Sadler’s Wooding

Once a year, we join North East Norfolk conservation Volunteers at Sadler’s Wood, a 20-acre site of mixed grassland and woodland on the eastern side of North Walsham managed, by the NNDC rangers team. Today (March 13th), three of us joined about 12 NENCV volunteers, three rangers and half a dozen of NNDC’s own Muddy Boots volunteers, along with three dogs, to replace rotten pathway posts, to plant tree whips in amongst the pine woodland and to clear litter. At the end of the work party, we began cutting back bracken but time didn’t allow us to complete this: the parking area next to the park is right next to estate housing and near a school, so at this time of day – mid-afternoon – parental parking increases, so we left smartly at 15.15.

These joint work parties are valuable, as we get to meet other volunteers and compare notes on such procedures as H & S briefings, how we organise our fortnightly sessions and, most importantly, what we provide for coffee breaks! We will continue to work with NENCV as they are going to help us from time to time at our nearest site to North Walsham – Stow Heath in Felmingham. Our next work party is at West Beckham Old Allotments on Thursday March 21st, when a couple of NENCV volunteers may be joining us.
