The disused allotments adjacent to Brasted recreation ground have been regenerated over the last 15 years into a community woodland.  Tree planting projects, including participating in the Guinness Book of records attempt in 2000, have been undertaken by volunteers joined by clients from Horizons Day Opportunities Centre who have also helped with ongoing maintenance.  This area is currently used as a Dog Walk but the Parish Council is proposing to develop it further, creating wildflower meadows, habitat piles and a nature trail, so that it can be used as an outdoor classroom for environmental studies by local schools as well as becoming a more enjoyable facility for the parish.
North West Kent Countryside Partnership will send a team of volunteers on Thursday 16th February and Thursday 2nd March 10am to 4pm to clear brambles and blackthorn and prune and thin out invasive birch and sycamore trees.
Volunteers Required
If you would like to join the volunteers you would be most welcome - come for all or part of the day and wear sensible footwear and clothing.  Some tools are provided but if you want to bring any tools please feel free.  Refreshments are provided but you will need to bring a packed lunch if staying all day.
