In the Autumn, box hedging was planted behind the railing along Conway Road to soften a rather harsh area.
On our March Activity Day, Enfield’s Conservation Volunteers joined us. These hard workers helped us remove some leylandii hedge around the tennis courts: we’ll replace it in steps with native shrubs. The Volunteers also planted a native field maple and silver birch trees in the wild area by the back court – start of a spinney!
Did you wonder what the floating booms were for? Ducks like them, of course, but they are there to try to stop blanket weed choking the pond again. We’ve built and launched another one and will see this summer if they help!
