VOLUNTEER DAYS – PALEWELL COMMON AND FIELDS

We have volunteer days with Nature’s Gym (Glendale – Richmonds conservation partner).

As a rule of thumb we meet at Pistachios cafe which you can find situated just a short way from where the cars are parked.  The time of meeting is usually 10am.

There are a variety of activities undertaken on the volunteering days which generally improves not only the look of Palewell Common & Fields but also the environment.

It also sometimes is a chance to take up a new skill and or to socialize.

Dates for the next volunteering days at Palewell Common & Fields are:

On Tuesday 21st October we hopefully will have some bulbs to plant on the old ‘pond’ area.  These bulbs are to fill in gaps in what is our gorgeous annual daffodil display. In addition, work on clearing the woods and paths will  be undertaken.

Though a low turnout, I had fun, going around butterfly and bird counting, though they seemed to fly off as soon as I arrived I managed to record a few, not that I have a clue to recognize what they are, however, nice bedtime listening! 🙂 I did manage to entice another resident to come and help as he was minding his own business having a relaxing stroll, but needs must at times and he enjoyed it 🙂

Today at 11am we headed down to Palewell Common to meet with Glendales Nature Gym to do some volunteering work, hoping to meet with a crowd eager to help!  Perhaps a crowd was a bit optimistic.  Apart from Glendale, sadly there were only three others present at the beginning including  myself and those 3 in total were the Friends of Palewell Common Committee members.

This did not deter anyone as plants and various planting instruments were brought out.

The sun was shining and it was a fine day to be knelt amongst the long grass of the orchard to do some work.

Glendales brought along chicory, primrose, borage herb, robert wild flower and poppies to plant, the latter courtesy of David, Chairman of the Friends of Palewell Common which he had picked up from this years Chelsea Flower Show.
