shincliffe Primary School and our Autumn Litter Pick
